Ink wells can be purchased at various locations. Inks can be used to write with, in marbling, and to stain crafted wooden items.

Scented ink may not be used to stain or marble.

Scented inks

Scented inks are only available from the specialty ink stall in the Djelibeybi bazaar (which has a rotating stock). They can be used to write with, but cannot be used for staining or marbling.

Some of the scents are:

  • amber
  • anise
  • apricot
  • cat urine
  • camel dung
  • cardamom
  • clove
  • coffee
  • fennel
  • guava
  • jasmine
  • juniper
  • Klatchian rose
  • milk and honey
  • mint
  • ocean
  • orange
  • passion fruit
  • peanut butter
  • plum
  • pomelo
  • raspberry
  • rosemary
  • spring rain
  • sweetgrass
  • tea rose
  • thyme
  • vomit
  • yarrow


Ink is sold in several locations. Unless otherwise noted, the colours available are random, and rotate within their slots.

Addlemeyer's Ecclesiastical Curiosity Shop, on Grunefair in Ankh-Morpork has a rotating stock of seven different groups of colours: (clearlake blue, cloudy grey, raindrop grey), (iris purple, sungold), (wild thyme, moss green, copper flecked brown, heather-coloured), (black, green, sepia), (sea green, sea gull grey, seadrift green, seafoam green), (lime mist, melonade orange, copper, lemon twist, spicy mustard yellow, kitten whiskers white, seamstress pink), and (battlefield crimson, dried blood brown, silver flecked black). If you buy one of a particular group you may uncover a different ink from that group.

A tannery on Phedre Road in Ankh-Morpork has a fixed stock of dark blue, purple, sunlight yellow, red, and black.

Toomer Stationers on Scoone Avenue in Ankh-Morpork sells random inks for &&&&&&&&&&&&+500 $1.25, as well as speedwell blue ink in crystal ink wells for $90.

Salter Rhogain's Legibles in the Magic Emporium on Sator Square in Ankh-Morpork sells random inks.

Batchev's World of Maps on Ankh Street in Ankh-Morpork sells black ink.

A specialty ink stall in the Djelibeybi bazaar seems to be the only place to get scented ink (though it also sells the other kind). Unlike most of the other shops, you cannot usually "uncover" a different colour of ink by buying one (although if you buy several from the same slot you may find another colour). The first two inks seem to always be brown and blue.

A papyrus stall in the Djelibeybi bazaar sells random inks.

The post office in Djelibeybi sells black ink.

Academy Legibles in the Academy of Artificers in Sto Lat sells random inks.

A corner shop on Rimwards Road in Sto Lat sells random inks.

A stationer's shop on Quirm Road in Sto Lat sells red, emerald green, blue, black, and one random ink.

The Lancre Hunters' Trader in the Hunters' guild outpost near Ohulan Cutash sells copper, dark grey, Lancre green, dark green, leaf green, bronze, emerald green, and forest green. (This works like the shops with random colours, just with a smaller selection.)

Felicity Avenue Stationers in Genua sells purple, red, blue, and black ink.

A calligrapher's shop on Diamond Place in Bes Pelargic sells random ink.

A school shop on Rhinu Road in Bes Pelargic sells black ink.

The craft room of the Ninja guild has a fixed stock of red, pink, crimson, orange, brown, yellow, green, cobalt, cyan, blue, purple, violet, grey, and black.
