# Klatchian Foreign Legion

Klatchian Foreign Legion HQ map by Kefka updated for Quow's Cow Bar

## Description

The Klatchian Foreign Legion is a special force set up by Klatch to defend its vague desert borders against predatory neighbours and the D'regs, a nomadic desert tribe. The Legion accepts recruits from any country and is known as a refuge for the disgraced, the fugitive and the lovelorn.

It is said that people join the Klatchian Foreign Legion to forget everything (except sand) and this seems to work, because no one in the Klatchian Foreign Legion can remember why they are there. Or their name. Or their Rank. The Klatchian Foreign Legion has a famed drinking and marching song, which goes "Er...".

## Location

The base camp of the Klatchian Foreign Legion is located in the Tsortean Desert, approximately 85 miles northwest of Djelibeybi.

## Playing Style

The Klatchian Foreign Legion is a very combat-focussed guild. It will interest Numberchasers as well as players wishing to fighting with daggers, maces, swords and polearms. Stemming from their tough desert environment, legionnaires are also good with directions and can navigate around with a map much easily.

For new legionnaires, a good option to consider is to wield sword(s) and to use parry as your main defense as the stats and skill bonuses align, however your weapons choice and fighting style is up to you.

At this time, it is not recommended to advance adventuring.movement.riding.camel and fighting.range.bow as there are no ridable camels or usable bows which can use the fighting.range.bow skill.

## Joining

Joining the guild is a fairly simple task, achieved by typing 'join' when you enter the Klatchian Foreign Legion outpost recruitment tent where Staff Sergeant Small resides.

Upon joining, she will give you a booklet detailing information about the Klatchian Foreign Legion that you can read.

## Learning

You can learn new commands and advance your skills in the Klatchian Foreign Legion outpost recruitment tent where Staff Sergeant Small resides.

Typing 'help here' will show you a list of commands you can use to learn and advance skills.

Type 'say teach me please' in this room to see if you can learn new commands.

## Facilities

• The Klatchian Foreign Legion outpost recruitment tent where you can:
• Join the guild
• Learn and advance from Staff Sergeant Small
• There is an amphora here which you can use to refill small canteens with water you can buy from the storage tent, type 'refill canteen with water'. Staff Sergeant Small won't let you use any other containers and you can only refill once in a while as the water is rationed, Small will stop you if you try to refill more.
• The Klatchian Foreign Legion outpost sleeping tent where you can practice and try to TM your crafts.medicine.firstaid skill. The syntax for this is: 'treat {sunburn|graze|wound} on {legionnaire|soldier|recruit}'.
• The Klatchian Foreign Legion outpost campfire is a smithy where you can fix weapons and armour.
• The Klatchian Foreign Legion mess tent is one of the Disc's many eateries where you can purchase food items. Note that you need to know written Djelian to read the menu.
• The Klatchian Foreign Legion outpost storage tent where Private Inside Leg sells a range of weapons, armour and clothing.
• You can also order custom knives (see Custom knives section for more information) from Private Inside Leg but you will need spoken Djelian to communicate.
• There is also a safe here that is included on the thief guild's list of safes and a newbie chest.

## Newbie Chest

The Klatchian Foreign Legion's newbie chest is a lost-and-found box in the Klatchian Foreign Legion outpost storage tent.

The box can be accessed by Non-Legion warriors as well.

## Custom knives

As is usual, you start an order by saying something about an order. There are several options to choose from, but as Private Inside Leg is quite forgetful, the options you choose may not bear any relation to what you actually get. The cost is also unpredictable (and unrelated to what he tells you when you order), and can be as much as &&&&&&&&&&+60256 DjToon 301.28 (or possibly more) or as little as &&&&&&&&&&&+2474 DjToon 12.37 (or possibly less).

It's possible to get:

Private Inside Leg whispers to you in Djelian with a Howondalandish accent: Your knife will look
sort of, you know, short and pointy.  With a thingy on the end.  Not the sharp end, the other one,
you know what I mean.
Private Inside Leg asks you in Djelian with a Howondalandish accent: Does that suit you?
You say in Djelian: yes
Private Inside Leg says in Djelian with a Howondalandish accent: Oh, we're done.  At least, we are
unless there's something I've forgotten.  Come back in one day and fifteen hours.  I can't promise
it will be done by then, but it might be.  Or it might not.


To collect the knife, speak Djelian and say "collect knife" to Private Inside Leg. This is his message if the knife isn't ready.

Private Inside Leg says in Djelian with a Howondalandish accent: Erm. Did you order something?  I
can't find it here.  Maybe if you come back later it'll turn up.

## Notes

• With adventuring.direction as a primary, Foreign Legionnaires will have an easier time navigating the Shades, Medina, and similar locations.
• It can get hot to very hot in the Legion camp during the summer, legionnaires can get heatstroke while wearing their armour in the heat and are recommended to obtain linen or silk clothes, desert robes or thobes to help cool them down.
• For players willing to wait to avoid walking/journeying all the way to the Klatchian Foreign Legion camp, there is a carriage route that is part of the Djelibeybi Caravan route that has a stop at the camp. See Carriages for more information.
