Delivering it at the entrance to the Drum, where Stren, Hrun and the splatter is worked (I just used "deliver letter").

This letter is addressed to: Mervin (not Hrun). In other words, it is Hrun, but if you look at him you will see that "this is not really Hrun" and "His name is actually Mervin" -- Datura

It isn't Mellie.

This is probably Mr Pin. -- Datura

_r_Go_tb__ger         Mr Go?tbERger ?
P__n__Shop            Paint Shop ?
Ps_udopol___Y_rd      Pseudopolis Yard
Isl__o__the__o_s      Isle of the Gods

It isn't Musqrat

This is probably Mr Goatberger, Print Shop, Pseudopolis Yard, Isle of the Gods -- Datura

Far Away

You read the letter:
Written in scribbled handwriting:
___i__O_iv_a
________'s_Wal_
___________

I figured the Olivia part as the last name, the place ends with "'s Wall" also obviously. The location is the part that I can't figure out. 11 Letters and the only thing that "matches" is Lancre Town. But alas none in sight for this letter. --Fewyn 19:36, 4 February 2015 (UTC) _> This Is OliVIA on Deadl MAns's Walk in Genua, she is LOcatesd in a tent. I thinks ehe a withc.

Any thoughts on what the third line might be? The recipient was Boy Willie (1st line) at Bes Pelargic (2nd line). I found him in the Imperial District on Wall Street near the Green Slab building. Groth 01:22, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Update - I think the third line is "The Agatean Empire" Groth 06:08, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Boy Willie - Bes Pelargic - The Agatean Empire

I make it out to be Security Guards at the First Imperial Bank but I can't seem to deliver -Z

Spawn Project

The tedious task of working out where letter NPCs spawn.

Many found by luck or by using the warrior track command in reverse - soon after reboot, finding NPC and then performing track in adjacent rooms iteratively until track stops working.

City NPC Verified*? Location(s)
Bes Pelargic Laggy-san Yes Theory: multiple spawn locations. Seen spawning at:

The southern end of Oyster Lane next to the Rainbow Bridge [n,w,nw,e,sw]. (Shoo-Li)

Spawn message: The Laggy-san wanders discreetly into the room.

Bes Pelargic, Bad Poo-Ning Mad Hamish Yes The Tuna Walk commercial area [e,nw,u].

Genua Casanunda No Tracked to: Royal Avenue [e,w,s]. (1 west of bank)
Genua Greig Schwitz No Tracked to: Pirate Avenue, outside a shop [s,nw,se]., post boot found at: Samedi Crescent, southwest portion [n,sw].

* Verified means: after deducing possible spawn spot it is tested by entering room after a reboot OR by killing NPC and waiting, with the NPC entering the room (best if NPC has unique spawn message, i.e. not 'arrives from the <direction>')

Repeated attempts to narrow down spawn locations of Genua NPC seems to indicate that they spawn in random locations. Will try a couple more times.
