If you do two delivery missions of the same level of difficulty back to back, the xp reward is halved for the second one and then halved again if you do another, etc. This resets to the full xp reward one hour after the most recent delivery mission of that difficulty level.

Times listed above are in the Disc temporal reality.

The money you receive as payment is usually in the currency used in the location where the recipient happens to be when the letter is delivered.

If you don't want to deliver the letter Frank gave to you, give it back to him; however, you will need to wait ten Roundworld minutes before you can attempt another delivery.

If you lose the letter and would like to get another without waiting for the delivery time to expire, tell Frank that you would like to quit. You will still need to wait the ten Roundworld minutes before he will give you another one.

If you find a letter another player has dropped or fumbled, you can return it to Frank who will tell you who it was given to. This does not make the letter available for other players if it has not expired yet. You may want to check the expiry before returning and tell the player if this is the case so that they can quit manually as above.

You cannot deliver while it is too dark for you to see the recipient.

Difficult customers

Difficult customers generally attack on sight or are very hard to reach.

Letters are limited, probably a maximum of 3-5 letters (possibly only 2) can be in circulation at any point. This means that if you log out with a letter, that's less one letter that can be delivered. If you got your hands on a letter and the target is dead, while it's entirely up to you, it might be better to hand it right back to Frank and wait that 10 minutes to get another letter rather than holding it till the NPC spawn. Certain NPCs like the smuggler captain or Triad Boss are almost always dead due to being hotspots. Please don't log out with difficult letters. You're making it hard for other fellow letter couriers.

NPC Location
Triad Boss Bes Pelargic, Medina
The Grflx Skund Forest, Large cave
Vyrt Ephebe

Spawns at A seafood-scented edge of the Harbour Market [s,w,nw,se,sw].

Avalanche Preventore Endless Halls (say 'Endless Halls' to Hermal of Sandelfon)
The Librarian Starts in the Unseen University, wanders (in L-space)
Smuggler captain Ephebe underground
Queen Shelox Gloomy Forest
The Clown (Ha'pennywise) Genua Sewers
Ice giants The Hub

Also found in the icefields surrounding the hub - which is safer for wizards and easier to recover corpses from due to the lack of background thaums.

T-shop proprietor The Travelling shop
Bug Ramtops
Thursday A Deserted Island (Thursday's Island)
Hotan Hwoar Ni Bes Pelargic, Sum Bing, The Snail, Hotan Hwoar Ni's Rare Armours
Security guards Bes Pelargic, First Imperial Bank
  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 Sometimes there is more than one NPC with the same seeking name, such as No Go Wan, Lon Fah Lo, and Tfat Chick. In these cases, another NPC with the same name might be targeted instead or you will not be able to see the one you want at all. It is possible to kill the other seek targets to force the one you want to be seekable, but this is often difficult. It is not possible to tell if the NPC you are looking for is alive, dead and unspawnable, or dead and spawnable when this happens.
