Safecracking

Safecracking is an interesting hobby, and the purview of the safecrackers specilisation. The crack command is only available to thieves who have 90+ levels of covert.lockpick.safes. A set of cracking tools is needed to crack a safe. Other tools may also be required. There are different types of safes out there and they are generally hidden. Ankh-Morpork is unique in the fact that many of them are not hidden at all.

Some of the tools required include:

  • A small mirror Bligh Earcrusher's exclusive shop (North half of Park Lane, Ankh-Morpork)
  • A drill A lumberyard on Dimwell Street (South half of Dimwell street, Ankh-Morpork)
  • Rubber gloves Can be "purchased" at A Hai Kee Hai Waste Management (North end of the Street of One Thousand Water Buffalo, Bes Pelargic)
  • Crowbar A lumberyard on Dimwell Street (South half of Dimwell street, Ankh-Morpork)
  • A hefty hammer

The tumbler dial safe is one of the hardest puzzle types. Many people get stuck because they aren't correctly visualizing the device. It's essentially a master lock except with 100 ticks instead of 40. The key thing is, suppose the dial is at the number 5, and you turn the dial 1 degree clockwise -- what number is the dial at now?

Anyway, here is a set of aliases that can help to crack a tumbler dial safe.

alias dc: turn dial clockwise to
alias dcc: turn dial anticlockwise to
