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 (you will not find a list of them here as finding them is part of the puzzle). 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, drill, rubber gloves. crowbar, and a hefty hammer.

The tumbler dial safe is one of the hardest puzzle types. Many people incorrectly visualize what the locking device actually looks like. It's basically a master lock except with 100 ticks instead of 40. The key thing to understand is, say the dial is at the number 5, and you turn the dial 1 degree clockwise -- what number is the dial at now?

Here is a set of aliases that can be used to crack a tumbler dial safe.

alias dtest: turn dial clockwise to 0;frimble Tumbler Safe Cracking;turn dial counterclockwise to 20;turn dial counterclockwise to 40;frimble 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9;turn dial counterclockwise to 60;turn dial counterclockwise to 80;turn dial counterclockwise to 0
