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, drill, rubber gloves. crowbar, and 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
alias dtest: dc 0;frimble Tumbler Safe Cracking;dcc 20;dcc 40;frimble 0   1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   0   1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9;dcc 60;dcc 80;dcc 0
alias dtry: dc $1$;dcc $2$;dc $3$;dcc $1$;dc $2$;dcc $3$;dc $1$;dcc $3$;dc $2$;dcc $1$;dc $3$;dcc $2$;dc $1$;open safe

The following is a list of known safe locations. Only general locations are provided, not specific instructions. It may still be difficult to locate the actual safe.

The covert.lockpick.safes bonus required to crack the safe is also given, if known. Note: in some cases, this is not the only skill required!

Lastly, it's a certainty that many safes have not yet been discovered. If you believe you've found one that is unrecorded, please contribute!
