My user page is reserved for research before adding it to the public pages.

I'm currently active on the MUD as Hops, if you want to ask me anything ingame!

There are spoilers on safecracking here. Ye be warned.


Note: Aliases with arguments are a HUGE timesaver for safecraking. If you're thinking about getting into safecracking, figure out your aliases asap.

Extra Tools:

Safecracking tools: Needed to see how to open the safe

Crowbar: Various

Drill: AM Lumber Yard

Rubber Gloves: "A shop in BP".


Dial minigame:

You'll be given 6 dials (1-6) with 6 positions (0-5). You have 12 tries to get the correct sequence of numbers.


dial x to y (move the dial x to position y)

inspect panel (show all dials and positions)

press button (validate try)

Grid minigame:

You have a grid with 9 tile, and 8 letters in the grid. You can slide the letters around like the classic game 8-puzzle. You need to connect one of 5 different wires to the right letter in the right tile. Each try will give you information about either the wire, the tile, or the letter. You cannot attempt to check the same tile or wire twice without shuffling the grid a bit.


slide <letter> (switch the empty tile with the adjacent letter)

connect <colour> to <letter> (attempt a colour/tile/letter combination)

inspect panel (show grid)

Outstanding bugs:

Psuedopolis Yard's two safes are buggy. Ground floor doesn't count in quota, Vimes' office gets you jail time even if nobody is around. 30 mins jail time for attempting to crack it a number of times after getting Vimes to despawn.

Garlic Grove has a chest to pick.
