And the prize money has already started to roll in. Thanks to Turnerette and Pyreet for donating!

We have 105 royals!

I would like help with prizes please! Specifically: collection of prizes, keeping track of them, thanking Sponsors here, figuring the prizes out for the various categories and delivering the prizes to the winners after the event.

HALP.

Prize update!

Quotid has very generously given us 700 royals from The Illuminated Teapot. I think it is safe to say I have never handled this much money before ever and I am also waddling under the weight because money is heavy. However, I bought a special bag for the royals and my bat's lugging them around now in her spiffy new bag.

Thank you Quotid!

To all the older witches who are freaking out about my bat carrying 700 royals:

I swapped my knapsack for her bag, so she is now carrying my knapsack and I am now carrying the royals, so please don't worry any more.

Lovejoy, temporarily rich

You could make a lot of money by participating in the Witch Trials! Lots of prizes and possibly attending gifts!

The fastest more usual way to make one-time high amounts of money is probably quests. But we can't discuss those on public channels. There is more information on the wiki and in the playing menu of the mud website.

Selling items to general shops (or fencing which is more profitable but you need valueing) is a rather simple way to make money, just use 'keep' on your items to not sell them by accident.
There's items that can regularly be found in some rooms, but the leftovers from other players are likely to be a lot more plentiful.
You can 'recover corpses' in places where other players hunt, take the items and then bury the corpses again. Djelibeybi is not too big, so offers a decent chances for this.

Most jobs/missions require an investment of exp before you can do them.
Helping Pennie Laced in Ohulan Cutash might not need skills or just a bit of perception.

Responding to quizzes (with good answers) in the AM Daily gives money, but just once a month. You could also write for the newspapers to make more money!

If you want to kill things then once you get some decent skills you can make money regularly. Exp-wise it's a near infinite sink though. And if you die you need money to buy lives.

That's what comes to mind.

Trick-creation
----------

In particular, I'd like to commend Andschana's Trick Creating site.
http://www.gunde.de/discworld/witches/trick.php

And the resources with regards to creating Tricks are:

1) Goodie Whemper's Research Notes

The original manual to making Tricks and still very useful!
http://discworld.starturtle.net/lpc/guilds/witches/notes/

2) Tricks at the Discworld MUD Wiki

https://dwwiki.mooo.com/wiki/Tricks

3) Tricks at the Disc Witches Guild (accessed via WayBack Machine)

https://web.archive.org/web/20100119080328/http://witches.gwendoline.at/tricks.html

After educing your Trick, you can test your Trick at Unlucky Charlie, located in Lancre Town. Please find information on how Charlie can be utilised on the wiki.
https://dwwiki.mooo.com/wiki/Unlucky_Charlie

Fly-tos in Lancre include Burberry and Krowbarr. Charlie is at the southern end of Lancre Town square, at the end of a path near Lancre Gorge.

If anyone has questions about Tricks, feel free to ask on (Witches)!
