            Introduction

Dear reader,

As a witch I don't walk much, which brings the question: 
Why make a book on speedwalking aliases?

As a witch who flies a lot, I was dismayed by the amount of walking you have to do with a non-magical/priestly guide. So to speed up things (and help walking in Bes Pelargic, which is big and has somewhat unreliable fly-to's), I started making speedwalking aliases.

So I made a set of speedwalking aliases that will bring you from one corner of Ankh-Morpork to another, without much effort.

Ankh-Morpork is an interesting case. Each place in the outer ring of the city can be reached quickly by leaving the city through a gate, walking to another gate and enter the city there again. The harder to reach places are in the inner city, which can be about 50 rooms away. Crossing the river Ankh without swimming skills requires you to use either a bridge in the terrains (which are a bit out of the way) or traverse the entire city. For these cases, the speedwalks in this book will be useful I hope!

I hope you will enjoy your newfound freedom and be able to use this useful set of aliases to bring you anywhere, without getting bored from having to walk manually each time!

Note: Speedwalking can be dangerous if you don't follow the instructions carefully. 
Any death or inconvenience caused by using those speedwalks is your own responsibility.

Happy walking!

Acer.

            Manual - General

First copy all aliases into your client.

If you then wish to go from one place to another, first check that you are exactly at the right position. Being in one other room can have deadly results if you accidentily move into a dangerous area.

Then identify your location, for instance, the location of the Assasins Guild in Ankh-Morpork is called 'conleg'. Make sure that you are in exactly the right location, in this case the northernmost room in the courtyard, 1 south of Filigree Street.

Then identify the name of your destination. The index alias will help you by giving you a list of the name of all locations, and the names of their available destinations.

Then type the name of your current place and destination without a space nor capitalization. For instance if you are at Assassins Guild, 1 room south of Filigree Street and wish to go to the Hubwards Gate, type 'assassinhub', and you will be automatically walked to your destination.

You can also type 'hubconleg' to bring you from the Hubward Gate to the Assassins Guild.

Make absolutely sure that you use the right alias, or you could be transported into a hostile place and die!

If you see the messages 'Try something else.' or 'What?', you have started at a wrong place or used a wrong alias. In that case use 'stop' as fast as possible to stop the alias and prevent going to a place where you don't want to go.

Note: The queue sometimes gets removed if it is too long. So make sure you don't use too many speedwalks in succession or you could be stranded in the terrains or in the middle of the city. (Only in extreme cases though, it happened to me when I queued 6 speedwalks which brought me from the Rimwards Gate to the Hubwards gate and back again.)

            Manual - Making your own speedwalks.

If you wish to add a connection. For instance if you want an alias from the Assasinsguild to Least Gate, you can use the default speedwalks. First check which connections you need to go from one place to another. This would be conleg->uu->least.

Then use the speedwalks between those places to make your custom alias:


  alias conlegleast conleguu;uuleast;

and the other direction

  alias leastconleg leastuu;uuconleg;


Now you will be able to use this alias to directly move you from one place to another!

            The l-space walking alias.

From the book shop at 'wizard', you can go into l-space if you wish to try to go to another library. This can be useful to reach Bes Pelargic or Genua without having to use carriages or travelling days through hostile terrains. (Days are here used literally and in roundworld time).

However to l-space is unpredictable and almost unmappable, so you can be stuck in there for a long time, randomly trying exits to find a 'gap' to another library and out of l-space. So be warned. Additionaly you might want a few skills to be able to enter l-space at each library where you can end up from l-space, to avoid getting stuck in a place.

Genua: ad.acro.tumbling 130-140 bonus, to enter the gap after pushing the crate
Djelibeybi: ad.direction around 200 bonus, to navigate the library and find the exit or gap.

This is the alias used to get in lspace in Ankh-Morpork:

-uulspace

Warning: There is not a go back alias. This alias will direct you to the gap is you start 1 south of the library. There is a change that you will enter a distortion on the way to the gap. This will bring you to l-space too, but you have a lower chance to immediatly find a gap out of l-space again.
