Ankh-Morpork Post Office by Quow
This page is about a source of missions / jobs.

Dead letter office jobs will have you acting as an unofficial postal employee for the Ankh-Morpork Post Office, delivering letters to citizens near and far (at your discretion).


  • Times listed with DW (Discworld) units above are in Roundworld minutes, times listed with RW (RoundWorld) units use earth conventional times. (See options output temporal_reality)
  • The money you receive as payment is usually in the currency used in the location where the recipient happens to be when the letter is delivered.
  • If you don't want to deliver the letter Frank gave to you, give it back to him; however, you will need to wait ten Roundworld minutes before you can attempt another delivery.
  • If you lose the letter and would like to get another without waiting for the delivery time to expire, tell Frank that you would like to quit. You will still need to wait the ten Roundworld minutes before he will give you another one.
  • You cannot deliver while it is too dark for you to see the recipient.
  • If you find a letter another player has dropped or fumbled, you can return it to Frank who will tell you who it was given to. This does not make the letter available for other players if it has not expired yet. You may want to check the expiry before returning and tell the player if this is the case so that they can quit manually as above.

The Job

To see what the kind of letters there are, you can check pigeonholes for a brief list. One can also read pigeonholes for a verbose listing, though it provides no additional information.

You can pick a type of letter from those listed on the pigeonholes to offer to deliver <letter code>, ex. offer to deliver dlc

When the addressee is found, you can deliver letter to <npc>.


When you take on a mission to deliver a letter with a vague address, or only the city, you can inquire after addressee to find out more information. This is a skill check that uses the relevant people.culture skill for the area.

Mission Bonus for odds of success
Range ~ 0% ~ 50% Nearly always
Vague address 150 ? 193
Only the city <202 ? 239
  • Inquiring will tell you the type of npc (actor, monk, etc.) if the letter is not clear on that.
  • The appropriate npcs have the distinctive traits at the end of their description when you look at them.
  • The range to get bearing on the target is around 12-20 rooms away.
  • Most of the time the direction given will be (pure) south if you're not more than 2 east or west from the destination. It seems likely that rooms with opposite directions (say you need to go north and then later south to reach the target) cancel each other.
  • Paths to the target in a straight line with no intersections seem to extend the range somewhat.
  • The furthest range categories are often considerably shorter than the number of rooms in the table. This might be because of some kind of neighbourhood limits.
Message: that your target Meaning
isn't in the neighbourhood Beyond detection
was spotted in the <direction> a while back 12 to 16+ rooms away
was spotted in the <direction> not too long ago 9-15 rooms away
was spotted in the <direction> recently 3-8 rooms away
was spotted very close by not a moment ago 0-2 rooms away
met a brutal end Target dead
You find the language barrier to be insurmountable You need to speak <appropriate language> for the area

Vague address is easier in several ways:

  • An intersection is indicated.
  • If you are further away than ~17 rooms from the intersection inquire just says you are too far. (This might be fixed neighbourhood boundaries.)
  • The bonus needed is lower than for letters with only the city.


The address of the letters with terrible handwriting has been quite obfuscated.

  • They can be deciphered with the command decipher handwriting on letter.
  • This is a skill check that uses crafts.arts.calligraphy, with a bonus somewhere greater than ~200 or so, and costs 40 GP.

DLI: Difficult customer

Difficult customers generally attack on sight or are very hard to reach.

Letters are limited, probably a maximum of 3-5 letters (possibly only 2) can be in circulation at any point. This means that if you log out with a letter, that's less one letter that can be delivered. If you got your hands on a letter and the target is dead, while it's entirely up to you, it might be better to hand it right back to Frank and wait that 10 minutes to get another letter rather than holding it till the NPC spawn. Certain NPCs like the smuggler captain or Triad Boss are almost always dead due to being hotspots. Please don't log out with difficult letters. You're making it hard for other fellow letter couriers.
