Discworld Bestiary

From Discworld MUD Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The bestiary documents all the critters, beasties, and Things-With-Teeth upon the Disc which are trying their utmost to kill you. For some reason, these selfish creatures do not wish to submit to the player who merely desires to hock their beautiful furs to the Mad Wolf furrier for a few shillings or pluck their feathers for use in a spell component. Okay, a few may be mildly peckish, and others just wish to trample you to dirt-colored jelly, but they are in the minority. Do not take it personally.

Not included are specific NPC critters, such as "Su Su the Peacock", encountered during quests, missions, and so forth.

Where there may be several types of an animal, they have been lumped under one creature name (for instance, pigs, hogs, and boar are all "swine"). Follow a link to learn more about a critter.

See beastiary map locations for the Disc locations used by the bestiary.

See also the list of NPC Alignments for alignment, aggressiveness and pursue information of many npcs.
