Doctors

From Discworld MUD Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Doctors are Very Special People who might be able to help you out with certain physical ailments, such as broken legs, arms and missing noses. There's also Igorinas and Igors that can perform similar services.

If you have a broken leg, the least painful way to reach a doctor is by direct portal, and you will be unable to cast one yourself while incapacitated.

  • Witches can, if asked nicely, splint your legs without needing a visit to a doctor.
  • Failing that, witches with portalling skills, an appropriate blorp and scrolls might be able to help you by flying to you (if outside) and casting a portal.
  • More generally, contacting a member of one of the transport clubs (such as Taxi or Limo) is another option.
  • Please note that if you are being passaged to the doctor instead of using a portal, you'll need to be following the priest and standing up (not crawling), otherwise you'll be left behind.

To have your legs set or your nose reattached, say 'please set my legs' or 'please fix my nose'.

To replace a nose lost in some kind of... unfortunate accident you can purchase a prosthetic nose at Who Nose.

Some doctors might have a medical mannequin to allow practising medical skills.

Medical mannequin

This dummy allows practising healing skills without needing new materials or wounded people.

There is one at doctor Rham-tim-phoon's place in the Flintwick building in south-east Ankh-Morpork.

To practise bandage the syntax is:

bandage {left|right} {arm|leg|foot|hand|shoulder|hip} {of|on} {mannequin|dummy}
bandage {neck|head|abdomen|back|chest|pelvis} {of|on} {mannequin|dummy}

This costs &&&&&&&&&&&&+100 A$0.25 each time and gives a chance to tm crafts.medicine.firstaid.

To practise the physical aspects of splint the syntax is:

splint {left|right} leg {of|on} {mannequin|dummy}

This costs &&&&&&&&&&&&+160 A$0.40 each time and gives a chance to tm crafts.medicine.treatment.injury.

Note that you must remove the dressings from the dummy before trying that method on that area again.

remove dressings from {mannequin|dummy}

This takes a bit of time and is spammy since it removes each bandage/splint on the dummy separately.
