Being heavied refers to being disciplined by the Thieves' Guild enforcers, called heavies, for unlicensed theft in Ankh-Morpork.

Why / when

This occurs if you are not a thief on quota, you are in Ankh-Morpork and you try to use any of the stealing commands: steal, shoplift, snatch, filch, crack.

It also might also happen if you are a thief and don't pay your fines for too long.

What happens

You will be automatically knocked unconscious (you cannot resist), taken down to 1 hp and 1 gp left and dumped head-first into the river. Since the Ankh river is mostly made of solids you will not sink.

  • Note that if you are infested with lice this takes 1 hp from you from time to time and might kill you if it happens at the wrong time.

In addition, all your money might be taken from you.

In addition, some or all of your inventory might be taken from you and put for sale in the heavy shop downstairs in the Thieves' Guild.

Where is your stuff / the heavy shop

Your money is gone.

The rest of your inventory, or most of it, is in the heavy shop. From the foyer it is four west, down and north.

If you are fast enough you'll have the opportunity to buy at least the majority of your equipment back through there, unless someone buys it first.
