Ohulan Cutash is a thriving market town, situated near to the border of the Sto Plains with the Ramtops.

Situation

Some distance to the west of Ohulan Cutash is Gloomy Forest, while close to the northeast is the Hunter's camp and not too far to the east is the Lancre customs troll's bridge leading to Lancre kingdom, near Mad Stoat.

Language and currency

The language in Ohulan Cutash is Morporkian (with an Ohulan accent). The local currency is the Lancre crown.

Politics

Currently no player council governs Ohulan Cutash, or regulates its player houses and shops.

Crime and Punishment

The following actions are crimes in Ohulan Cutash:

  • Attacking any shopkeeper.
  • Being caught stealing from a shop.
  • Killing the lost-looking cartographer.

Once a player has been detected as having committed a crime, all shopkeepers will refuse to sell to them. Players can clear their record by going to the jail south from the SE corner of the market square, and serving time (half an hour in Discworld time) for their crimes. Alternately, they can be bailed for the sum of 5 crowns.

While not precisely a "crime", if a player tries to attack Miss Pennie Laced, they will be struck by confusion and wander around for several minutes uncontrollably.
