Ankh-Morpork quests

"Bored Of The Ring", in which you reunited a dwarf and his precious. (Quest level 2)

First find the LAG.  If you shout "lag" in Ankh-Morpork (and the LAG is alive) it shouts back, showing you what direction it is in. Kill the LAG or otherwise acquire its ring. Killing it can be pretty damned hard, but you don't have to kill it yourself so long as you get the ring.  Find Prodo Laggins wandering around AM and give him the ring.


"Demon Friend", in which you were tricked by hungry demons. (Quest level 5)

First, gather the following items:

A sea shell found by searching inside the conch shop on Cockbill Street.
A cauldron, found by searching inside the house east of Rimward Gate, after getting rid of the lady inhabiting it.
The black frisbee for sale in the T-shop or from the Foreign Ambassadors' Reception in Djelibeybi.
A crystal ladle, for sale in the general shop on Vagabond Street.
A giant coin, which is in fact the table in the money changers on the Street of Bookkeepers (This is heavy, if you cannot pick it up, drag it).
A strange angler fish, found by searching outside the Fishermen's Guild (This will decay so it's worth getting it last, along with the toadstools).
Four large toadstools, found growing on the Tump (This will decay so it's worth getting it last, along with the angler fish).

The cauldron must be filled with water from the Ankh, either by entering the liquid parts of the river within the city, or by digging in the solid parts of it with a shovel and filling it with the water that bubbles up.

Take all of the items into the room outside of the Least Gate (Eastern most Ankh gate) that mentions a clearing, drop them all except the shell, then "blow" into the shell.


"Doppleganger", in which you recognised locals from afar. (Quest level 4)

There are unique, named NPCs wandering around AM that have names that are current or former creator names in reverse.  Say the creator name (usually the reversed name of the NPC) in the same room with them - e.g. for Mota 'say atom'.  Presto's NPC is Notserp (but say Presto). It might not be required to find all of them.

The doppelgängers are: Adnew, Alab Nad, Analla, Anarual, Ahtued, Dyffat, Eki Rhs, Endaira, Enim Rac, Euq, Eur, Hsif K'nip, Ilik, Kelsej, Mota, Nacirrut, Naiu Q Sad, Nadow, Nmad'ho, Notserp (in his case, the name you need to say is "Presto"), Nyvven, Repurg, Retlobgod, Sebboh, Serec, Sokkard, Sssld, Suoiruc, Y Llit.

The required subset for the quest is likely Adnew, Anarual, Endaira, Euq, Eur, Hsif K'nip, Kelsej, Mota, Nacirrut, Nmad'ho, Notserp/Presto and Nyvven - that is, the original twelve quest dopples, before Dogbolter started expanding them in the early '00s.

Go to the import emporium on the northwest end of Park Lane and knock on the door, then just say your name when someone asks for it.


"Saboteur's Tool", in which you engaged in an act of corporate sabotage. (Quest level 2)

You need to give a rat farming tool to Noelle at the Kart Kill Kafe (intersection of Dock Road and The Soake).
The rat tool can be found by exploring the rat farm a little way up The Soake, see Rat_Farm#Entry for how to reach it.

The chest containing the tool will be locked, but the key can also be found in the farm, see Rat_Farm#Chests for how to get keys.
NOTE: There are multiple rats per room and they auto-attack together. Nasty things.



Morpork quests

"Bar Brawl Champion", in which you defeated the Mended Drum's splatter in not so single combat. (Quest level 2)

Go to the Mended Drum on the north end of Short street and start fighting splatter.  If he dies while still in combat with you (even if you're not in the room), you'll get the quest.


Eastern Morpork quests

"Apprentice Baker", in which you helped a baker keep up with demand. (Quest level 6)

Skills: 100 crafts.culinary.baking bonus absolute minimum to ever succeed.
You need: 10+ dried frog powder (apothecary on Prouts just north of Apothecary Gardens)
Go to Argle's bakery on the south end of Baker Street and "apply for a job".  Argle will list possible values for each of a couple ingredients twice, but you can get more possible values by saying "instructions" a few times. Go south into the kitchen.  Write down those values he listed (usually 3 or 4 scoops flour, 1 or 2 pourings of water, 1 or 2 pinches of salt, variable amount of goo, and always just 1 pinch dried frog).  The commands are:
scoop flour into stove
pour water from sink into stove (you may need to "pump water into sink" first)
pour goo into stove
sprinkle salt in stove
place frog in stove
pull lever on stove


"Courteous Visitor", in which you received a reward for asking nicely. (Quest level 1)

Go to the Hall of Heroes in the Apex club on the south end of Esoteric Street and say "please, Miss Turrel, may I please have a ticket to the hall of heroes please" to get a free ticket.


"Deputy Deliverer", in which you saved Ankh-Morpork from a horrible draught. (Quest level 1)

Go to the wine lounge in the Flaming Cabbage on Blood Alley. Claire A. Botel shows up there regularly to make her deliveries.  Occasionally she'll miss a barrel and need some help with that.  Say something like "I'll help you deliver the barrel" and she will give you a wine voucher.
Go find Boare in the Wine Warehouse on Prouts, and give him the voucher. He'll give you a barrel of wine, which you need to take back to the Flaming Cabbage and "deliver" in the wine lounge.



"Distant Exhibitionist", in which you went the distance of displaying feelings. (Quest level 2)

You have to have done the SENTIMENTALIST quest first.  Go to the Temple of Small Gods, then go east from the fountain all the way, then south to Florette the bunny rabbit. Go southwest from there and "gather carrot" until you get a carrot. Go back to Florette, "feed" her the carrot, "pet" her, and say "Florette is a good girl!"


"Dog Gone Emancipator", in which you found a shocking way to kill a foul torturer. (Quest level 1)

Skills: Decent combat and/or healing abilities (this poodle can kill n00bs)
Go the house south off of God Street with a poodle in the living room.  Kill the poodle, take the corpse upstairs, and "give" the corpse to Bertha.  I think the husband gives you some money after Bertha dies, so stick around a bit.


"Down to Earth", in which you brought'em up to get'im down. (Quest level 1)

Items: a few beers
Go to the Salt Shaker on the southeast end of Upper Broadway, next door to the pepper pot.  Go upstairs all the way, the "climb" or "enter" hole to get onto the roof.  A simple "up" command also works even though this is not an obvious exit.  Give the beers to the dwarf up there, on at a time, until he leaves.


"Expert Balancer", in which you discovered how to weigh things using powers of three. (Quest level 4)

Go to the Post Office on Widdershins Broadway. "figure" to start the quest, which will cause a coloured weight to be moved to the left pan.  Here's my system:
1. move very large weight from middle pan to right pan
if right pan dips down: move very large weight to middle pan
2. move large weight to right pan
if right pan dips down:  move large weight to middle pan
3. move medium weight to right pan
if right pan dips down: move medium weight to middle pan
4. move small weight to right pan
if right pan dips down: move small weight to middle pan
5. move very small weight to right pan
if right pan dips down: move very small weight to middle pan
However, at this point you might have several weights on the right pan, and the left pan is still hanging lower.  Take note of the biggest weight you have on the right pan, and move the next bigger weight to the right pan as well.  Take what is now your second-largest weight that's in the right pan and move it to the left pan.  If the left pan tips lower, move that same weight to the middle pan.  If the left pan is still lower, move it back to the right pan.  Repeat with each next smaller weight, one a time, until you find out the weight.  "figure" and balance two more times to get the quest.


"Explorer Extraordinaire", in which you discovered a whole new area. (Quest level 2)

Reqs: Completion of the Keen Observer quest, and greater than 200 bonus for ad.perception is needed: minimum levels require further research.

Locate the underground areas below the Dolly Sisters Watch House. From the dusty attic where you end up after, move the bed. You need to pass a perception skill (min level?) check in order to move it. Take a look at the helmets, pushing them over. This brings you down into the underground where there is no way out other than completing the quest. Go to the far end of the underground corridor to a large hall with a deep hole with copper bar in it. Hold on to the bar tight (if it's not tight you'll fall off!), and jump down the hole. Jumping down the hole without holding on tight is rather painful (ca 1500 hp loss). If you are holding on tight, you'll slide down the bar and get the quest.



"Finder Not Keeper", in which you was honest with others' property. (Quest level 3)

You need to find 10 items registered by another player with the Lost Property Office on the Street of Cunning Artificers, and turn them in at the same location.  With the relaxed multiplaying rules, you can probably use an alt to help you out if you can't find a friend to do it.

"Lost" items are also sold at certain player shops in their quest categories and you have to deposit an item one by one if you have a collection of lost items


"Fish Fingered", in which you gave a friend a fishy face. (Quest level 3)

Buy a LARGE fish from the fish shop on Street of Cunning Artificers. Find Carrot wandering around AM and "slap" him with the fish. You'll get some jail time.

He may try to arrest you afterwards, so if you don't want to fight him you should "give up".


Items: 31 Buy 31 flowers at Bernitas Flower Shop on Treacle Street. You don't need to send them to anyone or add a note to them.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Future Diviner", in which you received a glimpse of future events. (Quest level 1) Go to the pier on the south side of Zoo Park and "search planks". You should find a Caroc Card. Go to the south side of Unreal Estate and into a hut there. Go south until you're in the room with the fortune teller, and give her the card.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Gatherer of Fluff", in which you supplied a considerable quantity of fluffy material. (Quest level 4) Put fluffy things on Gufnork's low altar on the Street of Small Gods. You need either a total weight of fluffy things or a total value of fluffy things. Probably weight. The fastest way to do this is with fluffy cloaks. Fluffy towels also work, and the priestess in the Gufnork temple usually has one or two fluffy items on her, and frequently gets killed by Kess so there might be stuff lying around the temple. If all else fails, find a friend with the "summon fluff" ritual. (see Research)  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Gemmy's Mate", in which you fetched a simple tool for a nice old man. (Quest level 1) Items: a shoe horn from the odds and ends store on the east side of Plaza of Broken Moons Go to the shed on the south side of Widdershins Broadway, and wait for Codger to show up. Give him the shoe horn.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Green Tongue", in which you broke a witch's spell. (Quest level 2) Look for a wandering green frog in AM and kiss it. It's often near Dragon's Landing.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Handyman", in which you gave a lady a new outlook. (Quest level 2) On God street theres a large house with Sophie Stibbons upstairs. Go down, search the fireplace a room will be revealed and go west. In this room there’s a tin of rust removal, get it and go back to Stibbons. "repair" the taps, then "turn" them to get water and finally you must dampen the cloth you were given and clean the window 'clean window'. Rinse and repeat a few times until the window is clean.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Handyperson", in which you disproved a long standing myth. (Quest level 1) Items: oil can from odds and ends store on east side of Plaza of Broken Moons Go just inside the Assassins' Guild courtyard and "oil" the hinges.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Hearts Tendered", in which you journeyed to the heart of sacrifice. (Quest level 4) Put 250 human hearts on the low altar in the southeast corner of the Sek Temple on Street of Small Gods. They decay rather quickly, so go back to the altar once they stop looking fresh. It doesn't matter if you do them one at a time or in groups.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Keen Observer", in which you saw something overlooked by most. (Quest level 1) Search the desk in the prison area of the Dolly Sisters watch house to acquire a doorknob. Go upstairs to the room with Lance-Constable Cryolite and go east.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Knowledge Seeker", in which you joined a secret brotherhood. (Quest level 1) Outside of Rendtnor's jewellery shop on the northeast side of Plaza of the Broken Moons, "search" until you find a shifty person (you don't need any skills to find her), who will give you a stone medallion. Wear the medallion and go inside the house on Bitwash Street and say "only when it hunts", then go south when the door unlocks. There's a scrying room you can use within for a small fee.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Maintainer of the Balance", in which you visited justice to the extremes. (Quest level 4) Items: A light source Skills: Decent fighting skills Go to the centre of Sandelfon's Temple off the north end of Street of Small Gods. In the room with the high alter go "down" to enter the maze. Wander around for a while and keep an eye out for persons and similar creators. Kill them, and when they die they'll turn into a crystal. You'll need 5 crystals, of any colour. To get back out, always choose the last exit listed in the room until you get to the "up" exit, and go back up there. Go to the low altar in the Sandelfon Temple, and put the crystals on it. Putting the crystals on the altar -might- change your alignment. research If this has been marked on a page, it's because there was something that probably isn't known, that the person who edited the page thinks could be found out. Perhaps you could figure this thing out, and be famous evermore. (see Research)  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Natty Dresser", in which you paid fair and square for sartorial repairs. (Quest level 4) Put damaged clothing on Gapp's low altar in his temple on Street of Small Gods. Getting the quest is probably based on the amount of GP you spend, not the number of items. A good way to get damaged clothing is by looting corpses or searching.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Pigeon Fancier", in which you fancied some pigeons. (Quest level 2) Grab a shovel (the Job Market's shop sells them) and some food (like a bread roll from Baker Street). Go up to the roof of the main post office at God and Widdershins, and all the way to the pigeon hut. You'll need minimal fighting.melee.misc - a 68 bonus works. If you fail this skillcheck, you'll lose about 100hp, so take care. Hold the shovel, "scrape guano with shovel", pet the pigeon, then feed the food to the pigeon.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Plumber's Mate", in which you brought some ancient machinery back to life. (Quest level 4) Items: #5 brush from Plumber's Guild on Pleader's Row Items: oil can from odds and ends shop on the east end of the Plaza of Broken Moons Items: orange tablet (Drayne Cleaner) from the Alchemists' Guild Shop on Street of Alchemists Items: stuff that has weight (rocks are available "get cobble" from room above) Go into the hole on the east end of Sator Square (see CITY EXPLORER quest) with the above items, and do the following: 1) "unclog" the holes in the trough (clean trough using brush) 2) "charge" the trough with the oil 3) "clean" the counterweight with the orange tablet (dissolve tablet in counterweight) 4) put items on the pannier There are two panniers, and looking at the machinery or some such should indicate how low they can dip before they empty. Look at the panniers frequently to see if either is getting to low. If it is, take some weight off of that pannier or put a weight on the other pannier. If you keep the panniers balanced well enough to fill the buckets quite a bit, when they empty they'll flush out some clog and you get the quest. You can "look balance" to see how level the counterweight and reservoir are, if they're within a couple of inches then do nothing, wait for some more water to flow, then look again. For smaller adjustments use the fungus on the floor rather than cobbles. Note that the output from "look balance" lists the panniers in reverse-order, the reservoir is the left pannier.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Proficient Horticulturalist", in which you grew a very special flower for a nameless man. (Quest level 4) First you need to find the Rose Seller. This is easiest during the day time when he's at his house on the northwest end of Washer Way. At night he wanders around selling roses at taverns and restaurants. Say something about "special roses" and he'll give you some seeds. You may want to say it again to get more seeds now, instead of tracking him down later. Go to the greenhouse attached to his house and "search" the boxes repeatedly until it says there's no interesting packets left. Keep the packets in the room (don't bury). The colour of fertiliser you need depends on the fullness of the rose he wants. The effect of the fertiliser on the fullness (very single, single, semi-double, double, very double, extreme double) changes with every person. The colours are Black, Brown, Green, Grey, Ochre and Yellow. The texture of the fertiliser determines how thorny (unarmed, somewhat thorny, thorny, quite thorny, very thorny, armed, viciously thorny), however which texture produces which thorns is also random for each person doing the quest. The textures are Coarse, Fine, Glittery, Grainy, Powdery, Rough and Soft. "Plant" the seed in a pot, then "fertilise my planted rose" with the appropriate colour of fertiliser, then "fill" the watering can from the tap and "water my planted rose". After being watered, it takes about 5 minutes (RW) to see what type of rose has grown. Look at the pot periodically and eventually the rose will grow and it won't say that it's recently been watered, meaning it's time to water again, depending on the rose size you need. Each watering will make the rose grow bigger. If it's got the wrong fullness or amount of thorns, pluck it ("pluck my rose") and start again with a different fertiliser colour or texture. There are 6 colours but 7 texture options that can be every combination for the fertiliser. When it's the right size, "pluck" your rose and give it to the rose seller. It will probably take quite a few visits to find the right texture, hence the extra seeds will probably be needed. Keep searching intermittently when you can.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Public Informer", in which you found a way to get the message across. (Quest level 2) Items:50
Go to the town cryer's office on the southwest end of Turnwise Broadway and go into the next room.  Fund 50 days worth of messages. Funding your own message costs $1/day and another player's messages costs$2/day. Spending 50 dollars on another players' message does not give the quest, but 25 days on another player's message and 25 days on your own message appears to work. The cheapest way to complete the quest is to fund your own message for 50 days.


"Sentimentalist", in which you demonstrated a little control over expression. (Quest level 1)

Go to Roger on north side of the corridor inside the Patrician's Palace on Turnwise Broadway.  When prompted, "lsay merus in pectum et in aquama", and "bing excitedly roger".  This will give you the "emote" command.




"Valued Customer", in which you were a faithful customer of a jeweller's. (Quest level 2)

Items: $25-$30
Go to Rendtnor's jewellery shop on the northeast side of Plaza of Broken Moons and spend $25 or more on jewellery. I think you then get a discount when repairing jewellery there, but it isn't free any more.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Very, Very Lucky", in which you had incredible luck and beat the odds. (Quest level 3) Go to the Musicians' Guild on Baker Street and ask Loz Lipton about his plectrum/if he needs help. He will describe a plectrum color and design. Go north, west, and "search carpet" every half hour or so until you find the right plectrum and feel very lucky. Give the plectrum to Loz.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Warming Savior", in which you saved someone from an almost certain icy death. (Quest level 2) Go to the Butchers' Guild off the Street of Alchemists opposite the Thieves Guild and enter the room with the locked door in the northwest wall. "Lift lever" and have the other guy go northwest into the freezer while you wait outside. When the latch falls after a bit, lift the lever to release the other guy. WARNING: the person in the freezer can die if left inside a long time. This appears to take about 18 minutes. You can also use npcs like a fruitbat or a sheep shearer instead of asking a player.  ^ Return to the table of contents. Alchemists' Guild quests "Cadaver Corroder", in which you burned the life back in. (Quest level 4) Items: lemons, a few at a time or pickle them (fruit shop on baker street, colourful stall on Market Street, fruit stall in Djelibeybi bazaar, fruit store on Garlic Street in Djelibeybi) Items: rat corpses (search streets, plenty on sold part of Ankh River, or kill a few at a time in Rattigan's house on Contact Walk, or the Pepper Pot located near the intersection of Upper Broadway and Endless Street) The first thing to do is go to the Alchemists' Guild on Street of Alchemists. On the first floor above ground level is a classroom with Bradley Weiss in it. Say "regurgitator" to get instructions and then say "learn" to start listing the acid you need, then "search shelves" repeatedly, but don't go AFK or anything because cockroaches sometimes crawl out of the shelves and into your ears. Ugh. You can dodge them, but if they find their way into your ears, "shake" a few times and kill the roaches before they crawl back in. You can dodge them at around 300 dodge bonus. You also might get hit with spilled acid when you search, but you can dodge this with decent bonus. It is recommended to buy some newbie healing tea, etc to handle the spilled acid which damages you over time. As well, if you forget what colour of acid you need to search for, just say "acid" for Bradley to remind you. Keep searching until you basically have vials or bottles filled with acids (you can open bottles or open vials and then look bottles and look vials to see if they contain acid and what colour it is) that are at least 10 different colours. Store them in a useful pack or satchel, then go get a few lemons and rat corpses from a source listed above. For the first few attempts, Bradley will tell you to use specific acid colours, so do as he says. They won't succeed of course, but you have to go through the motions for this quest. The commands are: attach corpse to harness attach lemon to apparatus pour vial into dish flick switch After doing the acids Bradley lists, you'll need to do another five or so to get the quest. At some point in the process, a giant rat dog might appear, and either try to eat you or become your pet. Oookay.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Corn Popper", in which you helped a student ruin his future career. (Quest level 4) Items: glass of milk (from the Mended Drum bar or drink shop on Attic Bee - be sure to get it from the counter) Items: 2-3 cobs of corn (fruit shop on Baker street, fruit and vegetables store on Elm street - scrape off the kernels) Items: vial or bottle of Better Butter Base (searching the shelves in Bradley's classroom) Go to the room in the Alchemists' Guild on Street of Alchemists that has a Buttery machine in it. "pour" the glass of milk into the buttery, "pour" the vial or bottle of butter base into the buttery, then "turn" the handle on the buttery. Get the butter from the butter. Put the butter and all of the corn kernels into the Banger, and CLOSE IT. "light" the fuse on the banger, then open it and get the grains from the banger. Find Neelie Awkside, usually on Street of Alchemists or nearby, and give him the banged grains (remember to type give grains to Neelie or give banged grains to Neelie, just typing give bag to Neelie won't work). He requires a certain amount all at once, so be sure you're doing at least 2 cobs worth of corn, 3 if possible.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Midas In Reverse", in which you turned gold into gold, more or less. (Quest level 4) Items: AM$100-200
Look for Scrooge on the second floor in the Alchemists' Guild on the Street of Alchemists.  Say "yes" and he'll tell you to fetch several ingredients:
1) chalk (white pebble - available in Alchemists Guild shop)
2) slate (grey pebble) available from the troll vendor on Quarry Lane
3) cinnabar (red pebble) available from the troll vendor on Quarry Lane
4) flint, available from rock shop on Qarry Lane as a black mineral rock or the wood shed to the east and a little to the south of the rock shop as a flint stone
5) an ore, available from the shop on the ground floor of the Alchemists' Guild
6) an acid, available from the shelves one floor down in Bradley's classroom.  He won't say the acid colour, but call it by its proper name.  So you need to go to the library nearby in the Guild and "research" until you find a scrap of paper that indicates the acid colour for that substance.  If he asks for nitrate, you'll need bat guano from a pooping fruitbat, and batsup from the acid shelves.  Then use the nitrolator in the Guild to form nitrate out of them.
7) a vial of something available by searching the storage closet nearby in the Guild
8) Various amounts of gold coins, either Rhinu or from a money changer.  This might be $100-$200 worth, taking exchange rates into account.

Give him each item as he asks for it, to get him to ask for the next.  After giving him the gold, he'll either turn it into more gold or platinum coins, or give you fewer coins than you gave him.


"Slimy Saviour", in which you went on a slimy adventure. (Quest level 2)

Skills: ad.perception <137 (the command "watch high" can give you a little boost)
Lerd Ors in the Coin Pitt has lost a rare coin from his collection and wants you to help look for it.  From outside the Coin Pitt, head southeast then south to an abandoned house and then down to enter the cellar.  In the cellar, "search pool" will yield a slimy coin (if you don't find the coin, your perception is too low). The coin must then be cleaned using a cleaning tray from Coin Corner and some acid which can be found by searching various shelves in the Alchemist's Guild ("pour vial into tray", "clean slimy coin with tray"). When the coin is cleaned, it can be returned to Lerd Ors.


"True Alchemist", in which you went out with a bang. (Quest level 6)

Official info:
"Go to the laboratory on the top floor of the Alchemists' Guild, in the room with the amalgamator and Two-Fingers McKluskey. Pull six levers, then push the button to start a chemical reaction. Pay attention to the results to determine how close your combination of chemicals is to what is required to blow up the guild. A bigger explosion means you have more chemicals in the proper order relative to each other. The quantities that are dispensed by one pull of a lever isn’t enough to cause a reaction by itself, but that might change with larger quantities. Any chemicals that don't react with their current neighbours during a reaction may cause adverse side effects. To find out which effects are produced by which chemicals, research in the Alchemists' Guild library. Each chemical only reacts with the chemicals immediately above or below it, hence order of chemicals relative to each other is essential. Multiple explosions can also result, when appropriate."

Walkthrough:

Go the room with the Central Amalgamator up two flights of stairs in the Alchemists' Guild.  The combination is reset every time the building explodes, and no one gets their own unique combo. So 2 people working on it at the same time are working toward the same combo.  The combination doesn't seem to reset if the building explodes of its own accord.

So, 10 levers in the room, 6 levers must be pulled with each attempt. Every time you pull 6 levers then hit the big button, you will get two types of results. The first is one or more explosions (or lack thereof) of chemicals in the right order relative to each other, and the second is the side effect from a random chemical that did not react.

The side effects are annoying and slow things, especially the blinding and hallucinating effects, which make you pull random levers. Do not trust any results while under these conditions, best to wait them out.

You can leave the room before side effects appear, but Two-fingers McKluskey (NPC who configures the machine) can't, and he'll get damaged. It's possible that he can die, so watch his health and heal him as needed. To minimize damage and delay, don't wear clothes if possible (one of the effects mimics the Searing Touch ritual) and bring healing wand (you can heal McKluskey) and/or healing tea.  If you're quick, and leave the room before or immediately after the text that shows the side effect, you can avoid getting hit by it.

Lever 1: shiny blue powder - Headache Mist (get a migraine)
Lever 2: fluorescent lime powder - Nauseating Light (vomiting/farting)
Lever 3: silver metallic powder - Blinds You (*you will pull random levers while blind*)
Lever 4: pitch black powder - Colourful (people turn colourful)
Lever 5: bone white powder - Invisibility (people turn invisible)
Lever 6: diarrhoea brown powder - Squeaky (like eating guano)
Lever 7: blood red powder - Fire Belch (items of clothing smoulder like Searing Touch)
Lever 8: bright puce powder - Hypnotic colours/hallucinate (*you pull random levers*)
Lever 9: dull orange powder - Chemicals Ignite (doesn't really do anything)
Lever 10: glowing yellow powder - Poisonous Gas (room fills with damage-inflicting gas for a while)

The little explosions tell you how many chemicals you have in the right order, and if you have more than 1 set of chemicals in the right order. The explosion messages are:

No combination of chemicals are in the right order:
A small puff of smoke comes from the ingredients in the central cylinder. The watching students laugh at you.

One pair of chemicals in the right order:
There is a brief low-level flash and a few puffs of smoke from the ingredients in the cylinder.
The students snigger at you.

One triplet of chemicals in the right order:
There is a small flash of light and a small cloud of smoke rises from the ingredients in the cylinder.
The students look as if they are about to run, but then merely look nonchalant as they realise nothing is going to happen.

One quadruplet of chemicals in the right order:
There is a small flash of light and a small cloud of smoke rises from the ingredients in the cylinder.
You and everyone else in the room are knocked over onto the floor.

One quintuplet of chemicals in the right order:
Suddenly there is a huge bang, and a shockwave of noise from the chamber, causing many of the rivets to fire off with a loud 'PING!'.
A couple of students who were standing too close hold their heads in pain as blood streams from their ears.
This makes everyone "shocked and confused", as with a backstab, with stat penalties.

All chemicals in the right order: BOOM!
The whole lab begins to rumble ominously, causing the students to flee immediately.
There is an enormous explosion as one of the vats blows up in a shower of deadly shrapnel, which is quite unfortunate for those brave students who did not choose to run.

Don't leave the room on success. You'll end up on top of the Tower of Art with a diamond, a lump of gold, and a broken leg.  (If you're carrying enough things, the addition of the diamond, lump of gold, and Creator Collector Card in your inventory can cause you to fumble things in midair and lose them.)

Damage when succeeding seems to be a percentage of your total hit points.  If you aren't damaged when you get the right combination, you won't die.

There can be multiple reactions per combination. If we had the target combination of 147784 for example, the following attempts would give the following results:
141414 - 3 pairs
747877 - 2 pairs
877777 - 1 triplet
877141 - 1 triplet and 1 pair
487741 - Quest accomplished

So chemicals usually don't have to be in the same order or in the same position (2nd from left, etc) to get a reaction, they just have to be in the right order relative to each other. However, it seems that occasionally they will need to be in a specific order to get the full reaction--trying a known pair at the beginning of the combination, followed by every possible option may yield only pair reactions, while trying the same pair at the end of the combination reveals the triplet. I.E.:
561111 - 1 pair
...
569999 - 1 pair
560000 - 1 pair
651111 - 1 pair
...
659999 - 1 pair
650000 - 1 pair
999965 - 1 triplet
597965 - Quest accomplished
(Actual example.)

I like the following system to find pairs (10 written as 0):
112233
445566
778899
001314
151617
181920
242526
272829
313435
363738
394041
etc

So after each combo, you jot down the results, and if there was a pair, you immediately try to find a third chemical adjacent to the pair. So if you try 112233 and immediately get the pair reaction, you can then narrow down which 2 numbers were the pair by trying 111111 222222 333333 121212 232323 until one reacts as a pair again. Except it should react as 3 pairs because you're repeating the correct pair 3 times.

So if 121212 shows three pairs, you know 12 (or 21) is in the target combination somewhere. Then you try to find the number(s) adjacent to 12. If 12 is at the beginning or end of the target combination, there will be only one adjacent number, otherwise there are two. So now you want to try 12 in combination with other numbers, such as:
331233
441244
551255
etc

Then when you get a triplet, such as from 332133, you test whether the 3 is next to the 2 or the 1:
321111
312222

So if 312222 gives the triplet, we know the triplet is 312, not 321. We then repeat the same process, now with the 312 triplet adjacent to other numbers, and so on.

This system should get the target combination in 15-30 minutes, depending on how lucky you are with side effects and the early combinations you try.


Western Morpork quests

"Accomplice", in which you were an accomplice in a burglary. (Quest level 2)

Items: 1 large satchel (shop on Ettercap Street, wandering AM wizards, wandering travellers on sto plains roads, bag shop in Djelibeybi)
In one of the houses on the western part of Elm Street there is a cat burglar busy stealing stuff but he needs a bigger bag to hold it. Give him the large satchel.


"Apprentice Campanologist", in which you made the bells ring out over the city. (Quest level 3)

Skills: 100-115 minimum adventuring.movement.climbing.rope bonus, 100-125 minimum adventuring.acrobatics.balancing bonus.
Items: Tin of rust remover (see HANDYMAN quest)
Go inside the bell tower north from Five-Ways (intersection) in southwest AM.  "climb rope" in one of the rooms to get onto the beam, then go northeast.  You might see Hugo there if he hasn't fallen off.  Go to the part of the beam with the bell and "repair bell with tin" then "ring bell".  You might lose your balance a few times, so just heal up and try again until you get lucky. I think you need the basic guild-taught levels in vaulting to get handhold on the rope, kept failing with ad.mo.cl.rope bonus way above 115 until i advanced it.


Find Sacharissa wandering around AM.  Say 'help' to her and she will give you a report and tell you to bring it to William de Worde, who is in the AM Times building off the north end of Gleam Street. When you give it to him he will ask you to find a matching picture for it, and to give the picture and report to Mr. Goodmountain who will print an article for it. Go downstairs in the AM Times building, and "search iconographs". You need to find the iconograph which matches the report ("read report").  Once you have this, go back to Mr. Goodmountain and give the report and the iconograph to him. He will make a print out of it and give it to you. Give this print to William de Worde to get the quest. You also get A$20.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Bush Whacker", in which you beat around the bush. (Quest level 3) Skills: 119 (less may work) adventuring.movement.climbing.rock bonus. Go north as far as you can in the park off of Goose Gate Road in Ankh-Morpork. Then head east to enter the maze. From the frog, go E, SE, NE, S, NW, NE, SE, N, N, W, W, W, SE, W.

"Coin Collector", in which you proved yours was the best. (Quest level 3) Items: tatty old magazine, mahogany display case; both bought at Coin Corner. Go to the Coin Pitt on The Pitts Inside the Coin Pitt find Urotho who will tell you that he wants to buy rare coin collections. Reading the magazine obtained from Coin Corner you will find a list of coins which will satisfy his needs. Buy a display case for the coins (any type will do). The shop sells all needed coins but won't have them all in stock all the time. When you have a complete collection return to Urotho and give him the whole collection to claim the quest (Note: the names from the magazine will not always match the names in the shop exactly; for example, a "very old Omnian obol" is sold in the shop as "an ancient Omnian obol").  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Daddy's Little Helper", in which you put an end to an old man's thirst. (Quest level 2) On the docks northeast of Cockbill Street and just west of Ankh Bridge, you'll find a pier with Pa Abigayle on it. He says he's thirsty. If you get him the drink he asks for, you'll get the quest. Some of these are in the tented tavern a few rooms to the west.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Electrick Marstar", in which you made a meal of the electrick. (Quest level 6) Skills: 100 crafts.culinary.cooking bonus, 70 crafts.culinary.butchering bonus Items: sausage (All Hours Cafe on Dimwell Street) Items: ground garlic (in the garden of Temple of Small Gods, witch gardens, Scrogden garden, or terrains outside Djelibeybi - Grind in a grinder in a witch's house) Items: scumble (from any tavern) Items: shot/measure glass (any nearby tavern) Items: 1 bottle of beer (any nearby tavern) Items: lard (tub in Gimlet's back room) Items: flour (bag in Gimlet's back room) Items: 1 bottle of water (fill from the sink in Ironcrust's Bakery) Go to Thomas Eddiesson's house on Cable Street and: "say Hey Igor. What is the recipe for fatsup? How would you make it?" "say What sort of spirit based alcohol alcoholic bribe would you like, Igor?" "bribe" the Igor upstairs with the scumble. He'll give you a recipe that involves the items listed above. First you need to mix those, then fix the stove afterward, when you're ready to cook. Here's a step by step guide to mixing: search dresser get pan fill shot glass from water bottle pour shot glass into pan fill shot glass from beer pour shot glass into pan Basically the beer has to be in a 1:1 ratio to the water. As far as the amount, keep adding water and beer in the above ratios until the pan is about half full. But the net result should be that the pan only has "watery beer" in it. If you have too much of one liquid, it will look like "watery beer and water", which means you should add a little more beer. Next: put a lot of ground garlic in pan get garlic from pan This works because excess solid ingredients can be removed from the pan, unlike liquids. You should now have only "garlicky watery beer" in your pan. Next: put a lot of flour in pan get flour from pan You should now have "beer and garlic gravy". Next: put a lot of lard in pan get lard from pan You should now have "greasy beer and garlic gravy". Next: put sausages in slicer slice all in slicer get all from slicer put all sausages in pan get sausages from pan This should give you "uncooked fatsup". ***TANGATHOR 03/28/11*** (In addition to the above information, I found the solution for me included "Brandy" in a very minimal amount) I used- 9 Shot Glasses of Water 9 Shot Glasses of Beer 12 Drops of Brandy (1/32 of a Phial (Buy a brandy, then "Fill phial 1/32 from Brandy") <add garlic, flour, and lard then remove> 3-4 sausages (depending on the number of slices you get from the slicer...i added then 1 at a time then checked the pan to ensure it was all turning to "Uncooked Fatsup" as I was NOT able to remove sausage from the pan for some reason) Next you need to fix the stove. "turn stove up" and it should indicate a faulty wire. "repair" that wire and keep trying until it's ready to cook. Turn the stove up to 120 or so, and pay very close attention to messages indicating how fast the fatsup is cooking, and "check temp on stove". If it's cooking too quickly, turn it down. If it's cooking too slowly, turn it up. You'll have to adjust the temperature at least a few times. If you fail at the cooking, you'll get an icky mess and have to start over from the very beginning. If you succeed in getting "congealed fatsup", give it to Thomas. He'll give you a light bulb.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Electrickally Marstered", in which you put yourself through pain to brew the perfect cup. (Quest level 7) Skills: 190+ adventuring.movement.climbing.rock bonus Skills: 161+ adventuring.movement.climbing.rope bonus Skills: 176+ adventuring.acrobatics.balancing bonus (Note that you'll need much higher skills if you are too burdened.) Items: copper stick (from the shelf in the Witch Cottage in Mad Stoat) Time: Night (this allows the button to induce thunder and lightning) Weather: medium cloud cover or more, gentle breeze was enough, no precipitations needed Go to the clock tower north of the Five Ways intersection. "Look tubes" to make sure one hasn't burst recently from someone else doing the quest - if it is burst you have to wait until the room regens (30 minutes on average). Go northeast, northwest, "move slab". Go down and "push button" to make the weather nasty on the roof. This changes to weather in the pole room on the roof to be two levels more cloudy, more windy and cooler and torrential rain. This needs to be enough to make it a storm. See the weather and temperature pages for the levels. Go back outside the tower and "climb up" twice, then "climb rope". Go south and "climb up" again, then go north to the center of the roof. With FULL HP "hold copper stick", "grasp pole", then "touch wire with stick". If there's a thunderstorm on ("Peals of thunder and streaks of lightning rend the sky.") you will be struck by lightning, go flying off the roof and probably break a leg and end up with less than 5 hp. It is possible to die from the lightning (this happened with full hp, at 1419 hp) instead of just falling off the roof. If you die, your corpse ends up conveniently outside the tower. Go back to the basement room, optionally set the dials and switches on the machine, and "pull lever". It should make some kind of coffee. Note that having died from the lightning does not prevent you from finishing the quest--you can still go downstairs and pull the lever after getting ressed.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Guide To The Undead", in which you helped someone begin anew. (Quest level 2) There is a "human zombie" somewhere wandering around Ankh-Morpork. This is a specific zombie, not the ones wandering around obsessing about brains. He's been spotted on the southeast end of Dock Street April 2008, on Dock Street, outside the jewellery shop along the docks in April 2010. Say "follow" and lead him to the Fresh Start Club in the eastern part of Elm Street.

The Fresh Start Club is hidden, following the above directions will lead you to it.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Heart Of Gold", in which you comforted someone far from home. (Quest level 2) Items: Snowball ("make snowball" in a room where it is snowing. The snowy area doesn't have to be Ankh-Morpork) In a house in the middle-ish bit of Quarry Lane go north into a kitchen. You may need to "move" or "search" the rug, and go down into the basement. There should be a troll there: if so, give him the snowball.  ^ Return to the table of contents. "Kinky Shopper", in which you purchased some interesting (Know what I mean? Eh?) underwear. (Quest level 1) Items:$7.50
Go to the Martial Aids store on Heroes Street and "nudge" then "wink" at Number One Son. Then say "know what i mean?" and he'll give you a key and lead you into the secret room.  Buy one of the kinky items stocked there.

Skills: 190 crafts.pottery.forming.shaping bonus
Skills: 101 crafts.pottery.glazing bonus
Skills: 107 crafts.pottery.firing bonus
Items: Maybe $10 if shaping skills are quite a bit higher than listed above, otherwise$50-100
After completing the POTTER'S FRIEND quest, make 5 plates and 5 bowls in the Potter's workshop on the north end of Cockbill Street.  Buy clay in the northern room, and the rest of the tools are available to use in the wheel room.  Steps:
1) "throw" the clay onto the wheel
2) unhold all
3) "mould" the clay into a plate or bowl
4) get the plate or bowl from the wheel
5) get and hold the brush
6) "glaze" the plate or bowl with the cochineal glaze
7) wait for the plate to dry (the glaze doesn't need to)
8) "fire" the plate or bowl (multiples can be done at the same time as well) in the kiln. The success message is "You select a shelf, carefully place a (item) in the kiln and adjust the air flow." and the failure message is "You put a (item) in the kiln.". If you get a failure message the item will explode, but you can get the item from the kiln while holding tongs and try to fire it again once it cools.
9) "check" items in the kiln until they're done.  There's no harm done leaving them in too long.
10) get and hold the tongs
11) get the items from the kiln and put them on the drying rack if you want them to cool faster
The plates & bowls have to be rustic, plain, pleasant, or fine for the potter to accept them.  The glaze can be as crappy as you like and the potter won't care.  Take the plates & bowls, some at a time or all at once, to the wandering potter and say "help" and then "assist".   Give him the plates and bowls and you'll get 1 shiny dollar for each.


"Matefinder", in which you helped a pair in a gender non-specific way. (Quest level 3)

Find Gritjaw Thighsplitter wandering in AM, usually in the section bordered to the north by Dock Street, to the west by Treacle Mine, to the south by Cheap Street, and to the east by Short Street and the Ankh River.

Items: a few dollars
If your skill branch is high enough, go to Mr. Cheese in the Bucket Inn on the northeast end of Gleam Street.
First be sure you have at least two names set in your finger info.  He won't know if they're fake, but they should be different than your character name.  Say you want a job or offer to help.  When he asks about what you're good at, say the name of your highest major skill branch.  He'll tell you to bring him certain items:
sulphur (from Alchemists' Guild shop on Street of Alchemists)

Bring them to Mr. Cheese and he'll give you an electrum link that can be rubbed.


"Potter's Friend", in which you helped a craftsman continue his work. (Quest level 3)

Skills: 109+ crafts.carpentry.furniture bonus
Items: a hammer (any sort, the tool shop on Ettercap Street sells several)
Items: three nails (odds and ends shop on east end of Plaza of Broken Moons)
Go to the pottery shop on the north end of Cockbill Street, hold the hammer, and "fix" the wheel with the nails.


"Practical Joker", in which you doused a souse. (Quest level 2)

Go to the XXXX shop just north of the west end of Filigree Street and buy a tin of beer.  Leave the shop "shake" the tin four times, until it says whoever opens it will have a frothy surprise.  Go back inside the shop and give the tin to Wozza.


"Prolific Paster", in which you accomplished a sticky endeavour. (Quest level 4)

Go to the Dwarf Bread Museum and find Felicity.  Say "problem" and "I’ll put up the posters for you" and she'll then give you some posters and glue.  How many posters you need to put up depends on where you put them.  The lines at the end of the room descriptions are no indication (it's crowded here, etc).  What you need are rooms with lots of exits.  Five or even six exits are great, but if you're somewhere like the Plaza of Broken Moons or Sator Square, don't put them too close together.  To put up the posters, "apply" the glue to the poster and "paste" the poster in the room.  If you need more posters or glue, go back to Felicity and say you need them.  She might make you wait a bit.


"Punching Bag", in which you carried around a carcass. (Quest level 1)

Items: Side of beef (Butcher on God's Collar)
Items: Meat hook (Shop on Morpork Street)
Items: Hemp rope (Balboni's apartment)

Go to Stony Balboni's apartment near the eastern end of Pony Parts. The entrance is hidden and can be accessed using "climb staircase".
Search the junk in his apartment for a hemp rope. Give him the rope, meat hook and side of beef.


"Rock Star", in which you raked till you ached. (Quest level 3)

Skills: 128 or more adventuring.movement.climbing.rock bonus (unhold all, no shoes, light burden), cr.ar.design (bonus unknown)
Items: Rake (smithy on northeast side of Street of Small Gods)
Go to the Shonky Shop on Clay Lane and wander around until you get to the room with Brother Soon Shine Sun. Go through the hidden exit east here then continue east to a yard with a locked gate. "Climb" the wall and go west into the History Monks temple, then say "help" when Ludlakk is in the room. He'll give you a piece of paper with a grid design on it to be raked into the sand.  "rake" the grid based on the grid coordinates, to form the letters and symbols displayed. "syntax rake" is very helpful.  If you cross over a previously raked section, you'll have to rake it again. Before you start, look at the design on the paper and figure out you're path for going back and forth while avoiding the rocks.


"Short Changed", in which you learned the true meaning of 'No pain, no gain'. (Quest level 4)

Items: a few dollars (or tickets, if you have some from completing Prolific Paster), and possibly a friend depending on how you want to do it
When in the Dwarf museum, you need to get your tooth jolted out.  There are multiple ways to loosen it and finally knock it out:
*Eating the scone from the water dunking game. (The scone is not consumed.)
*Eating a tessera won from a game. (The tessera is not consumed.)
*Eating dwarf bread prizes bought with tessera. (Misfortune cookies are consumed, but others aren't.)
*Standing on the platform of the strength tester and having someone else play the game.

If you get messages about your tooth feeling a bit looser, etc., then it's working.  You may need to wait a little while in between eating the scone or tesserae (alternatively, you may not get a message every time it's loosened a bit).

At the entrance to the museum, search the walls to find the hidden room and unlock the door using the key that can be won from the lucky dip game. You could also pick the door, but a bonus of 327 in covert.lockpick.doors fail repeatedly. Place the tooth under the pillow, lie on the bed and then sleep... Repeat this until you get the quest and one dollar from the tooth fairy.


"Sympathetic", in which you brought happiness through compassion. (Quest level 1)

Find the wandering sad man near the intersection Attic Bee and Short street (sometimes in Brother David's) and "comfort" him.  There are other "sad men", but this one has a shorter description.


"Top Scorer", in which you got kicked around by a bunch of playful trolls, repeatedly. (Quest level 3)

Skills: up to 125 fighting.unarmed.striking bonus to score goals
Skills: fighting.defence.dodging to avoid being hit
Skills: ad.perception to avoid running into people (might TM during play)
Skills: fi.ra.thrown may also help with scoring, TMs during play if low
Items: obsidian boots OPTIONAL (bought from injured troll)
Go to the room with the injured troll on Quarry Lane and "join game" to play.  You can leave the game if you're getting too hurt. You can also use curing rituals during the game. Score 8 times to get the quest.   You may want to drop the trophies to avoid burdening while playing.  After each score, "join game" again to play more.


"Walleyed", in which you freed a mason. (Quest level 4)

Skills: 200+ adventuring.perception bonus (200 will succeed infrequently when measuring), 120+ people.culture.ankh-morporkian bonus
Items: measuring tape, chisel, and crowbar (tool shop on Ettercap Street)
Go to the west side of Ankh-Morpork, along Endless Street.  There's a wall you can look at in each room starting 5 rooms n/nw of Limping Gate and going to one south of Shambling Gate.  These are the only rooms the quest will be in.  In a random wall room, you can "search wall" to find a piece of paper.  Another random wall room will have the next step in the quest.  To find the room, start at one end of the wall and "measure wall" with the measuring tape until you see something about an odd stone and crumbling mortar. Measuring too many times within a given time period will cause your eyes to cross and you will have to wait several minutes for them to uncross to continue. Once you have found the correct wall room, "chip mortar" while holding the chisel until the mortar is gone, then "lever block" while holding the crowbar until the block comes out.


Haunted Mansion quests

"Axe Dealer", in which you returned a dwarf's family heirloom. (Quest level 2)

Items: weather-beaten key (see SEASONED EXPLORER quest) or lockpicking abilities, a light source
Go to the mansion on Short Street, just south of the intersection with Attic Bee.  "press switch" in the first room to reveal a stairway leading down.  Make sure your light source is lit, and go down.  Go one more room, and get the axe from the corpse, or from the floor if the corpse has decayed.
Don't go any further in the cellar: retrace your steps upstairs and back out to Short Street.

Go to the flats immediately east of the mansion, then into the south apartment on the ground floor.  Go north into the bedroom (you'll hit your head on a bar and get hurt a bit if you don't "crawl").  Give the axe to Stavic to receive the key.


"Crypt Robber", in which you broke into an ancient crypt. (Quest level 1)

Having completed the VETERAN EXPLORER quest below and killed the greater demon (you need to have done the MASTER OF CEREMONIES quest before you can kill the greater demon) then head north once. In this room, you have to "open coffin". This is disguised as a stone table. Then you can "get all" from the coffin.


"Master Of Ceremonies", in which you performed a mystic ceremony. (Quest level 4)

There are two ways to do this quest:
Items: 1 eagle feather per participant (from Bandit Camp eagle quest - a repeatable quest)

1) For wizards and witches:  At 12:00AM Disc time (midnight), walk diagonally (northeast/southwest) through the connected rooms at the bottom of the tower of Art until you are magically transported to a room in the clouds.  Place the eagle feather on the statue.

2) For priests, assassins, warriors and thieves:  This involves three players, one of which should be a priest, one should be a warrior and the other either a thief or an assassin.  Read the book in the tower of the mansion near the intersection of Short Street with Attic Bee.  First the priest should say "sulamore" and then "galimore". The warrior should then say "duvanti", and finally the thief/assassin should say "duvanti".


"Radiant Adventurer", in which you found a magic pool and received a magic boost. (Quest level 7)

Skills needed: perception (bonus unknown), climbing skills
Collect 9 coloured glass segments from around Ankh-Morpork. These are found by
(1) looking at the stones in the mine on Whalebone Lane,
(2) looking at the soot in a hidden room on God street,
(3) looking at the junk in Nobby's room in the Pseudopolis Yard Watch House,
(4) looking at the sun in the model of the Disc in the Enlightened Brethren room on Bitwash Street, (5) Looking under the counter in Bernita's flower shop on Treacle Street,
(6) using or swivelling the telescope on Fiveways' bell tower roof (climbing skills required)
(7) looking at the blowhole of a whale statue in Sator Square,
(8) looking in the waste basket in the Apex club Hall of Heroes, and
(9) looking at the ice in a cellar on Quarry Lane.
After completing CRYPT ROBBER, put the coloured glass segments on the plate by the stairs.

Go down the stairs. The first puzzle is a set of 9 coloured levers on a panel, one for each segment. All levers need to be in the down position.
Each lever swaps the position of itself and at least two other levers. Below is a list of which levers swap which levers:
Red lever: Red, Orange, Green, Blue
Yellow lever: Yellow, Violet, White, Black
Orange lever: Orange, White, Black
Green lever: Green, Indigo, Violet, Black
Blue lever: Green, Blue, White
Indigo lever: Red, Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet, White, Black
Violet lever: Yellow, Blue, Violet
White lever: Orange, Blue, White, Black
Black lever: Red, Orange, Violet, Black

Next is a maze puzzle, you must determine which numbered corridor to follow out of each room. The order is that of the colours of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. There is a perception skillcheck involved in looking, though you can also find out without looking.
When looking into a numbered corridor says The passage glows with instead of You think the passage is glowing with, that means you passed the skillcheck and you can be certain that is the true colour.
Finally, you need to look for a room with transparent white light, which is the end of the quest.

Be careful, you can take small amounts damage from hitting your head (~200 hp) or gases.

At the end of the maze is a room with a riddle. You need to solve the riddle to access the radiance pool.

After solving the riddle, wield the weapon(s) you want radianced and go north. Dip the weapons in the pool. Use the portal to exit.



"Seasoned Explorer", in which you discovered a hidden dungeon. (Quest level 1)

First go to the flats on Short Street just south of Street of Small Gods.  Go all the way upstairs, and into the south flat.  Go into the bedroom and go "up" then "search nest" to get the weather-beaten key.  Take the key and go to the mansion across the street.  Inside, "press switch" and go down.  Don't wander around further unless you know what you're doing.


"Veteran Explorer", in which you discovered new areas in the hidden dungeon. (Quest level 4)

Skills: some ad.perception?, some co.ca.place, some co.lo.door, some co.lo.traps, possibly co.ma.stealing, co.it.traps?, some fighting. The last trap needs co.it.tr and co.it.po to disarm.
This quest involves disarming traps a few times. You have to be able to spot the traps in order to disarm them, otherwise you'll get hurt.

To complete this quest, you will first need an iron amulet from the wind demon upstairs in the Old Mansion on Short Street south of Brother David's. To get this, enter the mansion (see SEASONED EXPLORER), go up, and go west. Search (possible skillcheck here) to find a lever, pull lever, go up. There's an exit west, then go south. Open the door using a key, it should be the one from the dwarf corpse, or just lockpick it. In the next room you need to disarm the flame trap before you can head south.

To get the wind demon to appear, open the box, and it will come out and autoattack. Kill it to get its amulet, or if you're a thief, filch the amulet from the demon. Or just kill the demon if you want to. Don't wear the amulet because it breaks easily in combat. The room should reset in about 30 minutes and allow another wind demon to come out if you need another amulet because the banshee respawned too fast (sometimes it can be near instantaneous).

Go to the hidden cellar from SEASONED EXPLORER by pressing the switch inside the front door and go down, then south.

The east exit of the room with the dwarf corpse is trapped with a blade trap. Either disarm the trap, or crawl.

Then open the east door with the key from Stavic, or lockpick it if you wish.

In the next room, there are three demons. They don't autoattack, but you must kill them to go east again. The demons spawn relatively quickly - 5 minutes or so, in my experience - so get the amulet from the wind demon upstairs first.) Try not to die. It's a bit of a hassle to retrieve stuff from one's corpse when there are demons and locked doors.

In the next room is a banshee and a gas trap. "Use amulet on banshee" and it will disappear and the amulet will crumble to dust. Hurry up to disarm the gas trap because the banshee respawns fast and if it does you need to go fetch another amulet and by then the demons and blade trap will have respawned too.

In the next room there is a greater demon (that does not autoattack) that can only be killed if you have done the MASTER OF CEREMONIES quest. Just reaching this room will get you the VETERAN EXPLORER quest and \$75. You can proceed to the CRYPT ROBBER quest above which involves killing the greater demon.
