Ramtops quests

"Abuser of Bugs", in which you pestered a pest persistently. (Quest level 6)

Discworld quest page for Abuser of Bugs

Skills: 211 adventuring.perception bonus
Skills: 181 or less covert.manipulation.sleight-of-hand bonus

If you search certain rooms in the Ramtops, you might find the bug (perception requirement - seemingly not a skillcheck, but a hard minimum above which you'll always succeed if the bug is in the room).  If you can hang onto it (sleight-of-hand skillcheck), you can "abuse" it.  You'll need to do this at least six times in total - each act of abuse only counts towards the required six if the bug talks back to you; merely seeing "You abuse the bug" is not sufficient.  You can abuse it multiple times each time you find it, so you don't necessarily have to find it six different times.

After you abuse the bug it flies off, and eventually respawns in a random location (sometimes even the same as where you found it).

The bug is not always present, in any of the rooms.  You might need to try repeatedly with breaks in-between.  Either it can spawn / move into more rooms than are listed here, or there is some delay between respawns.

*A path near a gorge [sw].

*The western end of the temple's garden [n,e,w,ne,nw].

Temple of Soyin
*Outside the Temple of Soyin the Wandering God [n,s].

There are special roomchats when the bug is hiding in the room:
  There is a tiny clicking noise from somewhere in the area.
  You hear a faint buzz, but can't see what's making the noise.
  There is a little flash of movement just out of sight, as if something's hiding here.
  You almost catch sight of something scuttling around in the shadows, but when you blink it's gone.
  You catch a slight scuttling motion out of the corner of your eye.  Something's hidden here, you're sure of it.

You do not need to first see any of these before you can successfully find the bug with the "search" command (they're presumably just clues to the quest for hyper-observant players that don't just read these solutions).

* If your MUD client supports it, add bookmarks for each of the locations.  e.g. with Quow's client you can name them "bug1" through "bug42", and write "minimap route bugN" to immediately speedwalk to the Nth location.
* Move through the possible locations systematically, one by one, searching at each in turn.
* Prioritise the villages first - with any luck you'll always find the bug there, and not have to travel far off to the bandit camp, temple of Soyin, or Listening Monks.
* Budget several hours.  Even moving rapidly between all the locations, it still takes quite a long time, and there may simply be no bugs present at times, requiring you to come back later.

Druid Circle quests

"Honourary Druid", in which you helped upgrade an aging megalithic circle. (Quest level 6)

Discworld quest page for Honourary Druid

Go to the druid area on the southeastern side of the forest.  Watch out for spiders on the way.  "search stones" in the outer circle until you find the entrance to the underground area.  Go down, then east and tell the clerk you want to join the Druids, and he'll give you three of the following tasks:

1) Gathering a secret herb of unusual luminance that you'll find by searching the plants in the southwest corner of the outer circle.  There appears to be a skillcheck for finding the herb.

2) The watered blood of a slaughtered innocent that takes more effort. Get a bottle and go to the centre of the Druid circle around midnight. Wait until the sacrifice starts and when you see the blood running down the aqueduct run round to the exit point of the aqueduct in the southwest corner of the outer circle and 'fill bottle with water'.  The bottle should end up with "diluted blood" in it, not "red water"-- if it's "red water", you tried at the wrong time.

3) Some moss that has to be collected at full moon with a sickle or other sharp object, around the circle. Syntax would be "scrape moss with dagger". 

4) Ash of an unrepentant sinner. This is one I didn't have to do, I can confirm however that ash can be found by searching the fire in the clearing in the north west corner of the circle. 

5) Finally a very nice chunk of diamond. This is a white gem pebble and can be found in the quarry on the east side of the circle. You need to 'mine walls with <item>' or 'mine vein with <item>'. Try a pickaxe. The hard part is that you can only find it if the light level is high enough; the quarry if examined will reveal that this is when the sun is directly overhead. Note that this must be done at midday, because light level does not actually seem to be a factor. This requires some skill in crafts.mining.gem--a bonus of 175 is enough, and a bonus of 145 seems to have partial success (some success with some failed attempts). (Note that you only seem to get one opportunity to try it per day, at midday-- subsequent attempts on the same day will only result in mining normal rocks.)

^ Return to the table of contents.

"Unwelcome Hero", in which you jumped to conclusions and ruined someone's day. (Quest level 3)

Discworld quest page for Unwelcome Hero

Type 'search stones' while you move around the outer circle of the Druid's Circle until you find an entrance. Go to the storage room and open crates with a 'crowbar' (broomsticks work too, as do pickaxes). Search crates for 'wirecutters'.Go to the centre of the druid circle and wait for the ceremony to begin. It's usually damn cold, so you might want to have something warm. 'Syntax Cut' Cut the wires when the little boy is tied. Archdruid will attack you. Fight. Win. Cut the wires again to set the boy free. Quest completed.
Things needed: 1 crowbar or similar

"feel trees" to translate the grooves on the trees, then "head  <dir> for <number> miles" in the indicated direction and distance to attempt to get back to the village.  There is some randomness involved in the skillcheck, so you might have to try several times.

"Patron Of The Arts", in which you mixed it up a little. (Quest level 5)

Discworld quest page for Patron Of The Arts

Items: A hammer (used to PULVERISE the stones, rocks, and pebbles into powder) and 1-3 bottles of linseed oil (can be bought in the stall in town)
Items: Red rocks (north of the inn), yellow stones (on the south path into town), blue pebbles (Annie Spindlewits' garden)
Items: 1-3 eggs (shelf in Annie's pantry)
Items: Water (Annie's well), bottles are available in the scullery basket or bin
Offer to help Virgo Vango in Brass Neck and he will give you a colour of paint which he desires.  Next, create each primary colour of paint in the bowl in Virgo's back room.  Required syntaxes are:
clean bowl
break egg into bowl
mix red powder into bowl
mix oil into bowl
mix water in bottle into bowl
Repeat the above steps for the yellow and blue powder, as needed to create your colour.  Each bottle should have 3 doses of paint which can be mixed into the new shade, using "mix red paint in paint bottle into bowl".  No colour will require more than three doses of each primary colour. The rules for colour mixing are straightforward: red + blue makes purple, red + yellow makes orange, yellow + blue makes green, red + blue + yellow makes brown.  1 dose of each colour is a "pale" shade and 3 doses of each colour is a "dark" shade.  2 doses is just the regular colour.  If the colour desired is a mixed colour (green-brown), then you need brown (red + blue + yellow) plus green (blue + yellow), meaning you need 1 red + 2 blue + 2 yellow.  Greenish-brown would be more brown then green, hence double the brown aspect (2 red + 2 blue + 2 yellow) before adding the green (1 blue + 1 yellow) for a total of (2 red + 3 blue + 3 yellow).  If one part of the colour is "ish", there's less of that colour than the second part of the colour.  If there's no "ish", the two parts are equal.
There's some colours that mix different ratios of all three colours (1 red + 2  blue + 3 yellow, etc), such as gold, copper, bronze, turquoise, violet, and magenta.  For those, look at the most prevalant colour (red for magenta) and use three parts of that.  Then look at the second most prevalant colour (blue for magenta, because magenta is purplish) and use two parts of that.  Use one part of the remaining colour.  When you have created the right colour, 'scoop paint into bottle'. Give the desired shade to Virgo Vango.

Skills: Dwarven written
Enter different instances of the abandoned mineshaft until you find a great hall whose corridor is propped up by a fallen beam. Crawl and move to the opposite direction of the door.

When the wolf shows up and grabs a sheep, go east, then "investigate" his tracks to follow him another 4 rooms.  Kill the wolf (bring tea), and go down.  Flossie the sheep will follow you when she smells the shirt, so lead her back to the paddock.

Search Heinie's cot near the pasture on the northwest edge of town, and spray yourself with the aftershave.  Go to the bridge, then go down.  Once the goat gets a whiff and starts following you, go up the path after killing the troll (the troll is not initially hostile).  Lead the goat to the dairy, and search objects twice in the storeroom to get the bucket and cheesecloth, and get the paddle from the churn. Go back to the first room of the dairy, and search the shelves to get the ripener (inside a small waxed paper packet).

Slippery Hollow quests

"Hollow Hero", in which you solved the mystery of Slippery Hollow. (Quest level 8)

Discworld quest page for Hollow Hero

Quests Required: Hollow Recruit
Skills required: some ad.direction (160+ worked), Hp for survival

Follow the link to the Mud Quest solution for steps to follow. The advise below is for the forest maze and the fight at the windmill.

Hints for the forest maze:
- Directions are hidden, so you will need to try all exits to explore the forest maze.
- Some exits in rooms will one-way teleport you to another part of the maze.
    - Example: you go northeast from room A to room B. If that was a one-way exit, going southwest from room B will not bring you back to A
- Always be prepared to move quickly when exiting a room in the maze, as you may face very dangerous enemies
- The most dangerous things in the forest maze are the bandersnatch and jabberwocky, they can do a lot of damage in a few rounds. Try to run to the entrance when you see them.
- It may seem that you have explored all rooms in the maze, but remember to try all exits
- The Tree of the Dead is located deep within the forest maze

Fight at the windmill:
- The fight isn't very hard, but you can't exit after you start the fight

"Hollow Recruit", in which you joined the fight to save Slippery Hollow. (Quest level 4)

Discworld quest page for Hollow Recruit

Skills: 101+ bonus in crafts.medicine.treatment.injury
Items: 12 Shillings

Go to the mansion in Slippery Hollow, and find Irkabod Stork in the study. Tell him "I want to help" (or "I wish to aid in the investigation"), then "yes", then say "checking in". He'll send you to buy the 3 different local guidebooks (red, brown and blue), which are sold by Agnetha Phedre in a house near the entrance to Slippery Hollow for 4 shillings each.
Return to Irkabod and say "checking in", and give him each book as he asks for them. Say "checking in" again, and he'll ask you to get another book for him (the title is Lancre's Forbidden History).

Now you'll have to complete the library puzzle. You're looking for "Lancre's Forbidden History", and you'll be able to use "Harrmorton's Illustrated Arsenal" as a reference.
You need to 'Seek "Harrmorton's Illustrated Arsenal"' and make note of the letter it gives you - it'll correspond to either the first, middle or last letter of one of the three words. You'll then need to 'seek "Lancre's Forbidden History" under _' where _ is the letter that corresponds to that position. For example, if "Harrmorton's Illustrated Arsenal" was found under A, you'd need to seek "Lancre's Forbidden History" under H.

There are 3 steps to the library minigame which must be completed in order. The first step's letter uses the book's name, the second step's letter uses the description, and the third step's letter uses some words on the first page.

For reference:
"Harrmorton's Illustrated Arsenal" is a "humongous foxed black" book with "For Neville Cloplaw" written on the first page.
"Lancre's Forbidden History" is a "weighty smeared brown" book with "Mysteriis Diabolica Perquor" written on the first page.

Once you complete the 3 steps, there will be a cutscene. Wait, and you'll be returned to Irkabod. Say "checking in" again, and then once more when he's done speaking. He'll send you to see Doctor Lancreman, who is in a house between the mansion and the main crossroads of Slippery Hollow. Head into the back room, where the corpse is.

You'll have to examine the various parts of the corpse, searching for the important clues. They can be found by examining the: angle, surface, tearing, crust and clots.

Once the corpse is examined, read the note. It'll tell you to create <opacity> <colour> chemical.

red+blue -> purple
red+yellow -> orange
yellow+blue -> green

clear+cloudy -> misty
clear+opaque -> swirly
cloudy+opaque -> translucent

The chemicals are mixed using:
mix <texture1> <colour1> and <texture2> <colour2> chemicals.

You'll then need to examine the left hand. This is where the crafts.medicine.treatment.injury check is required.

Finally, there is a piece of paper stuck in the right hand. You'll need to "manipulate" the correct sequence of fingers to open the whole hand. Each finger/thumb has it's own configuration of fingers that also move when you manipulate it. The easiest way to pass this minigame is to write down which fingers affect which other fingers and you should be able to solve it within a few moves.

When you complete the minigame, you will need to sit through another cutscene. When it's over, you can go back to the mansion and say "checking in" to Irkabod Stork for a final time to complete the quest.

Items: monk habit, broom (supposedly) or broomstick (confirmed). For further joy, bring a lockpick and know the pick command.

In the down room off the main corridor is a quiet monk guarding a hallway of blades.

"Earitating Student", in which you had lessons in a subtle art. (Quest level 4)

Discworld quest page for Earitating Student

Go to the novice dorms in the Temple of the Listening Monks and ask Brother Harken about becoming a novice (you'll have to whisper, he doesn't like too much noise). Next, search the beds to find a coral ear horn - if it's not there, there may be one in stock in the temple shop. Once you have it, go into the garden two rooms south and listen to the grass with the horn. After that, go to a small passage on the west side, south from the entrance to the library - where there is a paint bucket. Paint the wall and then listen to the paint with the horn. Next, go to the library and research shillings, sixpences, and thruppences to find out what sounds they make. Remember these noises. Finally, go back to Brother Harken and give him a shilling, a sixpence, and a thruppence. He will flip one of the coins. Depending on those noise, you can whisper to him the coin he flipped, and then guess if it was heads or tails. An example answer would be 'sixpence, heads'. If you get it wrong then he'll send you back to the library to research some more, and when you feel prepared you can come back and try again.

Discworld quest page for Preserver Of Peace

Skills: between 113-130 to succeed
Go to the north most room of the hotel on the east side of Lancre Town to find Brother Turbil. Mention the word 'assist' to him and he will give you a pair of holey overshoes. Go to the south house in Listeners' Valley and 'search basket'. Do this until you find a Zhu Ming Duck-Egg Blue thread or they are too tangled. The thread spawns randomly and may require more than one trip. Once you have this, mend the shoes using a needle. In order to mend, 'hold needle', 'thread needle with blue thread', and 'mend overshoes with needle'. If your skill is not sufficient, you may need to find multiple threads and mend it repeatedly until it is in excellent condition. The ritual mend will NOT work for this quest. Once the shoes are repaired, continue onto the Temple of Listening Monks and on the top step of the entrance you will find a silent or worried novice. Give him the mended overshoes and you will receive the quest.

Items: 2 lancre crowns

Go to the locked cottage in Mad Stoat that isn't a playerhouse (no plaque/number) and get in either with the key from a jolly woman living nearby (Say you need the key, say you will help her), or by picking the lock.  Get the ivory handle from the table.
Go to the Shepston house in Bad Ass (via the back door) and get the metal stick from a drawer.
Go to the forge in Bad Ass and "forge" the items to make a blade.

The Blade of Soyin thus forged is a different weapon then the Holy Blade of Soyin which can be acquired from the T-shop. Unfortunately, you cannot forge another Blade of Soyin, if you lose it you can't complete the quest and by finishing the quest the Blade of Soyin is gone.

Take the blade to the temple of Soyin (you probably need a taxi/cabbie to get there), go to the temple gift shop, and buy the amulet of confession.  Wear the amulet, go into confessions room, and place the blade in the alcove.

Items: 30-40 crowns
Order 20 different beverages from the bar upstairs.  The "regular" drinks count too, and the specials periodically change.

Discworld quest page for Superior Sportsman

Note that the vampires you need to kill to get the quest are as difficult as you'd expect them to be (which is EXTREMELY difficult - bring friends or be very large.

Travel through Uberwald to Magpyr Castle, find your way into the castle dungeons, and kill Count Magpyr. Attempts at skipping part of the route with a portal or passage may lead to you not getting the quest - it's most unsportsmanlike behaviour!

To get to the castle, follow the road east out of Escrow, and follow the signs. The trail will end at a river, with a sign warning that the bridge is out. Make your way across the river, approach the castle from the east, and make your way through to the point where a cliff path leads off to the east.

Now to get into the castle itself, follow the cliff path until you can climb the wall and enter the window. Once inside, search the frame of the painting to find the key of the door to the south. Explore this floor until you get to the garderobe.

Climb into the garderobe and you'll fall into a cesspit. Search the floor for a small key, then move the piles of filth to expose a door to the west. You are now outside the castle again, so will have to climb the walls again.

You now have access to the great hall, so once inside, find your way there and then do the Maestro quest to get access to Igor's room on the ground floor of the castle.

In Igor's room, search the mattress to find the dungeon key. Also search the stuffing to find a keyring for all the keys!

Go west into the dungeon. Continue on into the dungeon until you can see a gem in the carvings on the wall. If you try to get this gem, then Vlad will appear. Kill him and take his key. Go to the next room and do the same with Lacrimosa. Go north twice (if you have the keys you can just unlock the doors otherwise you'll have to pick the locks). In the room with the sarcophagus, open it and kill the count to get the quest.

Note:  you must be alone when you open the sarcophagus and kill the Count - if anyone else is in the same room (including clouds, balls of light, fruitbats, etc), he will disappear and the quest will fail. You'll need to come back and restart it some other time, once it resets. You do not need to repeat every other part of the quest, only the final part.

Skills: Some or the ability to cast Finneblaugh's Thaumic Float
Items: Scumble (a bottle with a pint of scumble can be found by searching Nanny Ogg's drink cabinet in nearby Lancre Town)
Follow the road from Creel Springs to Blackglass until you see an island on the map, and enter the barrows from the east (this requires either swimming across or floating across one room of the lake around the barrows). Find Fione mac Feegle and say "help". Then give her scumble. She seems to want about a pint (the amount of scumble that's in a bottle when you buy it) although it doesn't seem to have to be all at once. It doesn't matter if the scumble in the container is mixed with something else. Then "enroll", and Fione will ask you to repeat some phrases. There are four lessons, and you have to wait a bit before enrolling again. You can try enrolling before you hand over the scumble to check whether you've waited long enough. After the final lesson, you'll get some skills in Uberwaldean (and in Lancrastian culture) and the quest.
