Always strapped for employees, the takeaway restaurants of Bes Pelargic will gladly pay you to deliver meals to specific places or NPCs.

Delivery

To take on a takeaway job you need to 'offer services' to the staff manager in the back room of the restaurant. You then have 10, 20, or 30 roundworld minutes (depending on the restaurant) to get to the intended location or NPC and 'deliver meal'. You can still deliver the meal after the time is up, but your reward will be reduced significantly. You can 'check earnings' to see how much money you are due, and 'collect earnings' to be paid your wages. Occasionally an NPC will be mentioned whose presence in the target area will not be apparent until you attempt to deliver the meal.

If you cannot find your target and wish to give up, you can shamefully 'admit failure' to the staff manager, after which you will be fined. The fine will be taken out of any wages you have due, and if that's not enough you will have to 'pay debts' before you can take on a new delivery.

Restaurants

There are three takeaway restaurants in Bes Pelargic, each with a different level of difficulty.

You get a certain base amount of xp for the first timely delivery for each restaurant. This is repeatedly halved for each subsequent timely delivery within some time limitresearch--so if you make four deliveries for the same restaurant in quick succession, you'll get full xp for the first, half for the second, one fourth for the third, one eighth for the fourth, and so on. The different restaurants appear to be totally separate and have their own timers.

You don't get any xp if the delivery is late.
