Tol Edo weapons

From Discworld MUD Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Tol Edo's shop is on Florin Avenue in Genua. He makes custom daggers, short swords, fencing blades, long swords, and greatswords.

No saying "you" or using souls or Tol Edo eventually attacks you!

Tol Edo seems to object to people saying "you" in morporkian in his presence, which is often done by renewing defensive spells, tempting your fruitbat, etc. Npcs like the sheep shearers or Noobie also say "you". He also reacts to souls directed at him, because they'll show him something like "Player fluffs you." that contains the hated "you".

You say: you
Tol Edo asks with a Genuan accent: Hey!  What the hell do you think you're doing?

It is unclear why this is happening since saying "you" (or using most souls) is not generally offensive, even Tol Edo himself says "you" in response. And he bows to you when presenting his creation, but if you bow back at him he yells.

After about 15 of these weird and pointless reactions to receiving "you" in morporkian or souls he will sadly snap and attack you without provocation.

Tol Edo exclaims with a Genuan accent: That's it!
Tol Edo moves aggressively towards you!

This is weird, cruel and unusual, especially since his description says "he is not prone to much violence."

You can avoid upsetting Tol Edo by not using souls on him and by setting your language to something other than morporkian and pass the ordering parameters like this:

'#mo order
