Shows the direction to a corpse.


Derived from find, this ritual only locates corpses. Sometimes corpses are hard to find (in the plains for example), so this ritual could help a Pishite to find his target.

Help File

A priest may use this ritual to determine where a particular corpse is. The priest provides the name of the deceased and the holy amulet that the priest carries will swing in the approximate direction of the corpse. To perform this ritual successfully you need an amulet.

Help File Note

Non-playerkillers (NPKs) should not use this ritual to find playerkiller (PK) corpses without first ensuring that the deceased PK has not lost their corpse as a part of an ongoing PK interaction.

If in doubt, you should speak with the deceased PK and whoever moved the corpse in order to ensure that you have permission from the person who moved it to help the deceased find it again.

If unsure as to whether finding a PK corpse is permissable, it is better to err on the side of caution and either verify first with a liaison that it is alright in this situation or to not search for the corpse at all.


> perform find corpse
You utter a quick prayer.
You hold up your set of sapphire prayer beads.
A soft voice gently whispers: Whose corpse do you wish to find?
> taffyd
Your set of sapphire prayer beads rapidly swings due west.


In order of closest to furthest away, the messages are:

  • hangs perfectly still: In the same room
  • rapidly: 1 room away
  • hastily: 2 - 5 rooms away
  • hurriedly: 6 - 20 rooms away
  • swiftly: 20 - ? rooms away
  • steadily: just outside the city with the corpse
  • ponderously: up to 10 rooms away from the city with the corpse
  • gradually: more than ten rooms away from the city with the corpse and up to the distance between AM and Sto Lat
  • almost imperceptibly: more than the distance between AM and Sto lat, somewhat less than the distance between AM and Gloomy Forest
  • slowly: about the distance from AM to Gloomy, OC, Lancre Town, or Djelibeybi
  • sluggishly: about the distance from AM to Genua or Bes Pelargic
  •  ?

(These messages are what you get for around a 224 bonus in fa.ri.mi.area. It's unknown whether their ranges change for different bonuses.)

Sometimes you may also get a message of "swings wildly in every direction". This happens when:

  • There are multiple corpses
  • It's impossible to find the right direction (for example, when you are in your passage room)
