Klatch - the place where all the sand is

 — "Bugger all else but sand in Klatch." -- Fred Colon

What is Klatch?

Domains on the Discworld are divided into a number of subject area domains - AM, Ram, Forn, CWC, Sur, Guilds, Waterways and, most importantly (for these webpages, at least...) Klatch!

Klatch is the huge continent hubwards of the Circle Sea, from Tacticum on the El Kinte peninsula to the north, down to Istanzia to the south and everything west of there. You'll probably be most familiar with the cities of Djelibeybi and Ephebe, but there are smaller areas in game as well such as the Djelian trading post (north and somewhat west of Djelibeybi), Il Drim (a little fishing village southeast of Ephebe), the ruins of Tacticum, and a PK-only combat arena in the Tsortean desert.

What are we working on?

Our main focus in the Klatch domain right now is adding additional content to further enrich existing areas. Mostly this is intended to take the form of missions (in both Djelibeybi and Ephebe), but also includes additional shops, buildings, features, and all manner of other content.

Much current work is focussing on the adminstrative areas of Ephebe - the Citadel , Citadel palace, and associated features - such as player housing for Ephebe.

Applying to be a creator

Creators are hired into the central Developers domain and projects are assigned from the subject area domains (including Klatch) by need and the interest of individual creators. If you wish to apply as a creator please see the applyingsection of the website for further information.

Every God Has His Day - Wed Apr 6 17:41:42 2022

Chefet, the Dog-Headed God of Metalworking, has decreed that the doors to His temple are to be thrown open to the public. Visitors to this sacred place (conveniently located off Petulia Avenue, Ephebe) are invited to witness the masterful feats of metalworking conducted in His honour and to fill the temple coffers by purchasing one of the many exquisite items crafted by His faithful. Those who wish to try their hand at creating fine works of their own are welcome to make use of the forging facilities herein. Dogs and their owners are, of course, welcome in the temple and a room has been set aside to provide your canine companions with some respite from the hot Klatchian climate.

Hoplites' (faulty) perspicaciousness. - Thu Jan 7 13:35:47 2021

I've fixed a bug in hoplites and citadel guards where they'd speak to you even if they couldn't actually see you. Enjoy!

Major Sacrifice - Wed May 6 12:02:28 2020

Divine shielding granted by the sacrificial altars in Ephebe was far more powerful than originally intended. These therefore no longer grant a shield as a reward if you already have one active. This means that while you can still receive an extremely powerful shield of the same strength as before, its duration will be limited. You cannot now stack major/minor shield on yourself and use a sacrifice to strengthen it.
