When do I become PK?[]

Every Ninja will automatically become a playerkiller as soon as they finish the Ru Noperi at guild level 175. You may of course choose to become a playerkiller before then, but it is not required.

Why don't the Ninja have a thrown primary?[]

Quite simply, because our guild is not based on the ninja of Japan, but on the assassins from Interesting Times. Here is the official explanation from Kaylar:

Kaylar wisped: The long-winded explanation: originally you weren't "ninjas", you were "assassins".
Kaylar wisped: And you were based more on the assassins in Interesting Times.
Kaylar wisped: They used poisons, and blowpipes were the only things that were around that used         
               poison at the time.
Kaylar wisped: Then someone suggested that you should be called ninjas, and I agreed, not knowing all
               the expectations attached.
Kaylar wisped: Apparently, ninjas should throw weapons, use faith, kill twenty foes at a time with evil
               death looks and fly.
Kaylar wisped: And not be mutant turtles :(

Having fired as a primary instead of thrown can actually be beneficial, because fired depends more on dexterity, which is often one of the highest stats for ninja.

At what level do I get the inhume command?[]

At guild level 50 you will take the Chunin test with Master Yung to gain the inhume command and continue advancing. At this point you may only view and close NPC contracts on the scroll in the guild. At guild level 175 - and no sooner - you may attempt the Ru Noperi. Once the Ru Noperi has been successfully completed you will become PK and may view and close PK contracts on the scroll (if you have already closed at least four NPC contracts, that is).

Where do I find [npc contract's name]?[]

To pass the Chunin test and obtain the inhume command you will have to find the contract NPCs and find out information about them. This is an important part of your training because it encourages you to explore and find out where the various NPC contracts can usually be found (most don't move around much!). If you are having trouble with this part of your training most Ninja are willing to offer some advice, but please don't expect much help unless you're willing to make some effort as well.

How do I accept/take on a contract?[]

There is no need to officially accept a contract. If a contract is listed on the scroll you need simply to find the target and attempt to inhume it. If you are successful, payment will be waiting for you at the guild.

Where do I get tools to complete my chores?[]

There is a hidden room on the ground floor where you can find feather dusters, shovels, and other tools for completing your chores as a Genin or Chunin. Inspect everything in the guild thoroughly to find the room, or ask Master Yung and he may help you.

Where can I get a weapon?[]

Weapons are banned in Agatea, so there are few places you can buy a weapon in the city. Upstairs in the dormitory there are usually a few weapons in the communal chest. There is a hidden shop in the guild where you can buy weapons. To find it, look closely at everything you find in the guild. If all else fails, ask an older Ninja for help and they will most likely be able to get you a weapon.

What is a weapons permit and where do I get one?[]

Weapons are banned in Agatea, so you must have the proper paperwork to carry a weapon on the streets. If an Imperial Guard catches you with a weapon out they will confiscate it and you will have to buy it back. You can buy permits from the shifty looking men on Tuna Walk or the dock near Long Tang Lane. Beware, your permit will expire, so keep an eye on the date.

How are the Ninja related to the other Assassin guilds?[]

There are four separate assassin guilds on Discworld, the Ninja, Ankh-Morpork Assassins, Mano Rossa, and Hashishim. Though each of these guilds provides a similar service, they each have their own guild house and player administration. Under normal circumstances the four guilds work together peacefully, allowing members of the other guilds to use their training facilities and close their contracts. It's important to note that the AM Assassins have a number of outposts in town besides Ankh-Morpork, such as Sto-Lat and Ohulan Cutash which allow assassins to view the AM contract book.
