14.2 VERMIN HUNTING

Whether in the form of disease-ridden vermin that infest cities and plague forest communes, vermin are the bane of all cultures. For many,
vermin are a blight that must be endured, but others see walking gold 
sovereigns--indeed, many a resourceful youth has taken advantage of the 
largesse of cities and communes who pay handsomely for the eradication of these
pests. 

Vermin buyers
-------------
Serenwilde   Abeytu     Weevils (located in Arboretum)
Glomdoring   Swampghast Weevils (located in a rock in the swamp)
New Celest   Neran      Rats    (located in Sanitation Department)

Gaudiguch    Mesetha    Lizards (located in a stall crowded with cages)
Hallifax     Lafu       Pigeons (located in Corrections Institute)

Syntax
------
SELL RATS/WEEVILS/PIGEONS/LIZARDS TO <name> 
  Sells all your vermin to the person in order to get your reward.
  You must be in the same room as the rat person.

Because there are so many vermin wandering about and because seeing them enter 
and exit can become annoying, the command VERMIN will toggle on and
off your ability to notice them. Generally, you will want to turn this off
while you are not out hunting.

When you see a vermin dart out of its hiding spot, by all means, slay it before
it can run away. Once a certain number have been slain in a location, no more 
will appear there until a new Lusternian day. Generally, you'll find that a 
sewer location contains more rats than a normal city street.

I CAN'T FIND ANY VERMIN
-----------------------
As noted above, rats only appear in cities and sewers, and vermin only appear 
in forest communes. Pigeons can sometimes appear flying. Beyond that, only a few vermin may be killed in any particular place before they get wise and won't return until the next Lusternian day. 

VERMIN STATS
------------
There are varying types of vermin. Ranging from most common to least common 
(which also corresponds to least valuable to most valuable), they are:
