Pech is a mob added by the Thaumcraft 4 mod. Comes in 3 different types: Pech Forager, Pech Stalker and Pech Mage. A materialistic creature that will grab almost any item left on the ground near it, Pech are particularly fond of objects with the
Lucrum
Aspect. Pech are not aggressive unless damaged but otherwise behave like a hostile mob, disappearing if the player moves too far away. Nametags can be used to avoid despawning, and Safari Nets are useful for long term storage. Switching to Peaceful mode will delete any Pech in loaded chunks, named or not. The Pech will trade items with the Player. If given enough items with the
Lucrum
aspect, it may befriend the player, indicated by green stars hovering over the Pech; an animation similar to the one seen when trading with a Villager. At this point, Right-clicking on the Pech will open a GUI. Inserting an item that the Pech finds desirable (any object with
Lucrum
, for example) in the left slot, Click on the die image that appears in the middle, and items may appear in the right slots. The Player is essentially gambling with the Pech. The more desirable the item, the better the items obtained. There does not seem to be any benefit beyond 5
Lucrum
(so trading a Diamond Block would be somewhat a waste). Different types of Pech will give different types of items, for example, a Mage Pech will sometimes give a Wand Focus: Pech's Curse. The Pech mage may drop its wand with the Pech's Curse focus on death, and offers Knowledge Fragments the most often of the three types as trades. A Forager Pech may trade Silverwood Saplings.

Thaumonomicon Entry[edit]

"These strange humanoids can be found wherever the veil between worlds is at its thinnest. They seem drawn to the magical energies that abound in such places.

Don't let their small stature fool you. They have incredible strength and can carry many times their own bodyweight.

Pech are normally not aggressive, but when riled up they will band together and hunt down their attacker. Under normal conditions they avoid people at all costs.

Pechs are notoriously avaricious, and will loot anything not nailed down, though they prefer precious things. It is said that if you feed this desire for material wealth it could be possible to befriend one. Once befriended they often carry wondrous objects that they might be willing to part with.

It should be noted that such 'friendships' seldom last long."
