How to Play
This is just an intro course to the Discworld. It is by no means definitive or all inclusive. Don't worry. There will be more!!!
The Great Wizzard
From 'Interesting Times'- The Great Wizzard is sent for, and the Archchancellor knows exactly who it is because of the spelling on his hat
The Disc's first tourist
From the Counter Weight Continent
It follows the tourist everywhere
Made from sapient pearwood and carries money, iconograph, does the laundry, etc., and has many, many feet.
The Archchancellor (post 'Sourcery')
Before 'Sourcery', and during, the post of Archchancellor is an ever changing thing due to the rule of 'Dead Man's Shoes'
Commander of the Watch
He of course starts out as Captain (drunk in the gutter) in 'Guards! Guards!', but is promoted, knighted, and given the title of Duke later on
Captain of the Watch (after #5 gets promoted)
A bit taller than your average dwarf, and has a funny birthmark in the shape of a crown...
Sergeant (or Sergeant Major) of the Watch
He's the type of man that just gravitates to the post of Sergeant.
Corporal of the Watch (and #7's sidekick)
Yeah, he's got a long name, but let's be real. He also needs to carry a certificate that says he's human
First 'W' word in the Watch
You might think the W stands for werewolf, but according to the Commander it stands for Woman!
'Don't let me detain you,' is his way of dismissing you, but it could also be a not-so-veiled threat
The Local Street Merchant
'I'll let you have it for only 3 dollars, and that's cutting me own throat!'
The Patrician's Secretary
It's a dangerous proposition being the right hand man of the most dangerous man in perhaps the whole Disc
The City State where you can find these people (usually)
Also known as the Big Wahooni
The river that runs through it
Probably the only river you could walk across in the summertime. But be careful! It does tend to catch fire sometimes.
The Home of the gods of the Disc
Think of it as the spindle in the middle of the Disc, and at the top, the home of the gods
The Sky Turtle
In an infinite universe, what are the chances that something like this doesn't exist?
The High Country, where the witches live
Lots of land up there. Unfortunately, most of it is vertical
Of the three (or four) witches- The (1st) Maiden
She married the king, became queen, and left the coven
The (2nd) Maiden (replacing the 1st)
She's got very good hair, and she can sing harmony with herself!
There are three stages of womanhood- Maiden, Mother, and the other one- and Nanny has a book that tells you how to avoid being any of them!
The (ahem) Other One
Of course, Granny qualifies to be in two of the stages of womanhood, so she rarely admits to being the other one
The King of said High Country
Named after the previous king, and brother to the previous queen's son, but not actually the king's son
'Give the little doggy a sausage? Bark!'
Who'd ever believe a dog could talk? Well, if he eats the rats that feed off of magical waste, why not?
He's the final word in all things
He's the final word in all things- DEATH
