Events on the Discworld have been chronicled in the best-selling works of Terry Pratchett. Fans have learned of the adventures of Rincewind the incompetent wizard, Granny Weatherwax the witch (known to trolls as "She Who Must Be Avoided"), Captain Carrot the six-foot dwarf, Archchancellor Ridcully, Susan Sto Helit (granddaughter of Death), and a cast of strange and unique characters. The Discworld Roleplaying Game is not a new edition of Discworld - it's a reprint. By changing the name and adding the logo, we're making it even clearer than before that this is a complete roleplaying game. You need no other books to play. Making the title begin with "Discworld" will make it easier for series fans to find it, too.
The world is flat. It rests on the back of four giant elephants, who in turn stand on the back of great A'Tuin, the only turtle to form the basis of an entire branch of astrophysics.
