Irish DW Convention October 2009

Sep. 16th, 2008 | 02:57 pm
posted by: sabremeister in discworlddebate

Having been to the UK International Convention 2008 it was decided that there should be an Irish equivalent. As in it was suggested to some Irish people and they took it seriously.

We have an LJ community (idwcon_2009) and a Facebook page, and we know it's going to be in late October 2009 in Co. Clare (so that anybody coming over from Britain can fly into Shannon and already be close to the venue).

So head on over to those pages and have a look, and tell people, and get ready for plenty more news over the coming months.

Does anyone have any idea when Making Money's coming out? I've been sniffing around but so far I haven't actually found a publication date.

Hello there! ^_^ I just got into the Discworld series myself some three, almost four weeks ago. I am sure I went out of order (mom decided it'd be cute and order the books offline out of order) . I started with the book Nightwatch, but that was enough to have me hooked right away. Seriously, I took that thing with me to school even (so I could read it when I had free time). Upon finishing it I have concluded that;

A) I think Sam Vimes is a very interesting character and I would like to learn more about him.

B) Terry Pratchett knows how to write, and write propely in my opinion. There is a sort of slyness to his style of writing.

C) Carcer Dun is a very interesting villian. He wasn't the typical 'ahahaha stabby rip stab stab' serial killer (okay maybe he was a little, okay alot) but there were moments when it was like "hm, he almost seems human" 


Those were the three things I wanted to say, lol. Seems like I am the only person on these communities that likes Carcer. Everywhere else I go it's like 'we shall not mention him', lol.

Hi.

I've decided to join this community based on the facts that, one, I need to join more communities, and two, the Discworld books are the fiction manifestations of God hisself.

My name is Chicken (It isn't really) and I'm a student of sixteen years. On the internet my main pasttime is Roleplaying, (Though I haven't roleplayed much Discworld,) and in real life I spend most of my time reading. And, know, studying. If my parents or teachers ask.

Soyeah. Hello to all.

Currently reading: Monstrous Regiment

posted by: mrkpwnz in discworlddebate

I know this is a bit cheeky posting this but its christmas and I'm soo broke and trapped in an empty flat for the entirity of it :(

I'm selling this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6995097661





It's an issue of Science Fantasy Magazine form 1963 that contains Terry Pratchett's first ever professionally published story, "The Hades Buisness", very rare, the only copy I know off (and I've done some research). I'm very sad to part with it but as I say needs must...

Well, I've hooked another ten people on Discworld. My good? deed for the day.

The community seems to be floundering slightly. I hope it doesn;t die completely.

NEW TOPIC!


I have been rereading (again)The Books, and a thought occured to me:

If Rincewind hadn't rescued the frog from the Rimfall, would the Lady have given him another chance? Would she ven have bothered to save herself? and... Is insinuating yourself into the Game personally even allowable in the Rules?

Am I the only one that refuses to say the Lady's name? I was very young when I first read The Books, and that part left an impression...

(I made a D6 that skipped one and had a seven instead... my DM almost killed me..)

I noticed in rereading what I just wrote that I like elipses (or is it elipsi?) I just finished final exams here, so I have to shut down my computer and go home :)

I hope to post again soon.

Tact and other Nuisances

posted by: yddraiggoch in discworlddebate

When in the course of the discworld events, it becomes neccessary for one species to break the bonds that nind them to thier opressors.........
I am, of course, talking about er.... wait, what am I talking about? Is there actually any particular group on the Disc that needs freeing? They all seem to be rather free, and if they are somewhat opressed (read: Igors), it's because they want to be.

We also need a guild charter, I think. Just because we rock.

I'll write the first bit of the Charter, and you guys fill in the rest....

On this day of June, it being the first, in the year 2004, a new guild is hereby entered upon the rolls of the Discworld's prestigious and pedantic guilds. Here be it knowne that the guild of Discworld Debaters is now an official guild, recognized and legal, in all possible senses of the word.







have fun!

The Hedgehog Song

The Hedgehog Song, v1.5 Reconstructed by Matthew Crosby and alt.fan.pratchett from the Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett


Bestiality sure is a fun thing to do
But I have this to say as a warning to you:
With almost all animals, you can have a ball
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

CHORUS 1: The spines on his back are too sharp for a man
They'll give you a pain in the worst place they can
The result I think you will find will appall:
The hedgehog can never be buggered at all!

Mounting a stallion can often be fun
An elephant too; though he weighs half a ton
Even a mouse (though his hole is quite small)
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

CHORUS 2: The spines on his back are so awful thick
you'll end up with naught but more holes in your prick.
He's so well defended when curled in a ball,
That the hedgehog can never be buggered at all!

Screwing a cow while she goes moo-moo
Will be entertaining to both her and you
Or you might try a tiger, if you have enough gall
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

CHORUS 1

A seal is refreshing, although a bit wet
And a cat or a dog can be more than a pet
Or capture a dove in the dove-cote, an' all,
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

CHORUS 2

You can manage a snake, though its poison might kill
It's amazing how humping a camel will thrill
You can go with a snail if you slow to a crawl
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

CHORUS 1

You can ravish a sloth but it would take all night
With a shark it is faster, but the darned beast might bite
We already mentioned the horse, you recall
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

CHORUS 2

You can roger a skunk if you can stand the smell
Or even an oyster, should he let go of his shell
A troll can be rocky if down you should fall
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

CHORUS 1

For slippery fun, you can cornhole an otter
Or pego a pig after parting his trotters
Or tumble a tapir, though the prospect appall
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

CHORUS 2

For prosimian fun, you can bugger a lemur
To bolster your name as a pervert and schemer
The lemurs cry "Frink!" as a coy mating call
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

CHORUS 1

Antipodean pranks -- you can futter a wombat
Or strive with a 'roo in venereal combat
Or hump a goanna -- go on, do it all
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

CHORUS 2

A moose is amusing, a squid quite confusing
Or try on a rhino if you fancy a bruising,
Or mountin' a mountain goat (careful, don't fall!)
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

CHORUS

You could thrust with a thrush if you fancy a climb,
Or pork a few piglets if you have the time,
A skinhead's pet cat if you don't mind a brawl,
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

CHORUS 2

You might try a fish when you dive in the pool,
Or a giraffe, if you climb on a stool,
Or even the captain of guards on the wall,
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

CHORUS 1






isn't it delightful?

On a separate topic completely.......
Has anyone ever written any Discworld fanfiction? I have yet to experiment with that, given that I have yet to finish my HP series I promised to have done years ago......
I was thinking of writing a story on the backgrounds of the Gods and Godesses, esp. the Lady and Om. What think you?
