Discworld – First mentioned in Equal Rites, this is the place where it all hits the…er…takes place.

Ramtop Mountains – One of the main mountain ranges Hubward.

Bad Ass – The small village in Lancre where the wizard Drum Billet “christens” the baby girl, Eskarina Smith, a wizard – a thing which is not done, except when it is.

Crack Peak – A locale, probably in the Ramtops, where there may be a family that can turn themselves into wolves. But probably not.

Rim Ocean – The body of water that goes all around the edge of the Discworld. It falls over the edge causing the Rimfall and sometimes the Rimbow.

Unseen University – The home of the Disc’s wizards, a very magical place where magic is almost never used, and for good reason. Known as UU, for short. Sometimes misspelled, Unesene.

Ohulan Cutash – The “big city”, if you live in Bad Ass. Not that many people have heard of it.

Ankh-Morpork – The largest city on the Disc where much of the action in the Discworld series takes place. Ruled by the Patrician. Home of Unseen University.

Circle Sea – The main body of water separating the continents of the Disc. Probably responsible for preventing more wars than have already been fought.

Fiddler’s Riddle, The – A tavern, run by Skiller, once visited by Esk Smith. Skiller later wished she hadn’t.

Ankh (River) – That which divides Ankh the city from Morpork. You can usually walk on the surface of the Ankh, even if you’re not a deity.

Zemphis – A walled town probably similar to our own Memphis (Egypt).

Sto Lat – A small city in the Sto Plains, first mentioned in passing in Equal Rites. Home of King Olerve and Princess Keli.

Pseudopolis – A major city on the Disc. In The Colour of Magic, Death is headed there because of the white plague striking the city.

Paps of Scilla – Eight rocky peaks through which you pass when three days from Zemphis. Draw your own conclusion as to why there were eight.

Dungeon Dimensions – Where all the demons (and much worse) live.

Shades, The – A section of Ankh-Morpork that is darker (in more ways than one) than it sounds.

Guild of Thieves, Cutpurses, Housebreakers and Allied Trades – An organization, first encountered in Equal Rites, perhaps known later as simply the Guild of Thieves or Thieves’ Guild.

Cori Celesti – 10-mile high mountain at the Hub of the Disc. Home to the gods of Dunmanifestin. Possible translation: Heart of heaven.

Klatch (Klatchistan) – Land of jungles. Also the source of the phrase, “Pardon my Klatchian.”

Brass Neck – Birthplace of Archchancellor Cutangle, next valley over from Bad Ass.

Leaping Mountain – Near Brass Neck, where Archchancellor Cutangle’s father, Acktur, once lived.

Gormenghast – Mentioned only in passing as being inconsequential in stature compared to UU.
