Pyramids Places – Chronologic

Most of the places in this chronological list are in Ankh-Morpork, even though the bulk of the story in Pyramids takes place in Djelibeybi. To find them in alphabetical order, see this list.

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

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.

Djel (river) – Besides the pyramids, the main feature of the land of Djelibeybi…and almost the same dimensions as the country itself…most of the time.

Assassins’ Guild – Headquarters for the members of the Assassins’ Guild in Ankh-Morpork. Best not to know its exact location.

Filigree Street – Forms a T with Short Street at the latter’s turnwise end. The Broken / Mended Drum is located at this intersection.

Street of Book-keepers – In Ankh-Morpork. Included in Mericet’s examination directions to Teppic.

Audit Alley – Intersects the Street of Book-keepers in Ankh-Morpork. Where Mericet would meet Teppic during his assassins examination.

Scorpion House – A student house of the Assassin’s Guild. Beaten by Teppic’s team in the Wallgame finals.

Young Men’s Reformed-Cultists-of-the-Ichor-God-Bel-Shamharoth Association – They have a gym. Albert stays there betimes.

Temple of Blind Io – One of these is in Sto Lat. Another is in Ankh-Morpork.

Tin Lid Alley – In Ankh-Morpork. Towards which Teppic fell because someone had removed the plank bridge spanning it. Location of the Musicians’ Guild.

Djelibeybi – Literally, “Child of the Djel”. Land of the pyramids. Home of Teppic and his ancestors.

Tsort – Location of the Valley of Tsort and thus the Great Pyramid of Tsort. Not to be confused with the Great Pyramid of Djelibeybi.

Ephebe – Located across the Djel (or Djelibeybi, if you prefer) from Tsort. Home of philosophers.

Viper House – Teppic’s student house in the Assassin’s Guild. Grunworth Nivor is its headmaster.

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.

Haberdashers’ Tower – In Ankh-Morpork. Part of the course Chidder had to run in his assassins examination.

Brass Bridge – One of several bridges in Ankh-Morpork. Probably made mostly of brass or something that looks like it.

Smugglers’ Guild – One of the many organizations authorized by the Patrician.

Guild of Embalmers and Allied Trades – Probably only had members in Djelibeybi.

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.

Howandaland – This spelling, first mentioned in Wyrd Sisters, is the location of a hurricane, as noted by Death. It may or may not be the Unnamed Continent in the center of Klatch. Possibly a misspelling of Howondaland.

Ptaclusp Associates, Necropolitan Builders to the Dynasties– Ptaclusp’s business for building pyramids and such. His twins – Ptaclusp IIa and IIb also worked there.

Guild of Plumbers and Dunnikindivers – In Ankh-Morpork. The latter built and cleaned cesspits, in case you really wanted to know.
