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.

Cape Terror – To get by boat from Ankh-Morpork to places like Ghat, Genua, and Brindisi, you must go around this fearsome cape.

Carters’ and Drovers’ Guild – They complained a lot about the (new) traffic division of the Watch. (Probably justified in doing so.)
