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

Clockmakers’ Guild – Dr. Hopkins is secretary. (President unknown.) Members include Jeremy Clockson (Lobsang), Hepzibah Whitlow, and Wilframe Balderton.

Bad Schüschein – Where the first Glass Clock was built. (Simply called Schüschein in The Truth.)

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.

Vieux River – Old (Masculine) River. Literally.

Genua – Main setting of Witches Abroad. Sounds like Genoa. Feels like New Orleans.
