Here's a chance to exercise your imagination and come up with an interesting plot for a Discworld book. It could be one line long, or more detailed like mine.
(Any connection between events in the following story synopsis and events on Roundworld is purely coincidental.)
Lord Rust and his rich cronies in the fat industry hatch a plan to invade and occupy Uberworld, thus gaining control of the fifth elephant fat deposits buried there.
However, they state that without a major incident of epic proportions their plan will take a long time to come to fruition.
They send an open letter to the Patrician recommending the overthrow of the Low King of Uberworld. The Patrician ignores it.
In an election, they win through cheating and Lord Rust becomes the new Patrician. His cronies are given high positions in the new Government.
Nine months after taking office, by sheer coincidence, a major incident of epic proportions occurs.
18 Klatchian terrorists (not Uberworld dwarfs) hijack some horses and carts and simultaneously ram them into the Ankh-Morpork Opera House.
An hour later the Opera House collapses at freefall speed into its own footprint, killing a lot of people.
William De Worde's house, although not hit by a horse and cart, also collapses at freefall speed and William De Worde is killed.
The Ankh-Morpork Times is taken over by Lord Rust's cronies, changes its name to "Vixen News", and becomes a propaganda mouthpiece for the administration.
Lord Rust blames the Low King of Uberworld for the attack.
Lord Rust then states categorically that the Low King of Uberworld has developed an evil weapon and must be stopped.
The citizens of Ankh-Morpork are brainwashed into supporting an invasion of Uberworld.
Uberworld is invaded and occupied, the Low King executed and the fat deposits of Uberworld are now under control of the Ankh-Morpork fat industry. No trace whatsoever is found of the evil weapon.
The dwarfs are not too happy about having their country occupied so start an insurgency against the occupiers which, so far, has lasted for seven years. A lot of dwarfs and Ankh-Morpork soldiers are killed.
Because Ankh-Morpork had no money to pay for the war and occupation, it has to borrow heavily from neighbouring countries.
This causes the Ankh-Morpork economy to collapse, creating mass unemployment.
Eventually the people of Ankh-Morpork see through Lord Rust and he is voted out of office, with Captain Carrot becoming the new Patrician.
Faced with an unpopular occupation, a failing economy, a falling Dollar, huge debts and a right wing media, can Patician Carrot help Ankh-Morpork to recover from its self-inflicted problems?
Yes, he can......maybe?
"Disliking Carrot would be like kicking a puppy."
"You kicked a puppy," Lobsang said accusingly.
