.. and Rincewind, as the "eternal coward", but at the same time an example of necessary heroism if there's no way to run.

Although, if by chance or celestial interference or a malfunction in L-Space I would take the place of a character on the DW, I hope I'd come up as the Librarian. Ook!

Good choices! I like Vetinari too, but it's only a dream to expect such interest and care in the city in a "real" politician :?

And wise choice of being the Librarian, since it seems to me he's the one who is truly happy and often the only one who understands what's really going on...

There's too many..... I can't think of any.
But if i had too choose just one, then i'd probably say...... Tiffany or Nanny Ogg. I like the witches more than the city in general, but Vimes, Angua, Dorfl and Moist come in a close second.(or third, or fourth.)

After finally ‘’listening’’ to some Discworld books my favourite character is Death. Over the next few months this list will probably be added to but I can’t see the ever cheerful Death being replaced.

Death, cos he's so droll; Rincewind, cos he's just - Rincewind; all the Nac mac Feegle, I just love a real drag out fight, and loads of whisky for afters; Greebo, cos he's such an anarchist; the Librarian, as I love books; oh, all of them actually!

I have three beloved characters that make my life. First is Jonathan Teatime and always be the first for his insanity. Moist von Lipwig and Vetinari are second. As you see, I chose Moist as my alter ego (not only on this site) and Vetinari...just perfect...

Should we worry about Moist do you think - he's got an insane psychopath, a petty crook and a very devious manipulator as his favourite characters - I suggest everyone is VERY polite to him :lol:

Oh b*gger! On another thread I've just advised him to dump his girlfriend and said I fancied his mother. :oops:

What you should do is dump your girlfiend and find a new one with a better sense of humour.

I like the sound of your mother though.
