Hey captainsmog - I hope you don't mind that I've posted links to your websites HERE on the Cunning Artificer's board. Lots of fans of Lego and Discworld there as well. :wink:

I don't mind at all. On the contrary: I am even flattered! :oops:

SPOILER
I'm currently finishing the iconograph's interior and already working
on the library and, of course... the librarian! (I've ordered some
special parts for this fellow ;-) Then, the Octavo and it's secured room.

I forgot to tell how I was introduced to Discworld:

A friend of mine introduced me to pratchett's world.
He told me it was so wonderful and funny that I thought I should
buy the first novel and try it. But as nothing goes exactly as you
want, I bought Good Omens first. :lol:
It was so good and I laughed so much that I began the Discworld shortly after that.

Pratchett helped me not to feel depressed when I worked for very,
very bad employers (mobbing and so on...).
I am thus really attached to Discworld (emotionally).

I hope you don't need an Aspirin, reading this post... :roll:

Not at all! :) I think there are a lot of us here who Terry has helped through bad times. Discworld is a great place to escape to when Planet Earth gets too much. :wink:

Well said, Tony, well said.
I am emotionally attached to Discworld, because it gives me all the inspiration I need. I read a few pages of a Discworld book and there they are, the ideas flying through the window and hitting me :D

LOL you need a good sturdy butterfly net and a good screen dear. :lol:

Oh, and tell them to form an orderly queue... none of this "Me First, :smack: NO ME" stuff.
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

It is annoying when I read and find myself thinking about my own story. Then I usually have to go back nearly a page, until I find the part where I started drifting off...

Actually, I so like the Discworld that I'm preparing
to lead a roleplay game in this (flat) universe. :D
(I play RPG with some friends of mine since a long time.)

I was so lucky to find it in french on the web! Now I just have to print only... 314 pages! :shock:

By the way, I received the parts for the librarian... :wink:

The finished iconograph is now in my flickr gallery. :D

I've almost finished a little Agathean scene (with a water buffalo).
I did it for my Brother-in-law who's currently travelling in China. :wink:

Then I'll work on the library, the Octavo and the B.S. Johnson organ.
