Favourite Continunty Nod

Postby SimonAtford » Wed Dec 12, 2012 12:30 pm

As defined by TV Tropes:

A continuity nod is a reference to some aspect in a series' past or an occurrence within the universe. The nod is not so much a major plot point, but more of a tilt of the hat to the fans that may know these little details.

Sir Terry seems quite on these in the more recent books. My favourite has to be Rincewind taking his sock off in Unseen Academicals (book 37) as nod to the climax of Sourcery (book 5). Talk about playing the long game.
Keep calm and prepare to hack!



Carry on!

I rather like the two elephants in the cellar of the Opera House in Maskerade. Rumor has it that they are a nod to the thousand elephants in Moving Pictures.
