Terry seems very keen on these long range continuity nods of late. I feel another thread coming on.

I love most of the characters, probably Moist von Lipwig best, and the whole Unseen University academicals. But the character I can really relate to is Agnes Nitt. I certainly know what it means to have a really thin girl inside waiting to get out ... and a lot of chocolate. A nice personality and good hair - that's totally me.

I love the witches so they'd have to win my vote as my favourites above all - especially Granny.

But there are so many others ... how can you pick just one?
Death is an amazing creation - you like him even though he is Death. I also love the Death of Rats.
Susan is great too - she wants a normal life but keeps getting drawn back into amazing adventures.
Vetinari is a delight - so rich and complex a character, with motives that shift like sands.
Moist and Adorabelle are a wonderful combination.
Can't forget the Librarian or the Luggage! Who wouldn't want a librarian who can climb to the topmost shelves for you or a homocidal piece of luggage that NO ONE is ever going to steal, that will never get lost as it will find you again and that moves itself!
Cohen really kicks those stereotypes of the elderly with his Silver Horde.
Rincewind and Twoflower were a good combo - the 'wizzard' with his endless foreboding hopelessness and Twoflower's wide-eyed optimism.
Ponder Stibbons - because like me he uses big words that sometimes other people do not understand (though I am not as scientifically minded as good old Ponder).
Carrot for his clear ideas about justice.

Find Paul Kidby's website and look at his pictures of Rincewind. I think they are the most accurate.

I think Ralf Little might have been a better choice for the role of Rincewind

but I think Sean Astin wasn't well cast as Twoflower :?
Masi Oka for me is the most obvious person to play Twoflower

balls I put this in the wrong thread I'll put a link up to this post in the right thread

You should meet the real Hodges. He's a real character.

I've met him a few times. He goes to a lot of the events. The first time I went to an event, someone said - "there's Dave Hodges. Be careful, he'll try to sell you a copy of his book. :lol: I have a particular memory of a Wadfest camping weekend where several people (including Dave) had had a lot to drink. I saw this view of him walking across a field with his trousers around his ankles. :lol: I did a Maladict the following morning and made him an espresso with my little coffee pot.

He's a real character and has dozens of stories to tell.

Here's a webpage about him. WARNING! CONTAINS PHOTOS (albeit somewhat small ones) :lol:

He turned up to Hogwatch last year, first time in a while I had seen him. :mrgreen:
