Discworld Maps

Have any of you here got the Discworld maps? I think they are brilliant. :D

Nanny Ogg's Cook Book is an amusing read too & you can make the recipes.
Best wishes,

Assuming you're still not a troll :wink: , I have the Ankh-Morpork and Discworld maps. I think there's more than a few people here who will have multiple copies of each, though.

Keep meaning to pick up Nanny Ogg's Cookbook, but haven't got round to it. :(

...in fact I noticed on Second Life there's a group of people trying to build Ankh-Morpork using the map as a guide. I don't have the link handy, but I think I posted it somewhere on these forums.

*edit* - found it http://slurl.com/secondlife/Ankh%20Morpork/91/96/40

I don't think so, no, flesh & blood, me :D
You should get the cook book, it's fun. :D

Sadly my pc refuses to let me in your link. But I'll try again later. Bye for now.

I love cooking and have tried lots of recipes from the cookbook. Special Secret Sauce is especially good with ice cream. And Wow-wow sauce with a good stake is heaven!

By the way, there seems to be an error in the Dried Frog Pills recipe. It says 30 g icing sugar, but it probably should be 300g. There was some discussion of this in another forum some time ago, and a lot of people (me included) said that the recipe wont work with only 30g.

Yup, I´ve got the map of A-M and the map of Discworld.

I have the Cookbook also, but with my cooking abilities...I haven´t even tried any recipe :wink:

I've got all the maps.

I think they should do new editions of the Discworld map and the Map of Ankh-Morpork. There's been loads of books since they were made and there's a lot of new stuff to add to them.

Just gave me a funny thought, imagine an imp-powered sat-nav system on the Disc?
Vimes wouldn't need one of course, but Sybil would probably still buy him one. That'd be an interesting sight to see. :lol:

couple of years ago i was saving up to buy my misses a present for her birthday and was hiding it in the forementioned cookbook when my misses thought it would be good to try one of the recipes and found the £300 she went spare until she found out what it was for. she said it was my own fault for cooking the books :lol: :lol:

I am not a good cook, in fact I hate to cook, but I did enjoy reading it.

I'll have to try some of the recipes. They sound fun Katariina.

I like the idea of an imp powered sat nav too, Jinx

Your post gave me a chuckle, Chris.

I like the map of Death's Domain. I also want his horse, I love Binky.
Best wishes,

I have the cookbook, and loved reading it, but I haven't tried any of the recepies.
I also have all the maps (at least in theory- I've let someone borrow the Discworld map a long time ago, and haven't seen it since). I agree with Katariina, that the Discworld and (especially) Ankh Morpork ones could probably do with new versions.
