The series is set in a fictional world known as Discworld. The Discworld is a flat disc, which rests on the backs of 4 elephants. The elephants rest on the back of a huge turtle named Great A’Tuin. The series deals with the political, scientific and cultural issues of the society in a comic and satirical manner. Terry Pratchett has become UK’s best-selling author with the success of the Discworld series as most of his novels have topped The Sunday Times bestseller list. The series has sold more than 80 million copies in different countries of the world and in 37 different languages. The series is so popular among the masses that a number of adaptations have been made, including graphic novels, computer games and television series. The initial novels in the series include ‘The color of Magic’ published in 1983 and ‘The Light Fantastic’ published in 1986. The main characters of the series are as follows:


Rincewind is the central character of the Discworld series. He is often described as a zero by the scholars of the Unseen University as he has failed as a student. He lives in the city of Ankh-Morpak with other wizards and is often see targeted by a number of communities, who try to kill him. In spite of all the attacks on him, Rinsewind is still alive because even though he is born as a wizard, his body is that of a long-distance sprinter. As a result, he always keeps running away from others. Rincewind is famous in turning the minor problems into major ones while trying to solve them.

Blind Hugh is a beggar. He often visits the Pearl Dock at the Morpork docks along with Cripple Wa. At the dock, he witnesses Twoflower disembarking a merchant ship.

Broadman is the owner of the Broke Drum. He buys an inn-sewer-ants-polly-sea from Twoflower when he arrives in Ankh-Morpork. He accidently burns himself while trying to burn the Broken Drum, not realizing that he was inside it.

Cripple Wa is also a beggar who visits the Pearl Dock along with Blind Hugh. He informs the thief Ymor about the disembarking of a trader ship by Twoflower containing large amounts of gold.

Black Zenell is one of the best known heroes of the Discworld. Twoflower often expresses his desire to meet the heroes while visiting the city of Ankh-Morpork. Rincewind spreads the rumor about the death of Black Zenell as he gets paid huge amount of gold to do so.

Weasel is a barbarian hero and often partners with Bravd. When the city of Ankh-Morpork catches fire, he along with Bravd remain outside watching it burn and betting on the source of the explosion. Later, he comes to know about the fire in the city from Rincewind and Twoflower.

Twoflower is an inhabitant of Agatean Empire. He is fond of dragons since his childhood even though his sister has told him about the nonexistence of dragons. He hires Rincewind as his guide after arriving in Ankh-Morpork. He escapes the city with the help of Rincewind when assassins try to capture him for money. Twoflower wears glasses and often runs into danger. Rincewind believed that he had an IQ similar to that of a pigeon.

Tethis is a native of Bathys, who hunts wild animals. He falls off the edge of Bathys, freezes solid and lands in Discworld after drifting through space. He is captured and made a slave by the Krullians.

Terton works as a lengthman of the Circumference. His hut gets destructed by the Luggage, which gets caught in his part of the Circumference. Somehow, he survives and is rescued by a salvage fleet. Later, he escapes Krull by hijacking a lens and makes his way to the Great Nef which is quite uncomfortable for him.

Bravd is a barbarian hero and often partners with Weasel. He remains outside the city of Ank-Morpork when it catches fire. He plays an important role in the first novel of the series and has the habit of betting against Weasel.

In the first novel of the series, ‘The Color of Magic’, the writer introduces the central characters Rincewind, Twoflower and describes the city of Ankh-Morpork. Rincewind is shown as a cynical and incompetent wizard. He meets Twoflower and becomes his guide. Later, the two flee the city and keep journeying around the Discworld, not knowing that their movements are controlled by the Gods. In the later part of the novel, Rincewind and Twoflower visit the Bel-Shamharoth temple and meet Hrun. They move ahead to the upside-down mountains of Wymberg, which is falsely believed to be the home of dragons. They are rescued by Tethis on the edge of the Disc and are taken to the Krullians. The Krullians develop a capsule to go over the edge of the Discworld and find out the gender of the giant turtle, Great A’Tuin. Rincewind and Twoflower are left to be sacrificed, but they capture the capsule and get launched off the Discworld. The novel was very successful and enjoyed by all the readers worldwide, It was adapted into a graphic novel by Steven Ross and Scott Rockwell in 1992. A television series was also made based on the novel by the Sky One and Mob Film Company. The role of Rincewind was played by Sir David Jason whereas Sean Astin and Christopher Lee played the roles of Twoflower and Death respectively. The series was aired in 2008. The novel series was also developed into a computer game in the year 1986.

The second novel of the series, The Light Fantastic starts from where the first part had ended. When Rincewind falls from the edge of the Discworld, he is saved by the Octavo magic book and thrown back in the Discworld. The wizards find the Discworld is about to get destroyed. The only way to stop it is by reading the eight spells of the Octavo, which are considered to be the most powerful spells. One of the spells is hidden in the head of Rincewind. Hence, the other wizards try to capture and kill him. Rincewind escapes and meets Twoflower again. Both start to the new course set by the giant turtle that leads into a red star having eight moons. Rincewind escapes death several times. Finally, he becomes successful in reading out loud the eight spells of Octavo and becomes powerful. The eight moons crack open to reveal tiny world-turles which follow the giant turtle to a new course away from the star. The Octavo gets eaten by the Luggage and Rincewind decides to part ways with Twoflower, who decides to go back home and leave the Luggage with Rincewind as a gift. The novel was made into a graphic novel in 1993 and was published by Corgi. A television series was also made by the same production house which adapted the first novel. Actor David Bradley played the role of Cohen the Barbarian whereas Tim Curry played Trymon. The other characters were played by the same actors who acted in the adaptation of the first novel.
