Welcome to Ankh-Morpork, City of One Thousand Surprises!

The Ankh-Morpork Merchants' Guild takes great pleasure in welcoming you to the twin cities of Ankh-Morpork, The Big Wahooni (pop. 1,000,000). According to legend, Ankh-Morpork was founded by two orphaned brothers who were in fact found and suckled by a hippopotamus (lit. orijeple, although some historians hold that this is a mistranslation of orijaple, a type of glass-fronted drinks cabinet). More popular legend has it that at some earlier point in time time a group of wise men survived a flood sent by the gods by building a huge boat, and taking two of every type of animal then existing on the Disc. After some weeks the manure weighed the boat low in the water so they tipped it over the side and called it Ankh-Morpork.

Points of Interest:

Discworld is a one-night game set in Ankh-Morpork on Terry Pratchett's Discworld.
