  "The Great Wahoonie!"

This is Ankh-Morpork, oldest and greatest and grubbiest of cities.

Ankh-Morpork, jewel of cities, nestles in the heart of the Sto Plains a number of miles upstream from the estuary on the River Ankh. It is actually two cities, proud Ankh and pestilential Morpork, connected by many bridges, the most famous of which is the Brass Bridge. Ankh-Morpork houses the headquarters of most, though not all, of the Discworld guilds and is the centre of commerce for the Sto Plains and the Circle Sea, attracting merchants from far and wide. Not surprisingly, therefore, as a seeker of adventure, you will find yourself in this great city many times in your quest for fame and fortune.

Continuous Improvements

Since the decision was made to model Ankh-Morpork according to "The Streets of Ankh-Morpork" by Stephen Briggs and Terry Pratchett, most of our streets have been more or less autogenerated. The aim of the domain is to replace all the autogenerated text with handcrafted descriptions, as well as adding interesting features and NPC's to populate the streets.

Development Focus

While AM will continue to add projects on a per street and even per feature basis, the general domain focus is now on the area just west of the Shades and the Shades itself. As this is a gigantic enterprise, don't expect any major changes to the area in the near future.

Recent Changes ( more | pre-blog archive )

An update to really difficult letter deliveries. - Sat Dec 8 11:43:23 2018

Frank, the Semior Postman in charge of the dead letter office, has changed the policies in regard to difficult customers somewhat. He will now allow for much less time to deliver these letters, and also give a lesser reward. He hopes that this will allow a greater variety of post office epmloyees to try their hand at hunting down these difficult addresees. Pit.


Musical Mishaps - Sat Sep 29 16:56:45 2018

A prominent Musicians' Guild's member's attempt to write a song regarding her recent love experience went awry when the notes flew off the paper and took shape as Jolene. The musician is said to have secluded to Genua to avoid bumping into the walking reminder.


Sausage Balancing - Wed Aug 22 02:13:27 2018

The sausage market has become saturated with certain varieties of sausage, leading Sam Slager to lower his payments for those types. (The spawn rate of the Klatch terrains was higher than expected, so the missions requiring animals from there were too easy for the reward. After collecting data on how long missions were taking for a few weeks, I've lowered the values for those animals a little.)


Your Input

Suggestions for further additions are always welcome of course. Please do so using the idea command on an appropriate room, NPC or object. If you can't think of something fitting to file the report on, the "Ideas R Us" office opposite the Guild of Architects on Chrononhotonthologos Street might be the place you are looking for.

Pubquiz Machine

Nestled in a pub on Morpork Street is a pubquiz machine. If you have a question that you'd like to be considered for inclusion in the machine you can submit it here once you're signed in with your player account. You can also see what other questions there are already in the machine or have been submitted and are pending so that you don't double-up.

Architects

Architects are players who write descriptions for the generic areas in Ankh-Morpork.

Creating

Ankh-Morpork is always looking for competent creators. If you think this might just be the thing for you, have a chat with the Domain Leader or its Deputies or with any other AM creator.
