Imagine, if you will, a flat world sitting on the backs of four elephants who hurtle through space balanced on a giant turtle. And now, something hitherto unknown on the Discworld has arrived: a tourist!

Religion is a controversial business in the Discworld. Everyone has their own opinion, and gods come in all shapes and sizes.

Preferably one who won't ask too many questions.
