octophobia? Not sure about that, phobias are irrational, or irrationally intense fears, discworld inhabitants have good reason to fear 7a! 17:20, 4 August 2009 (UTC)


So, can wizards say ate? Because I was trying not to say eight for a day and I said ate... so now I want to know. ^_^ Song of the Dragon 23:35, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

The oddity of UA

Throughout the entire series it has been 7a. Cue Unseen Academicals where, all of a sudden, it's 7b. Explanation?--LilMaibe 15:27, 23 June 2012 (CEST)

Do you have a page number? Old Dickens 15:54, 23 June 2012 (CEST)
Not certain if it actually was said IN the book (and if possibly during the match), but it's on the cards. Rincewind's number is 7b instead of 7a.--LilMaibe 18:16, 23 June 2012 (CEST)
If this is the Jolly Sailor Cigarettes UA tie-in football cards (and yes, it is 7b) then it arises several questions:
A) Are these canon? The characters of J. W. Rickett and Jimmy Wilkins are on the cards but not in the books.
B) Was pterry involved in the making? There are direct references to Bernard Pearson and Paul Kidby, but none to Terry Pratchett, so it is reasonable to assume that the Discworld Emporium and not Terry wrote the player descriptions.--Stanley Howler 19:04, 23 June 2012 (CEST)
In either case I'd say they would know. It's just odd. And even if the emporium wrote the descriptions (and put a typo on Ponder's card), Sir Terry would still have had to give his OK on the text. Curious.--LilMaibe 20:38, 23 June 2012 (CEST)
