We join our heroes reaching the great computer of the skies, whereupon Rincewind is promptly plunged into blackness...

When he comes to, with a raging bout of homesickness, Twoflower needles him into staying around to watch the druids put on a ceremony.

The poison on the sickle renders Twoflower stiff as a board and light as a feather. The aged warrior- none other than Cohen the Barbarian -takes Rincewind and the sacrificial maiden to someone who could help.

Meanwhile, Galder learns that the red dot in the sky is a star, many times larger than the Disc and the sun that orbits it, and that the Disc is on a direct collision course. In an attempt to get Rincewind back and get all eight Octavo spells in one place again, Galder hires a tracker...of a sort...

Back with Rincewind, he finds himself and the Luggage over in the land of Death, and manages to sneak Twoflower out of a game he, Death, and three other guests were engaged in.

I do note even with the comments on practicality of a warrior women's outfit, they still gave her bare legs!

Or, said Icon_UK optimistically, pale leggings.

I suspect you're right though.

Hey, the narration was just specifying about her boots. Didn't say anything about her legs.

She still looks a lot like the narration says she isn't. I mean, it says she needs a manicure, a bath, and wouldn't be described with words like 'full,' 'round,' and 'pert.'

I do hope the artist was just told 'draw a barbarian woman in armor' here, because talk about missing the point!

I love that, in the later book "Eric", Rincewind is sent back in time to the creation of the Disc, and initially asks the creator for a sandwich because he's hungry, and the sandwich is egg and cress.

When it came to continuity, Terry Pratchett saved his goddamn receipts.
