Thief of Time

It’s going to be Monday forever. No-one will live. No-one will die...

TIME has run out. Literally. Leaving her two sons to manage the ebb and flow of time on the Discworld. The only problem is, one of them is forever trying to steal it, and the other is trying to make it tick. Well what else should a neglectful mother expect when she has left one of her “twins” with the Guild of Thieves and the other with the Guild of Clockmakers?

Not to worry, the Thief (Lobsang) has the History Monks to help him, and the Clockmaker (Jeremy) has the Auditors to help him.

It is the History Monk’s job to store time and pump it from the places where it’s wasted - like underwater (I mean, how much time does a codfish really need?) to places like cities, where there’s never enough time for anyone. These are the people who will lead Lobsang on his quest to save time.

But you know teenagers! One of them is always bound to fall into the wrong crowd. Jeremy’s reputation as a clockmaker has spread far and wide. It has attracted the attention of the Auditors. Auditors are tidy. They believe that everything has its place in time and space and that it should remain there. Forever. With Jeremy’s help they can stop time by building the world’s only truly accurate clock. That should stop those pesky humans who don’t seem to understand schedules and time management schemes.

The only thing that the Auditors are not reckoning on is that Lobsang has more than the History Monks to help him. He has heroes!

If there’s anything the Discworld is good at, it’s assembling a full cast of heroes, even if they are the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. (well five, actually, if you count the one who left before they were famous).

Sound complicated? Well that’s life isn’t it? (and time).

Come and see if you can sort it all out. If you can’t, then it doesn’t matter as long as you LOL (the real weapon of choice of any self-respecting hero)
