The golems are thing that do work for people. They can work all day and all night and do not need food, water or wages. Some of the golems have started to go off at night time and some are even destroying themselves. The people of Ankh Morpork are starting to dislike them and break them. They cannot usually fight back because of the words in their head and so they are easy to destroy, but some of the golems are starting to fight back.

The patrician has been poisoned with arsenic. No one knows where it is coming from and it is being administered to him in small amount regularly. He is constantly ill and has changed room and everything has been replaced, but he is still sick. While the patrician is sick some nobles are looking for a replacement. They find out that there is an Earl of Ankh somewhere in the city and try to contact him. There is also a new dwarf in the City Watch and she is a woman. It is rare for a dwarf woman to say she is a woman, or make it public. Cheery is an alchemist and she does all of the scientific work for the watch. The rats are also getting sick in the tunnels under the city because they have been poisoned by something and they are also poisoning people who eat the rats.
