Reading this right now. Extremely funny.
Nice little TR reference...

plot summary: Cohen the Barbarian and his Silver Horde (geriatric barbarian heroes) are on their way to return the gift of fire to the gods. The Wizards must stop them because the fate of the Discworld hangs in the balance...On their way to mountain where the gods reside, Cohen and company meet up with Vena the Raven Haired (geriatric she-barbarian).
"Funny, really" said Vena. "All my life I've gone adventuring with old maps
found in old tombs and so on, and I never ever worried about where they came from.
It's one of those things you never think about, like who leaves
all the weapons and keys and medicine kits lying around in the unexplored dungeons."

Hehe. Always good to see the old girl in some other venue. Reckon she's reach archetype status.

Nice catch Deekman, I always love Pratchett's dangling pop culture out there for his characters to nibble on. ;)
