    In a world full to bursting with would-be heroes, Jim couldn't be less interested in saving the day. His fireballs fizzle. He's awfully grumpy. Plus, he's been dead for about 60 years. When a renegade necromancer wrenches him from eternal slumber and into a world gone terribly, bizarrely wrong, all Jim wants is to find a way to die properly, once and for all. On his side, he's got a few shambling corpses, an inept thief, and a powerful death wish. But he's up against tough odds....

    Story

    As a fan of Zero Punctuation, I went into Mogworld thinking I knew what to expect: a parody full of whip-sharp language and colorful similes. What I didn't expect was the honestly brilliant metanarritive about how video games are made, played, and perceived, woven into an unusual but engaging adventure story. The plot was refreshingly original, the characters were distinct and memorable, and the world felt right, just familiar enough to me, as someone who's played a lot of sword and sorcery RPGs. It was definitely the right choice to have Yahtzee narrate the story, because he imbues it with so much personality. Overall, a joy to listen to. Five stars.
