Many view "hitting rock bottom" as a foundation on which to rebuild one's life, a place from which one can only ascend. Gamers know to search for a secret door leading down to the sewer.

Players of C&C know the basic rule of "never split the party" however that never accounted for being stuck in a magical world where death can be a very real thing and the chance of going home getting smaller. So after the last book our main characters go their separate ways facing their own struggles, returning to familiar places, and reuniting with past characters as they try to help one of their own.

Tim and his friends find out the hard way that you shouldn't question the game master, and you shouldn't make fun of his cape. One minute, they're drinking away the dreariness of their lives, escaping into a fantasy game and laughing their asses off. The next minute, they're in a horse-drawn cart surrounded by soldiers pointing crossbows at them.

A hilarious story of a group of nerds stuck in an unknown magical world that pokes fun of fantasy tropes and the mechanics of a popular tabletop game while being an exciting adventure tale all on its own.
