Myth-ion Improbable ...
Apprentice magician Skeeve, his scaly mentor Aahz and beautiful ex-assassin Tananda are back. This time they’re treasure hunting in a dimension that combines the Wild West with the vampire-cursed hills of Transylvania—where gold is common as dirt and danger lurks behind every sagebrush.
“Aahz,” I said, holding out a folded piece of parchment to him, “I think you should take a look at this.”
“And just what is that?”
“Well,” I said, glancing at the parchment in my hand, “this is a map to a golden cow that lives in a golden palace and gives gold-laced milk.”
Aahz slowly turned to stare at me, his eyes slit as if he were trying to figure out if I was actually joking or not. Then, in two steps, he was in front of me, snatching the map from my grasp.
“So there really is such a golden beast?” I asked while he studied the paper.
“Not for sure.”
“So we’re going to check it out?”
He looked down at the map in his hand, then folded it and stuffed it in his pocket.
“I’ll be back in an hour.”
“Wait!” I shouted. “You can’t go looking for it without me.”
“I’m not,” Aahz said. “Be ready to go. One hour. And the dragon doesn’t come with us.”
With that Aahz was gone, vanished off to another dimension with a faint BAMPF.
Something M.Y.T.H. Inc. ...
Revolution is in the air. The king’s court sorcerer is being eyed with suspicion, and things are not well in the kingdom for our heroes, Skeeve and Aahz.
Word on the street is that the kingdom is under the control of a mighty sorcerer. It’s obvious that this magician dabbles in the black arts: He consorts with demons. He has a dragon for a pet. He’s connected to the criminal underground, trading political influence for their assistance in keeping the populace under control.
For most citizens, all this could be overlooked, except that this villain has committed the greatest crime possible: he’s raised taxes! Clearly something has to be done! The citizens are beginning to ponder and mutter, both individually and in groups, about how this tyrant can be brought down. And while they vary greatly in skill and intelligence, certainly the sheer volume of them virtually ensures the eventual downfall of the scoundrel that’s currently growing fat off the kingdom ...
... the man called Skeeve the Great!
