Must agree with the others. This is absolutely great representations of soooo many games. I have been this ref, and much to my chagrin, I have probably been the Warrior or the Jester as well.

This is must read for any referee, potential ref or gamer with aspirations. Most gamers will find it painfully accurate...and I'm sure some will take umbrage about how "Their Character" is treated.

Already buying a copy of this for my oldest son!

This is a must-read for RPGers. Jonny Nexus, author of the now-defunct criticalmiss online 'zine, is one of the funniest authors in the RPG space.

The novel tells the tale of a group of gods sitting around a table playing a role-playing game. Each of the gods lampoons a player archetype with stinging accuracy. The twist to the story is the fact that what these gods imagine becomes reality, and all the changes, do-overs and metagaming have mind-numbing consequences in the PCs' world.

I found myself laughing out loud more than once.

Oh good lord. Ok, I want to know how long Johnny Nexus as been planting bugs in my gaming group! Every one of the gods (players) in this is an archetype that most gamers will have played with (and if you've ever been Lord Warrior I hope you got yours next game along!) and may find embarrassingly familiar.

The structure of the story works extremely well, flicking back and forth between the gaming group and the hapless mortals they are manipulating for their own amusement; the use of "I didn't actually DO that" moments is well judged, with a bizarre knockon effect to the game world. The potions sequence on the cliff had me giggling out loud: I would NOT recommend reading this on public transport.

This is hysterical. Just buy it.
