Dicing with the Gods – Sean McKenzie

Meet Grug Smash. Grug not so smart. Then Grug find magic amulet.

Grug Smash is a barbarian adventurer, and he’s happy that way. He’s lived his life one mission and one tankard of ale at a time, doing his best to live up to his name and smash as much as one barbarian can.

When Grug stumbles upon a magical amulet that boosts intelligence, his simple world begins to fall apart. He realizes that his life, his identity, is little more than a poorly-written backstory, and the gods themselves may be playing games with actions and existence.

As Grug’s world crashes down around him, he must battle a sorcerer intent on ruling the world, wrestle with an inability to understand his past, and contend with the gods, who seem to have taken a direct interest in his life.

What’s Grug to do when there’s nothing to smash?
