With the dracolich defeated, the Nettlers (and Taeros) are ready to move on to their final quest: retrieving the diadem of the Dryads from the dreaded Ghost King! However, before they can set out for the Haunted Heath, old friends return to bring them dire news. Pendrel’s sister, a healer working for the rebels, reports that Nettle has been overrun by King William’s forces, and that the shattered rebel leadership have an apocalyptic plan to transform their mother into a goddess of destruction. Brinton, who has communed and become one with Arachnus, returns from the World Wide Web imbued with the knowledge that someone is distributing ancient rituals of apotheosis, and the entire pantheon is now under assault from mortal usurpers. With the rebellion in shambles and even the gods running scared, will the group be able to save Nettle–and the rest of the kingdom–from total annihilation? And what has the Ghost King to do with any of this?
Are you ready for the most awesome, the most intense, the most bone-shattering Rag-NERD-rok Fiasco to date? Well, here it comes, brother! The King and The Duke used to be the tag-team stars of the FUCW, back before the feud that split their promotion into two rival groups. Now, with their separate franchises flagging, the two showrunners decide a merger is necessary, but they only have the funds to keep one of their two rosters on staff. Their star performers, The Prince and The Jester, will do whatever it takes to make the cut. The wild card in this bout-to-end-all-bouts is a former wrestler turned stagehand who works for both promotions, a man who suffered a career-ending injury and now has a score to settle with just about everybody. Five characters will enter the ring, but only one will emerge as the FUCW pro wrestling star of the Dakotas! Find out who gets pinned, who taps out, and who reigns supreme in this week’s Fiasco! (Only $9.95!)
