At the University of California, Escondido, no one would guess that freshman Shesh Maccabee is a hard-core gamer - and in recovery to boot, following a court order, a wireless ban, and months of therapy (all because of one little seven-day Internet cafe episode). His friend Mike - who personally prefers Japanese-console RPGs - is tasked with keeping Shesh far away from any computer with access to World of Warfare.
Everything's going according to plan - until a Ren Faire fangirl introduces them to the campus gaming club, where they meet Theodore, a fanatical tabletop game master whose single goal in life is to run the greatest Mages & Monsters game in the world. And there just happens to be room for two more players. Soon Shesh and Mike are dragged into the dungeon of hard-core gaming - and cops, baboon men, Sri Lankan cave roaches, and Gothemon card collectors converge in the zaniest adventure that ever involved twenty-sided dice!
