The problem with fighting death is that you will eventually lose. Eric has provoked the fury of no fewer than three grim reapers and now they're after his life. Leading the charge is his old foe, Gruffle. Flanked by an army of ghosts and nature spirits, and supported by Lord Death himself, Gruffle's victory is guaranteed. Eric's only hope of survival is to transcend the limitations of both mortality and magecraft and fight the hostile gods as an equal. Chaotic deities support him in his endeavor but they might be a greater danger than the reapers.
