An illustrated tale, somewhat shorter than usual, of the Discworld. Involving Cohen the Barbarian, Rincewind, and Carrot.
Cohen and his Silver Horde set out, kidnapping a minstrel, to return fire to the gods. The Counterweight Continent sent word by albatross to Ankh-Morpork, where, they figure, they can do something about it.
One thing they can do is figure out that the heroes' plan would destroy the Discworld in minutes.
The resulting story involves rubies, Cohen and the Silver Horde applying the Code to a fight they face, Lord Vetinari pointing out the details of how heroes act, a stowaway, the moon, the sight of the elephants, the question of cheating Fate, and much more.
