Type: Rincewind

EQUAL RITES...
The last thing the wizard Drum Billet did before Death laid a bony hand on his shoulder, was to pass on his staff of power to the eighth son of an eighth son.

Guards!Guards!
"This is where the dragons went. They lie... not dead, not asleep, but... dormant. And although the space they occupy isn't like normal space, neverhteless they are packed in tightly.

ERIC...
Eric is the Discworlds only demonology hacker.

Pity he's not very good at it.

All he wants is his three wishes granted.Nothing fancy-to be immortal, rule the world, have the most beautiful woman in the world fall madly in love with him.The usual stuff.

But instead of a tractable demon,he calls up Rincewind, probably the most incompetent wizard in the universe, and the extremely intractable and hostile form of travel accessory known as the luggage.
