Few dungeon masters can make the game come to life better than John Francis. Dwarves, Mages and Barbarians jump right off of their character sheets whenever he sits down at the gaming table of frisky suburbanite parents, Linda and Brandon. John Francis' best friends, sailor-mouthed John Alex and thoughtful jock Jason, bring roguish swagger and knightly nobility to the game. And the object of John Francis' affection, the feisty Tara, provides all the Half Elven Double Princess backstory they could ever need. But when Jason enlists to go to Iraq and with the relationship with Tara going nowhere, it may be time for John Francis to hang up his twenty sided dice and take a job on the other side of the country. However, John Francis is about to discover that leaving will prove tougher than the Tomb of Horrors. OF DICE AND MEN is a blisteringly funny and deeply affecting look at the things that truly matter in life.

Following otherworldly plans which he finds very annoying, Humphrey, the ghost of a murderer, is
forced to team up with Lara, a lonely teenage girl ignored by parents and society. Unable to
touch things and assume a human form that would lead to the ultimate demise of his soul,
Humphrey must lead the girl to save two kidnapped children as a way to redeem himself and
finally abandon Earth.
The two make an unpredictable rough pair and explore the old mansion where some criminals
are holding the children for their shady business. The ghost and the girl find the children and try
to draw the attention of the city, but nobody listens to them: they’re just invisible creatures trying
to point out the existence of two invisible children.
Unable to believe in himself and convinced that he is damned forever, Humphrey abandons the
mission and vanishes, forcing Lara to act on her own to save the kids.
But when the criminals kidnap Lara, Humphrey realizes that he must do his best to awaken the
entire city and open the eyes of the people who continue to ignore the existence of the prisoners.
Then, as he recalls what his alchemist father told him when he was a child, that even the most
impure stone can be transformed into gold, Humphrey faces the most difficult choice of his
afterlife: remaining damned forever or risking a final death by taking on human form to free the
prisoners – a choice that can transform his soul from lead to gold.
