I read a lot of fantasies growing up. Most were about young people with great power and potential, but no direction. They would meet a wizard who sent them on a path to become a hero.
Angst is the guy who got passed up for all of that.
He’s in his 40’s, he’s going through a midlife crisis and more than anything he wants to be a hero… once his back stops hurting. It’s a be careful what you wish for story as Angst drags reluctant friends on A Midlife Crisis in Medieval Times.
