       Additional Information  

    Join master thief Nifft the Lean with his companion-at-arms, mighty barbarian Barnar Hammer-Hand, as they trust to their wits and their luck. Once Nifft and Barnar were hired by the ghost of a dead woman to kidnap the man who betrayed her and drag him down to hell to join her. A simple task -- or so they thought at first....

    Another time, the pair lucked into an even more lucrative proposition, when they were shipwrecked on the way to work in Costard's sap mine -- very dangerous and sometimes nauseating work far below ground -- and were hired by Bunt to bring back twenty gills of the ichor exuded only by the monstrous insectile queen. It seemed like easy money -- they wouldn't have to go to hell! Of course, the best laid plans sometimes do go astray, but this time they were sure they would...make a killing
