This parody of the sword and sorcery genre is not only funny but also a commentary on commercialism and greed.

The idea of a fantasy world where real wizards and dragons are forced to act the part and put on shows for the benefit of an off-world tour is inspired, but the story was a bit too ambitious in scope. It was hard to keep track of all the balls in the air-- especially with so many griffin characters and subplots within subplots.

"I've had two little yellow cat-birds and one bigger brown one, and a stick-man and a stick-woman, and a little woman with yellow hair, and now you. Haven't any of you ever seen a dragon before?"
