Cohen the Barbarian.
He´s been a legend in his own lifetime.
He can remember the good old days of high adventure, when being a Hero meant one didn´t have to worry about aching backs and lawyers and civilization.
But these days, he can´t always remember just where he put his teeth...
So now, with his ancient (yet still trusty) sword and new walking stick in hand, Cohen gathers a group of his old -- very old -- friends to embark on one final quest. He´s going to climb the highest mountain of Discworld and meet the gods.
It´s time the Last Hero in the world returns what the first hero stole. Trouble is, that´ll mean the end of the world, if no one stops him in time.
