Not only has the flood of preorders meant that the success of the book is even more inevitable than it already has been, but it also kicked off the branch of Dark Horse Comics known as Dark Horse Books, who are also publishing books based off ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'', ''Franchise/MassEffect'', and ''WebVideo/TheGuild''. As Yahtzee has said in response to a question on {{Twitter}}, ''Mogworld'' is the first book published by Dark Horse Books.

** [[spoiler: Averted by Dub and the other devs. While Dub refers to himself as a god while explaining things to Jim, Slippery John and Thaddeus, it's only because it's the easiest way to explain things without confusing them.]]

Barry's attempt to rile up the local townsfolk into burning the remains of the horde is hindered by their genuine fondness for both the horde and Dreadgrave, as they had incorporated the regular pillaging into their community entertainment, while the various wandering adventurers and mercenaries caused more chaos than they were worth.
