* ThoseTwoBadGuys: [[AxeCrazy Mr. Wonderful]] and [[TheComicallySerious Bowg]]. Subverted in that [[TeethClenchedTeamWork they don't actually like each other at all]] - at one point, Mr. Wonderful snaps and yells at Bowg to cut it out with the DelusionsOfEloquence because it's driving him crazy. [[spoiler: He later turns on Bowg and kills him.]]

'''''Mogworld''''' is the first published novel from CausticCritic [[Creator/BenCroshaw Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw]], famous for his online VideoGame critique series ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation'', introduces us to the world within a popular {{fantasy}}-themed online {{MMORPG}} Mogworld (which is basically ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' in all but name). There, the {{NPC}}s go about their daily lives, unaware that some of the people among them - thought to suffer from a strange syndrome - are [[PlayerCharacter player characters]] controlled by beings from another universe: [[HumansAreCthulhu us]].

It's the story of Jim, a minor character in the game, who dies when an army attacks his magic school only to be resurrected sixty years later by a "rogue necromancer" named Lord Dreadgrave, and now, all he wants is to find a way to die again, preferably for good this time, which is not an easy thing to do, since death seems only to be a temporary state in Mogworld. In his quest, he's accompanied by a pair of other undead (an [[TheDitz airheaded]] girl named Meryl and a self-righteous priest named Thaddeus) and the inept thief Slippery John - whether he likes it or not.

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 ''TheGuild''. As Yahtzee has said in response to a question on {{Twitter}}, ''Mogworld'' is the first book published by Dark Horse Books.

* CreatorThumbprint: The Audiobook downright feels like a slower and really long ZeroPunctuation episode.

** Averted with the zombies themselves. It's pointed out early in the book that they could never have sex with anyone- even prostitutes would have to be totally blind and have some degree of mental illness to try it.
