In the lush and verdant land of Khemet, an ancient royal returns after a lifetime away. He brings with him a new god and the worst chaos the land has seen since the beginning of time. Young King Men-Kheper-Re is the only one on earth able to convince the gods to stop the wanton destruction of the land, but is unwilling.
Not even Hapiseneb, the young king’s most trusted advisor, is able to persuade him to allow this new god’s only request. A god himself, Men-Kheper-Re instead chooses to engage this newcomer in a battle of wits and wagers, choosing instead to replay the same contests fought millennia ago.
Everyone in the land of Khemet suffers from the gods’ battles. Far away from the palaces and politics, Yered, a foreigner, hears about this god of his ancestor–this god his fathers forsook that had promised them everything before abandoning them to slavery. The ancient royal promised a land flowing with milk and honey, but all Yered can see is mud and straw.

He has to avoid cops because if they run a check on him, they’ll find out he’s a runaway with a warrant out for his arrest.
