Ralph is your classic, highly intelligent but socially awkward nerd just finishing his last day of work as a box boy at the local supermarket. His life hasn't been as happy as it could be, his parents are dead, he lives with his grandmother and he's frequently harassed on the streets of Glasgow by a group of locals who have nothing better to do. It's only when alone in his bedroom that he finds solitude and escape from this mundane existence, for it is there that he becomes "Game Master" of his own realm.Ralph's world is about to broaden for he has been granted a scholarship to the University of Scotland. Immediately upon arrival he expands his gaming skills with a new group of misfit fantasy addicts; Davy, Hank and the attractive elfish Marlyn. When Lennie, an old childhood acquaintance and adversary, is unexpectedly added to the groups on-going game the fun and fantasy take on more serious concerns.
