I thought this was entirely a joke begun by Dork Tower (comic) and *perhaps* made into a parody later on, but I had no idea of the interesting story herein. (It's a pun on the widely played Warhammer 40K)
I am not a RPG (role-playing) gamer, but I am familar enough with many of the concepts to find this amusing to read.
It was a fun read (for me, anyway)
