Further details

Brian is accidentally transported to Munty by a magical amulet. Before he can use it to get home, Howell sells it to the local criminal mastermind, Slasher Morgan.

In an attempt to secure both the money and the amulet, Brian persuades Howell to pursue an ingenious plan. It's risky - especially as crossing Slasher Morgan usually involves eye-watering pain - but Brian has nothing to lose. Except the amulet, obviously.
