By Sam Bosma
Illustrated by Sam Bosma

Wiz and Mug are back and this time they're headed to a mysterious beach town to meet its amphibious inhabitants!

Wiz and Mug's adventure continues as a teleportation spell accidentally drops them off in a ruined beach town. A mysterious tournament and the town's amphibious inhabitants confront Wiz and Mug with the revelation that the United Order of Mages may not be exactly what it seems. In order to fulfill their mission, however, they're going to have to abide by the ancient law of the land and better their opponent in a game of volleyball!
