A String of Unlikelihoods

Resigned to his failure as an
artist and a human being, Pibsterbule takes
employment as a filing clerk at the Department of Forward Thinking. Little does
he know that his superiors are all members of The Fellowship of Chartered
Prophets, with influence in high places.
Pibsterbule gets frustrated with his lowly status and
the way he's treated, so eventually he takes a drastic measure which
miraculously transforms the filing system. As a result of this he gets
promoted to a vague ceremonial post, and starts to have premonitions. It soon
becomes evident to him that the end of the World is nigh, and in his capacity
as Custodian of the Clues, he deems it to be his duty to prevent it. He
travels to distant lands in his attempt to do this, and only succeeds by
virtue of ... a string of unlikelihoods.
