Peter Setters edited the summary of An Adventure of Unparalleled Importance Thursday, January 17, 2013.
On the surface, the plot is regarding an unnamed protaganist's adventures through wild and fantastical lands filled with bizarre and otherworldly creatures. A secondary character/sidekick later comes into play, in the form of a cavalier 'red devil' gunslinger named Johnny Duel.
The intent of the protaganist is, artifically, to discover where the 'magik' went to in the world, believing the world now a drab shadow of what it once was. The real idea of the story is to explore what it is to grow up against one's will, as well as what it means to have the need to tell fictions and create fantasies for oneself. The tale gets progressively darker as the protaganist struggles against the looming spectre of reality, the loss of innocence and the dreams of childhood.
