The gods an Irish programmer’s been praying to are real, and they have a task – find weapons from ancient Celtic myth or watch the human race be eradicated by a legion of dead tyrants.
I’m confused. Who is the protagonist, the ‘gods’ or the programmer? ( And if the ‘gods’ which one in particular? And why do they need a mere mortal, the programmer? Why can’t they do the job themselves?)
IOW: who is in the driver’s seat of the story? Who specifically wants to get their hands on the weapons — the programmer or the gods?
I think the implication is for the programmer to be the main character, if this is the case, then his goal is to save the human race.
I think best to restructure the logline to reflect this and eliminate the basic logic flaw DPG raised:
After a legion of the un dead head to Earth a programmer seeks the help of a long forgotten god to save the human race.
