Our Heroes are January Frost, Mary Mystery, MaryBeth the Hit Girl, and 
Love Princess Gorgoneion.  All others have been left behind by the pace 
of this good old time RACCies cascade.  Our Heroes have been thrust 
toward another universe, to seek an old threat.

But they get stuck, somewhere in a sea of fog.

"Oh, Trump?  Yeah.  Is it that unusual?"

"I guess not..."

Then a howling came from behind.  Love Princess Gorgoneion was standing 
straight, but backed by a howling void.  Howling!  It needed saying more
