The lot of you were standing in a huge crowd of adventurers, some like you, some not. A massive, three-headed DBZ-style dragon stood over the group, plucking people out. Each head gathered it's own small group of elite adventurers, and after they each have their group, the massive reptile banishes the vast majority of the group with a wave of it's claw. For whatever reason, you six fail to disappear. You sit, ignored, in the vastness of the great dragon's cave for some time as each head lectures it's own little group of adventurers on what it wants from them. Finally, all of it's choicest bands set off, the wyrm turns and notices the six of you for the first time. "Aw...fuck." one of the heads says. "These ones can't go home." "Why not?" asks another. "Probably they fucked up so bad that they blew apart everything near where they were standing, and the gate is jammed up with crap," answers the first. ... "Well, hell," says the third. "Let's send them to the Bottom Tier. Maybe they can do some good before they get eaten, enslaved, or otherwise made even more useless." And thus it begins. The dragon conjures a pamphlet in front of Olaf, and scoops the lot of you into a massive claw, tossing you rather haphazardly into a swirling gate. You fall through, into a huge clearing in an even huger forest -- huge like the deer are approaching 40 feet tall, and the trees stretch miles into the sky. The pamphlet reads: You are the Chosen Adventurers of the Great Wyrm Danickdave, Keeper of Worlds. Your mission: to explore the Worlds that are Not Working Like They Should, figure out what the hell is wrong with them, and fix them. Succeed, and Great Power and Untold Riches await. Fail, and the tortures of Dredmor's piddly-ass little dungeon will seem like a day on the beach compared to what the Great Danickdave will do to you. Good Fortune. The only thing observable to anyone other than massive trees and wildlife: Argus can see inside one of the trees, which appears to be fake and hollow, with a ladder. It goes both up and down, but there's no clear way in.
