(The group steps out of the astral portal onto uneven, rocky ground. They struggle to keep their balance as the air around them shifts in chaotic patterns and the sky swirls with purple lightning, tendrils of flame, and moon-sized crystallized formations that mutate their shape and color into impossible configurations.
Disoriented, a few of the gods and monsters shuffle to the edge of the floating plateau and peer down. They see an infinite drop beneath them.)
KING RALPH: Monkey swank the volleyball gazebo!
DAVID BOWIE: Sandwich joust poinsettia?
J.K. ROWLING: Butterbeer quaffle bludger snitch.
OLD BONES (blows on his kazoo, which makes the sound of a full 100-piece orchestra playing in perfect harmony): Shazzbot!
RALGATH: Morons, don’t try to speak. The chaotic energy here will just force you to talk gibberish … more than normal, I mean. Your consciousness will adjust over time. Well, linear temporality does not actually exist here but you know what I mean. You can understand me because I am projecting my thoughts telepathically.
Don’t wander off. I have temporarily stabilized the gravity in a generally spherical area, so you won’t float off into the infinite void. For now. Probably.
Welcome to Limbo.
GREG: ANTELOPE HERRINGBONE.
RALGATH: Ah, yes. Zaphael. A lawful creature such as him would not be able to pass through an astral portal to a plane of pure chaos. I intentionally excluded him. I wanted to keep him off our backs for a time.
RALGATH: Yes, he will be angry, but I’ll deal with him later. That’s my issue, not yours. I just want you idiots to focus on continuing to kill each other without his fucking “yap yap yap” lecture at you about morality or other such nonsense. Most problems can be solved with murder. Speaking of which …

DOSSIER: CORPORAL HICKS
Alias: Lawrence Welk
True Identity: Chupacabra
Power: Goat Eater
A loathsome creature that preys on the weak and slow-witted. Still, a chupacabra is smarter than it looks, for when it feeds on a goat at night, it can also extract information.
Alias: Janet Weiss
True Identity: Lich
Power: God Hater
A lich despises the gods, for this undead abomination envies their immortality. This one sought to murder deities, at first. But then it became enraged when its kill was thwarted. From then on, it turned its ire to include mortal creatures as well.
