Premiseedit | hide all | hide | edit source

Fate brings together three seemingly normal people, Duck Newton, Aubrey Little, and Edmund "Ned" Chicane, to fight off the evil that's plaguing the town of Kepler, West Virginia, a cryptozoological tourist trap and very small skiing town, and Sylvain, a planet full of magical beings that is mysteriously linked to their own by a stone archway. During their adventures, they meet Bigfoot, discuss French onion soup, and discover the true meaning of friendship (as well as some aliens).
