    Where have all the heroes gone?
    We keep shining the signal into the night sky, but the call goes unanswered.
    Bleak times have descended upon us . . .
    Will you don a cape and some spandex? How about a suit of dragonscale armor and a battleaxe?
    It’s your choice: become one of the heroes MisCon 32 so desperately needs, or join the villains and plague us all with your riddles, labyrinths, and mutant experiments.
