"Hi. I’m Arnie. I fell through a portal behind a Burger King into the magical land of Foon. I’m still trying to get my bearings, but I have my podcasting gear and get a weak WiFi signal from the Burger King so I figured I might as well set up shop at the nearby inn and interview some people. When in Foon…"


In the pilot episode, Arnie explains how he came to find himself in Foon. He also meets Usidore, a wizard, and Chunt, a changeling currently in the form of a badger.

Arnie learns a bit about the town of Hogsface. Usidore tells Arnie a little about his quest to defeat The Dark Lord. Usidore taps into Arnie's wi-fi and sees the history of Chicago and decides it's an evil place.
