You play as a friend of John Baker. He didn't show up for a pizza-and-beer night, so you go to his place, let yourself in, and wait overnight for him but he's still missing. Searching his place, you learn there's a new hole in his basement and that he's been dreaming of a fire witch trapped by an ice wizard. Could John really have gone down into that hole to rescue his fire witch?
