Ep 81: I trust everyone …

... It's the devil inside I don't trust. We did a robbery. If any law enforcement are reading this, it was not a real robbery. It was a fake robbery. Technically we didn't even do the robbery, it's part of the story. Somebody talked though, and now the Fuzz is on to us and we have to get out of town in Escape Plan by Vital Lacerda and published by Eagle-Gryphon Games!
