The CD has been scratched, burnt, and generally rendered completely unreadable. I wish for a quicker and easier way to schizoblitz.

Re: I, FOR ONE, WELCOME OUR NEW WISH-CORRUPTING OVERPOPE

I wish for Time 2 After filling the eastern Mediterranean, the Zanclean flood continues in the western part, right when Time 2 starts. In the very first frame, Cuegan drowns. Thus ends Time 2. I wish for a prequel to Time. Randall releases a comic called No Time, which is entirely text based, but i...
