to night veil. First, a quick notice. The Mahal, a family is requesting the return of one particular VHF tape. Now you I remember that them a hollow family used to run the video rental annex in the roofs back in the nineties. We all enjoyed browsing their shelves looking at cardboard boxes that promised more than most could deliver wondering we were children at the mystery that lay behind the little curtain corner and feeling if we were adults, a little embarrassed as we passed the threshold of that curtain. That indeed, after the blockbuster hordes rude through town the terror,
we'll thunder of their hooves ringing out for miles around burning. Every independent video store to the ground that should have knit for the you view the and laser disk rental annex, but a the Mahal of family, there is one loose thread to this story. That is of deep concern to us all few just copy of heat that we lent. the day before blockbuster invaded and left us with ashes and grief, explained LUX me, Mahala and it's real the important that we get it back like super imported, she concluded. sing from a shadowy corner, in my studio sure how she got in here, unfortunately, the records of who rented out the tape were lost with the annex was burned.

If there is more on this, but first did he have like fail and the sheriffs secret police are scrambling in the wake of the recent verdict. In the case of the family of Frank, Chen Verses, night veil, the verdict, as I'm sure you remember, required that the city provide the family of the murder victim, Frank Chin. with one living, Frank turn in exactly the condition he was before. You know before the murder failing this after one year, control of the city will be turned over exclusively to the family of Frank Chin. The city council has charged Sheriff SAM with the task of returning a living function to his family, the sheriff been delving deep into the Resurrectionist arts and they are exploring every avenue possible. First, they hired folks that went by the job title resurrection. Men which
Seems like it would be related, but it turns out. their actual work was unhelpful and frankly, pretty grass the sheriff? ask them to leave second day considered the simple matter of time travel obviously use the most straightforward all they wouldn't. You to do is go back in time collect Frank Chin from the moment right before he was going to get murdered and just bring em did the future. Unfortunately, after our last brush with the future that huh frozen brain scam, time. Machines in night veil were declared forbidden and destroyed, except one that was placed in the museum of forbidden technology. Their share. demanded to use that one, but apparently even they are not allowed to enter the museum because its forbidden, to that.
