Our Fair City
Episode 6.10- The Battle of Waste Field Three

As we come to the conclusion of the first half of the Sixth season of the True Historical Retellings of Our Fair City, we invite all Loyal Policies to join us.  Join us in shunning the Outsider.  Join us in shaming the Dissident.  Join us in exposing the disloyal Hendersonians working amongst us, striving through craft and word and violence against the great work of HartLife.  Even as they work to rend our Mighty Tower apart, listen: and remember.  Their words are hollow, their victories are meaningless, their actions fruitless when compared to the great history of Our Fair City.

Episode 6.9- The Closing of the Gullet

Loyal Policies, enjoy this True Retelling of the Battle of Waste Field Three, and see for yourselves through the propaganda and lies spread by malicious elements within the company.  Truly, none of these Policies, disloyal as they were, could have survived without the mercy and beneficence of the company.  Do not believe their lies.  Do not believe your ears.  Believe only in the power of HartLife…all the life you’ll ever need.
