April 1, 2020
BREAKING NEWS! Sources from within the criminal enterprise run by Kaeto, also known as "The Shark," have revealed an insidious plot to poison the residents of GoldFire City. Some may already be feeling the effects of the poison that has begun slowly seeping into the water supply and spreading throughout the city.

Detective Watts has been warning of such a plot for years, but city leadership has brushed it off as mere conspiracy. Detective Watts may finally have his vindication, but at what cost?

Fortunately, the source of the poison was discovered before it could be fully dispersed. The effects should wear off after a day or so and no long-term side effects are expected. In the meantime, temporary relief can be had by taking the antidote, which will help to minimize the hallucinations for the some time.
