Dear Investigators,

We are in the clutches of chaos. I would say that there is no food here, but there is... Sometimes... Dan's piada turned into a copy of Farmers' Almanac, sprouted wings and flew away. We are simultaneously in a state of crisis and complete normality. Regardless of us being certain of our mortal existence from moment to moment, MUR Episode 24 is here! In this episode: Dan, Ben and I talk about the new player cards in the newest mythos pack, In The Clutches Of Chaos. We promise it wont grow wings and fly away. Probably.
