Psst… We have a super-secret Patreon page. It is super-secret because Adam accidentally flagged it as adult content. So until Patreon reviews our account and determines that our nudes are in fact *tasteful* (j/k), you can only find this page through the links we post. Go ahead join. Tell your friends you supported RPX before they sold out and went mainstream.

The crew has finally made it to Fort Seeley, but the base is currently occupied by DHQS operators, and under surveillance by Canadian nationals.

Will they be able to secure the site without any setbacks, or will Thumb slip up again?
