       Additional Information  
      The inhabitants of the tiny village of Verminus are suffering from acute intelligence deficiency, just like the rest of their planet. Like children playing with matches, they are a danger to themselves. Can we really stand aside and let them blow themselves to oblivion? Help us help them when it is too late! Give generously to the Alas League.
    Episode 1: Purgatory

    Too late indeed! Cowardly fleeing a mere extinction-level man-made catastrophe, many of the small village's inhabitants are taking refuge in the mountain's caves. Will the few left behind--because they wanted to finish their drink--be the first happy victims or are they condemned to survive? And in that last eventuality, will it be that terrible or is the movie The Day After exaggerating? And what about this mysterious and courteous "Alas League"?

    Episode 2: The Dragons of Verminus

    Our villagers, having barely begun to familiarize themselves with their new environment, meet with Sully Citor, a mediocre merchant with a certain flair for golden opportunities. Meanwhile, late-payment notices cross paths with subscription cancellation threats. Only one thing can explain the situation, but they don't discover it until the end!
