Caffeinated Resurrection, Part 2: After Action Report

Aristotle brings it

(Stupid = the unexamined life; crazy = believing stuff you can’t coherently live.) At the end the audience voted to keep Aristotle alive and to return the others to the grave. Mission accomplished.

I’ll be playing Aristotle. Come on by!
