The Old Man

Loyal Policies, do not listen to the Hendersonians.  They lie, and lie, and lie–these Policies have been corrupted by Outsider notions of Freedom, Independence, and Self-determination.  Glean only the truths the Company desires from these True Records, Policies, and no others.

Blood for Blood

Those who would deface the tower, inside and out, must be punished.  The poisonous words of the Hendersonians are just as dangerous- if not more so – as the grapple-cannons of the StormHawks and the mandibles of their Ant allies.  Resist the urge to feel any sympathy for these traitors and Outsiders, Loyal Policy- and HartLife will reward you.

Stay tuned after the episode for a special word from Creative Director Clayton Faits about HartLife NFP and the current American political climate.

Hostile Negotiations

We apologize that you must hear more of the Outsiders, Loyal Policy.  The events contained within this True Retelling of the History of the HartLife corporation may be shocking- that any could even think to threaten the sanctity and safety of our Glorious Tower is horrific.  Hold your company-mandated loved ones close, my dear Policies, and don’t make a sound- the Outsiders will be defeated.  They must be.  They must.

The Labor of Lies

Dearest Policies, we know you hesitate to return to the warrens of the MolePeople. Truly, I find them as disturbing as you do. Believe me, though- if you are to preserve the glory of the HartLife Corporation, you must understand all of its True History.  Listen closely, Loyal Policies, and learn from the sins of Loamy the MolePerson and her disciples of No.

Down the Drain

Remember, Loyal Policy- in the service of the Company, all work is noble.  HartLife has invested in you, and so you must invest your thoughts, labor, and even your life back into the corporate good. Without the Company, you are nothing.  Serve the Directors.

What’s Left Behind

Welcome back, Loyal Policy, to Our Fair City.  Today, we take you to the terrifying Outside, to monitor the progress of that fiendish group of Outsiders, the crew of the downed Lightning Rig StormHawk.  With their new chitinous allies and the captive Doctors West and Moro, Elizabeth and Andrew in tow, they make their way towards the Tower—but for what purpose?  Find out as the story of Our Fair City…continues.

A Series of Inspired Follies

Each level of the Tower is different.  Amenities and environments are tailored to the needs of the Policies who dwell there.  Of course the Managerial class requires a greater degree of comfort than tunnel dwelling Policies.  How else would our society function?  The intricate, careful work of the Vice Presidents, Managers, and other leaders requires a clear head and gentle life.

You would not disturb this careful balance by demanding more than is your due, would you Loyal Policy?  Of course not.

 

We’ll be going on our mid-season break after this episode, but never fear- there will be non-episode releases every other week during the hiatus, including blooper reels, a Halloween Special written by Wolf 359‘s Gabriel Urbina, and more.  Regular episodes of Our Fair City will resume on November 23, 2016.

The StormHawk Revisited

Shun the Outsider, Loyal Policy.  Their un-businesslike conduct and unguided thoughts will only lead you astray.  Even if these Outsiders were once Loyal Policies of the HartLife Corporation- nothing can live outside of our Company’s warm embrace.   The Outside is dark, and full of wolves.

The Executor

Everything and Everyone in HartLife has a proper place.  When Policies are forced outside of their proper location, all order breaks down.

Aren’t we lucky to have an upstanding and loyal Policy like Executor Teju Valentine to ensure our safety and security?  He will surely do whatever is necessary to make sure we are cared for.

Whatever is necessary.

Orders are Orders

Loyal Policies- we all have our place in HartLife.  The Directors guide us, fulfilling their immortal will as our Founders and Protectors.  StreetSafe observes us at all times, making sure we are true in action to what resides in all of our hearts.  The Actuaries prognosticate, prophesying the continued success of the Company as its will resounds through the ages.

It is a M.O.L.E.’s job to serve, to follow orders, and to obey.  Nothing else.  Listen with horror as one M.O.L.E. violates this sacred dictum, with terrifying results.
