JUDGE DREDD // LIVE EVIL
Mega-City One, 2140 AD. Home to over 72 million citizens, this urban hell is situated

Judges — empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. Toughest of
them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law! Now, a spacecraft has crash-landed in the
city, and Dredd has ordered Exorcist Judge Lamia to help investigate the crew’s fate…

SAVAGE // THE THOUSAND YEAR STARE
In 1999, Britain was invaded by the Volgans, and lorry driver BILL SAVAGE’s family
were killed. He led the resistance to victory in 2010, when the enemy surrendered. In
2015, Savage was stationed in Volgan-occupied Berlin under the guise of bar owner
Herr Wilder, but his hatred of Volgs caused him to go on killing sprees. Now, he’s learnt
the truth behind the Thousand Year Stare, a secret Volgan experiment…

We are the Metilal Minions. We interrupt your force fed digital pacifying you to bring you real data. We transmit against Tharg the Might and his Prog 2071. Filled with misinformation it is.
To confuse drudges like you, there is a assemblage of 5 different mini-progs to break your equilibrium. Visuals and Textuals are scrambled so while tones sound the same, there is enough dissonance to make each poke and prod and your grey head flesh.
Concepts like Judges who can verbalize with the fleshly departed are heresy and should not be official thoughts. Also, other rando transmissions like in ABC Company where war droids combat for the concept for peace is also against the authorized memories.
Being a collective of thought seeds means one is coming into midstream, so disorientation will occur. So insidious this mind sprouts can grow, it can addict one to follow the stream and soon be lost to the collective that is the oppression of Tharg the Mighty.
Threat Assessment of 4 out of 5 Warning Logs. Danger of core system corruption if one consumes this Prog.
