  1. Thanks for the ideas. My neighbor failed on the first approach (did not help), but I could watch the intro of the add-on with being smacked & left for dead in that theater… Reminded me of “Stygian – Reign of the Old Ones´´, when cultists murdered the city gov officials to take over the town… xD
