After a series of divisive escapades, the staff of the Rivercliffe Museum of Mostly Natural Histories has (finally) gathered together to (mostly) unite towards a common goal: pass the city’s annual thaumatic inspection! Everyone’s grown so much since last year… Surely they’ll pass with flying colors! Wait. Are those literal flying colors in the main hall? Why are the exhibits moving? Oh no.
