(Excerpt taken from an AARO pamphlet)

The Allied Addiction Recovery Organization (AARO) has opened mobile drug rehabilitation units in several districts throughout Pallad City in a coordinated effort to combat the staggering increase of illegal substances. Two of the most recent and dangerous drugs are Euphoria and Afterlife—both capable of severely altering a person’s judgement and can cause irrational behavior, while leading to increased health risks, addiction, and death.

Of the two, Afterlife is the most deadly, accounting for nearly 700 deaths in Pallad City since it first appeared two months ago.
