"I feel naked without a weapon," I mutter.
My host at the alien conference looks at me with all its eyes.

It's currently available on @fdroidorg and Google Play. (Note it's still in beta and many features are missing.)

I'm going to block as many ads as I can. No, you can't stop me. No, if you try, I'll just leave and use some other website. No, it's not theft. No, I don't give a shit. Get off my lawn.
