Season 5 | Episode 8
1h 19m | Jan 21, 2024

After discovering the Monkey King and stealing back some bras, the AOD guild dives straight into deep water, with a magic crystal that answers all your questions! Well almost all your questions... at least it tells you who the hot guy down the street is! Will he be able to help our group enter the city? Or is he just a small-time farmer with his sister? Find out with us, Foundlings, as we are in hot pursuit of a hot individual.
