You've just passed your field test, and are now a fully certified PATROL officer! Your mother would be so proud of you right now! You're introduced to your new partner, a well-respected but sometimes crotchety senior officer named McGregor; you've heard he's really tough on newbies. As you sit in your new desk for the very first time, a flowery madman bursts through the window and starts monologing.
Piteous PATROLers, it pleases the Purple Pimpernel to perform a piece of puzzlery, a plaque presents. Prepare to play, "Place of the past. Paucity of ports and prairies. Plentiful peaches provided." Portentous prose, a portion of partial puzzle, possibilities populate. Perhaps a presentable path? A pregnant pause, people peering puzzled. Perhaps possibilities prevaricate, Pourquoi?
Apologies, Purple Pimpernel passed a portion, a pugnacious plague, pestilent and pugnacious! In Pennsylvania's patchy past people pray. Physicians pontificate, postulate and prevaricate. Pustules, pigmentation and pain persist! Powerless PATROL Padfoots pursue pathogens. Paint a portrait of prosaic policework. Preserve peace while past phases into present and populace perishes. Puissant Pimpernel! You proclaim, provide a path. Perhaps, perilous but pure to prevent the pugnacious problems posed to Paradise? Pick up potent patterns, the path progresses!
This parley is not purely perfunctory patter, punctuated with plosives. Proud productive PATROL-patsies may potentially perceive and emperil the plot. Prognostication not positive, proponents of painstaking preparation prove poor in pell-mell proceedings. Prove the Purple Pimpernel prescient, a prodigal and potent prestidigitator, or preserve the population!
Provenance, PATROL persons pondering, preparing points of pressure, promoting postulates and passing parochial pronouncements without proper prudence! Perspicacity provides perception, perceive and ponder "A pretty penny parlayed to prodigious position, primed and plumped for pouring, a pithy proclamation for past pugilists, Pericles pales proudly." A Person of passing prominence, pipe proud upon portrait; picture of pastoral pride. Peoria proximate, Presidential!
Powers pass. Provided the Purple Pimpernel prevails, Paradise plunges precipitously. Paradox preventative procedures under pressure. PATROLers probe penetratively at the problem's pores, posing panaceas as past's path points irrepressibly to present. Pondering people, places-- parents pasteurized by paradox, poor patrons of patrons of police parties posited perpendicular to presence. The Period of Probity passes as Past's pseudopods push up, peruse pesky punctuation, provide possib*<thunk>*
His speech is interrupted, you see your newly assigned partner (suddenly that word leaves a foul taste in your mouth) lower his tranq gun, and start walking briskly towards Medical. "Wait!" You shout, "Why'd you shoot him, he wasn't done with his speech, and we need to save history."
McGregor keeps walking "That was going to last another twenty minutes, and we need to go back to stop the infection, book this guy and meet me there, if you're worthy of your stripes."
Can you show McGregor that you deserve to be on the force?
