    That said, the understanding of how an atom is structured dates back to the mid-1800s: (See: Richard Laming) So it does barely fall within the Victorian timeframe the steampunk genre usually derives its sensibilities from. I'd probably put any advanced knowledge of the subject as past the era, though.
    And thus, I learned something new today. Pretty interesting how long it took before we managed to actually build from the concept.

    'While you took care of your areas, I had my men and Hilda's take care of the citizens closest to Volkov's HQ, evacing them away. It gave us some wiggle room, so we won't have to worry about collateral damage and innocent lives lost as we fight, so don't hold back. It's only us and Volkov's people here now.'
    I already know the answer (or I at least think I do), but what are the chances of someone being able to nuke the skyscraper?

    EDIT: Actually, screw that. I'm going to write the attempt anyway.

    EDIT 2: Oh, wait. I can't do that because I'm stuck.

    Looks like Ramilia is going to have to slap some sense into Sloane when this is over.

    Robert is now a ghost.

    Fear him!

    But really, are we allowed to mook (Yes, I can make it a verb if I want to) Volkov's forces?

    I figure that the real fight is with Volkov, Carmen and Sergei. So the Volkov's Forces are just kind of... filler, until then?

    Someone should give me a quick rundown of what's happened since we attacked the armory- I dont think I've missed much, but I do plan on HotP derailing the RPG at some point at it might as well be soon.
    ~Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste. I've been around for a long, long, year, stole many a man's soul and faith.

    So if you meet me, have some courtesy, have some sympathy, and some taste. Use all your well-learned politesse, or I'll lay your soul to waste.

    You haven't missed anything at all, I think.

    Only thing of note is Cas, and Max are currently killing the hell out of Volkov's forces.
