It took a combined effort of sustained work, intentional work, on a reactor complex where "quality" meant they only cut the structural materials with bad additives on 50% of it (when the work was actually done) to create the Tchernobyl explosion, and it took an earthquake sufficient to move a subcontinent 8 FEET to create the problem in japan-on a reactor that was more than forty years old and fifty years behind the design curve, and slated to be SHUT DOWN.
Beyond the need for a fairly large crew of well-educated (Possibly collegiate engineering level) disposeable terrorists to turn your reactor into an Atomic bomb (Specifically), there's the time factor-you're not going to do it, even on an old Hanford-N site, in a sweaty and joyous-praise-be-the-cause afternoon using hand tools and a flippy binder.
Well.. yes and no. Not a thermonuclear device, but a dirty bomb? yeah, those are doable.... but.... you don't ned a reactor core to make one, or even reactor grade material. Raw
works fine too. So it's STILL pointless.
Powered Pitchblende is BAD for the lungs. Imagine if the dust got scattered over a city?
Actually, good luck getting people to inhale it. It's too heavy to remain airborne more than a few minutes.
I can haz joystick!
MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
Show Archon and Borticus how much you would like to see new Doff races!
