Happy Apple Bloom Line Art by iamthemanwithglasses

To be honest, she looks more like a gator than a pony. The mouth/muzzle is as the previous said is much too long proportionately. It lo...

"The atom is not a soldier, it is a worker."
-Close approximation to Soviet NPP propaganda as written from memory

Thirty years ago today, Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant (CNPP) reactor number 4 blew its top, as from a malfunction in its reactor. The resulting explosion culminating in the worst nuclear disaster the world has seen. Even more so than today's Fukushima. Something near fifty people - reactor workers, fire-fighters - died as a direct result of the event but over the years the death-toll brought about from the radiation that leaked climbed into the thousands. Exact numbers can be politically charged.

In the aftermath, the nuclear utopia town of Pripyat - built to match the highest bar of Soviet living standards in the seventies and eighties in celebration of their nuclear energy sector - Chernobyl, and the area surrounding were evacuated of 60,000 residents in just hours and nuclear fires burned towards the CNPP

Today a thirty kilometer zone of exclusion separates the area from the rest of the world. Thirty years on the Zone of Alienation is a petri-dish for ecological study and "Dark Tourism", people visiting The Zone to bask in the grim glow of Chernobyl's world in Ukraine.


Figured after work I'd put this out, since while browsing the news on work-provided phones I was informed. Mostly writing this from memory and what I already know before I hit the bed.

Hey, do you happen to know Slyth33's steam account? He alluded to having an account of sorts when you guys visited the Sporum.

He does.

I don't know if he wants these details handed out, but I'll ask him you were asking around when he's on and I'll tell ya when he's back around.

In the meantime if you want to dig through all of 44 names there is a Sporum group on Steam: steamcommunity.com/groups/spor…

Thanks!

Tell him, in addition to my name, that I created the Words of the Wasteland series and that I enjoyed his Burning Sea series. That is, if he doesn't recognize my name initially.

He should, when we wandered back and he noticed Drew he talked about how he really enjoyed his missions.

He is honestly surprised that place is still moving as it is.
