The ground is now clear

The rest of the planet is still the beautiful metropolis it always was – indeed, aggressive combustive deconstruction has allowed for some valuable insights into imperial architecture, and I managed to get a perfect view of a cross-section of an Imperial defence tower just yesterday (before the other half of it collapsed). The assault of the Archenemy has yet to breach the inner city and has, in fact, done a lot to clear out some of the unsightly shanty-towns in the outer rings, giving those who lived there an exciting new opportunity to relocate. If anything, the ground is now clear for future redevelopment once we recapture the planet.
