Quandary Resolution 2450
mixen, made in the shade, concrete, halcyon
The halcyon and golden days of the City came to an abrupt end when the volcano exploded without warning, triggering a series of earthquakes and crashing down hundreds of buildings along with the dreams made in the shade of an entire generation, a great catastrophe made worse by the corrupt practices of many builders who had used a structural concrete that was so weak and so soft that it might as well have originated from a mixen factory.
