<randomrant> "Hello, this is Rampages-R-Us. I'm Bob, how can I help you?" "I'm not happy, Bob." "Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that. What's the problem?" "I scheduled a rampage for today." "Congratulations! We've only just restarted. What's your package number?" "7245-2352-11." "Thanks. I'm just looking that up." "Uh-huh." "Ah, you purchased our Deluxe Stompy Package." "Sure did. And then you canceled it." "But you were able to reschedule, right?" "Yes, I was. I got priority." "I see that you're at your city right now." "Yes, I am. And that's the problem." "Are the buildings not tall enough?" "No, they're fine." "Are there enough of them?" "Yes, that's not the problem." "Are there cars on the streets, trains on the tracks?"

Careful tracking of groundwater is relatively recent, and not universal. And even when that is done there are rarely laws in place to regulate use. When a well goes dry, they just dig deeper.

Panic scented the air, sending a tingle through her. It was thrilling having so many tiny lives at the mercy of her whims. As she neared the last suburbs bordering the city she noticed a black cloud sweeping in from the ocean. That drew a frown. A bit of rain was okay, but this thing looked like the kind of storm that inspired ark building. She paused, standing on a village with her hands on her hips, watching as lightning kissed the gap between the swirling clouds and the white capped sea. It seemed to be holding, maybe she could get in a quick romp through those tempting
