Default Re: Agenothree (HNO3, nitric acid)

Yes it was mentioned, P'ter, that there were open pools of crude. The one thing that always stumped me was that in DD it was said that all you needed was electricity to make HNO3. BUT it seems that electricity was lost somewhere along the way until Fandarel "reinvented" the acid battery. Love the stories anyhow, by the way.
That also reminds me that the agenothree and flame throwers where two different items. The Mastersmith liked the idea of a flame-thrower and the Oldtimers liked the Agenothree field sprayers as it wouldn't singe the Queen riders or ground crew.
