Then, we get this crazy idea. "What if we go to the construction site where the University Center used to be and see if there is a wrecking ball there?" THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!
There were several problems with this idea. It's a construction site, not a demolition site, why would there be a wrecking ball? What if the sniper sees us before we can wrecking ball the tower? What if we don't succeed on the first shot and...

"Roll your skill check" said the DM
"I rolled a..."
"YOU SMASH THE BUILDING WITH THE WRECKING BALL AND IT COMES CRASHING DOWN IN A PILE OF RUBBLE!"
ha ha ha AWESOME
