The wonders of the modern world

Jerry Stratton, November 8, 2009

In Helter Skelter, the player characters come to the modern world and experience the amazing wonders of 1969 San Francisco. Its a hard thing to grasp, the differences between our magical fantasies and our technological reality.

In this ten minute video, Bill Whittle (with a little bit of political activism at the end) compares the greatness of Egypt with the mundanity of our most mundane of structures—from the perspective of the Pharoah and his princes. If you’re an adventure guide planning on running any adventure in the modern world, you’ll get some great ideas watching it.
