How the Internet makes life boring

February 24th, 2015 (08:30 am)
current song: Akame ga Kill opening theme

The following commentary was featured in the most recent Darths & Droids comic:

The rise of review sites like TripAdvisor and Eatability and so on make it more difficult for people to be truly surprised by something when they travel. Imagine you've set up this spooky encounter in an out-of-the-way motel somewhere in the backwoods of the Pacific North-Western United States. Your PCs are driving along the road as evening approaches and they spy a dilapidated sign: Nates Motel.

"Just a sec, I'll check TripAdvisor. Hmmm. 'Avoid like the plague. Stayed one night and husband got mysteriously murdered.' 'Something weird about this place. Reported awful decaying smell to town sheriff, but strangely he never showed up.' Okay, let's keep driving."

Bang! There goes your carefully planned adventure.

Something I'd like to add to this. Back when I read Firefly fanfic, there was this alternate interpretation piece that caught my eye. In this one, Simon was a tin foil hat wearing nutcase who had kidnapped River, with the Academy simply a part of his delusions. In that light, certain scenes from the show are quite unsettling. Though I imagine I latched onto that one in part due to the fact that Simon is my least favorite character on the show.
