Strange thoughts

When I'm playing Master of Magic, I have this strange mental image. End of the game comes and I cast the Spell of Mastery, and all my opponents pop like soap bubbles and are gone.

But then the game ends, and I imagine all my loyal people in my cities watching as the universe disintegrates around them. People are running through the streets screaming in fear; mothers grasp their children and hold them; the cathedrals are full of people praying for salvation; and then in an instant they're all gone.

It always makes me feel like a mass murderer.

1 Now you understand why the New Testament is so different from the Old. Even God has epiphanies.

2 This kind of reminds me of the show "ReBoot," where the conceit was that the enemies in a computer game were living electronic beings who were killed when the User won the game.

3 It reminds me of the ST:TNG episode about Moriarty.

Also, I hate unsolicited suggestions and advice. (Even when you think you're being funny.)

At Chizumatic, we take pride in being incomplete, incorrect, inconsistent, and unfair. We do all of them deliberately.
