    Yeah there was wanted posters; but no advertising posters, and also it's kinda hard to miss a billboard, even if you are a shoe starer.

    @Mooderino My interest has been piqued enough that I'm going to read your serial with the free time I don't have... lol. /wrists

    I just noticed that mataaitai gave you a good review too. I generally trust mataaitai's opinion on stories.

    We should do a review swap.

    Visit my site, http://www.blaise-corvin.com. I have punch and pie.
    I also have two stories: Delvers LLC and The Crimson Artifice. :)

    Story is definitely fun to read, and remarkably coherant for being made up on the fly.

    @Blaise - I have considered reading Delvers a number of times but I can never seem to find the time. I've had to cut back on my own schedule (from 7 to 5 days a week) so I don't think I can do a review swap at the moment, although I do hope to get round to reading it at some point.

    @Fiona - Thank you. Remarkably coherent an achievement I'm quite proud of considering the odd tangents it goes in.

    So after thinking about it for a while, I cn kinda see how a fantasy world would remain relatively uncontaminated. See, there are just three possibilities actually for a summoned(my term). A) Die. They can't change anything then. B) Remain at a low level of wealth. No lucre = no opportunities, and a typical artisan isn't gonna take them on, so no change. C) High Social status, doesn't particulary need change, so no change. Thus there is no change

    Although this is all wth the assumtion that people tend to laziness, which is not an unreasonable assumption.

    Well, I wasn't expecting this thread to come back to life. I think there are probably a bunch more reasons I could come up with for why the world hasn't advanced due to the Visitors but as I originally mentioned I just wan't interested in explaining it. It's a comedy, not a rationalist fiction. But it did seem strange to me people felt certain things were inevitable. I'm God in this world, I can change the laws of physics if I want. Nothing is inevitable. Inexplicable things happen all the time in this story. And then I explain them. Or not.

    I don't know if you're actually reading the story, but nobody else ever brought this topic up. They're too busy demanding I kill off characters they don't like.
