Med. Fantasy Equivalent of a Smart Phone

GMMichael

Guide of Modos
Merlin, King Arthur, Lady Guinevere, and Sir Galahad are all sitting at the Square Table (the round one is still dirty from breaking fasts). Sir Galahad gets bored of the adult conversation, and looks for something more interesting to do while he waits with his elders.

What gets his dopamine going?

I'll start with: uncovering a Palantir, just to get the obvious one out of the way 🤓

Not sure, but this peasant catapult game was ok to play for a while.

He could just have jesters yell mean things at each other like a social media site.

In Shroompunk, any child nearing adulthood can enchant a basic smartphone in a couple of hours. It's a prerequisite to being allowed to wander past the fenceline, either to play/explore or to hunt and forage. There are no real search algorithms, and artificial intelligence requires some real enchanting talent-- akin to an artificer or an actual robot-- but they've got robust voice and text chat, group chat functions, and the ability to search terrestrial libraries by media tags. These services are free to end-users, with the library supported by taxes, wealthy patrons... and upcharges on premium services.

Extraterrestrial communications require couriers to physically go through the Warp Zone to the world where the recipient is currently residing, where it is transmitted by relay from the courier's phone to the recipient's. This is very expensive, slow, and prone to the couriers dying horribly-- though, at least, a copy of your message will be given to the next courier scheduled to complete the deceased one's route.

I mean... Galahad? The most pure of the Knights of the Round Table? He's got more focus in his pinky than most of us in our entire lives. He would not be caught dead getting bored or losing focus in the presence of his liege and king!

But, he is pure. Very pure. So maybe he has a book of psalms to study tucked in his belt. Or a block of wood and a carving knife to work on one of his collection of little Grail sculptures...

It would be IMMENSELY rude to ignore Merlin, King Arthur, and Lady Guinevere. However, Galahad might allow himself to be distracted by the Court Musicians who are playing in the background...

“They say this Galahad is a whoreso...”
“Silence thy piehole!”
“I speak of Galahad!”
“Forsooth!”

As long as there aren't three shells. We all know what THREE shells are used for...
;)
Now you've got me wondering what the two shells were for. I guess Sir Galahad could clop them together, like coconut halves, for a stationary horse simulator.

Didn't Harry Potter have a mirror that provided endless/addictive entertainment?
