Perhaps they'll be less suspicious once GPS-linked message store and
retrieval systems become commonplace. I can foresee RPG's taking place
in a virtual sphere overlayed on the real world. You might be tasked to
seek the Bridge of Death, which, in Virginia at least, might be the
Wilson bridge. Perhaps we'll get used to seeing robed mages doing
incantations all over the place.
