Vacationing in the Lost City of Atlantis?
Ran across this today. Over the years, I’ve been known to send this travel advisory to enthusiastic Midnight Guardian readers.
~ATLANTEAN TRAVEL ADVISORY~
The Mogdoc Royal Empire has been informed of your imminent crossing of the barrier. According to our records, you have been classified as HUMAN. Therefore, we would like to welcome you to the beautiful, lost continent of Atlantis.
We hope you find our residents charming. If any should extend an invitation to dinner, please do not hesitate to comply.
Just a few rules to help make your trip more enjoyable…
Bring a flashlight
The evil that banished our land across the barrier plunged us into a world without sun or moon, a land of forever night. From our experience, humans often find it difficult to see in the dark without assistance. This beacon will also make it easier for us to find you if you should escape become lost.
Discard your Token upon arrival
While it is true that humans must hold an Atlantis token to cross the barrier, once you arrive you should discard it or hand it over to the nearest mogdoc authority. Common sense may tell you that you need to hold onto it to get back, but common sense is so overrated.
Avoid the village known as Elsted
Please know that this destination is not a safe haven for humans as you may have been told. It is old, secluded, and infested with rodents.
Never question these rules.
You can trust us, we’re mogdocs.
We hungrily await your arrival.
