The Lower Manhattan Power Outage
Driving through normally lit streets that were totally unlit was also surreal. It was not the commute I was used to.
Getting to work and having the building itself totally blacked out, with even the emergency lighting failing, and it struck me just how totally unnerving it was to explore and unlit floor with hallways and rooms and wandering people with just a simple flashlight.
Imagine if all you had were a sputtering torch or a sloshing lantern in your hand?
I have a huge newfound respect for dungeons as an adventure location. There is simply an untapped potential to use the darkness as part of the dungeon dressing. I need to think on this when I have more free time, but I like the potential i see.
