Just more evidence that all modern technology is actually magic in disguise.

This is one of the few bystander incidents where I truly believe I would just crumple up the note and walk away not believing it at all. I would have assumed it was just some dumb Youtube or TV prank.

More than a few people did that. It's how he ended up stuck there for hours, poor guy.

Now, your lost arrows (or targets) can be trackable via Bluetooth with a mobile phone app, thanks to this Bluetooth-enabled arrow nock.

And remember, sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from technology. Be the first enchanter in your village to cash in with the Quiver of Seeking, using the Principle of Contagion to exploit the mystical link between the quiver and its arrows to allow those rich delvers recover their precious ammo.

(Evil enchanters can band together to suppress all knowledge of this enchantment, seeing as how it'd be much more profitable to keep re-selling expensive enchanted arrows to the delvers, rather than enabling them to recover them.)

Actually legitimately fascinating, and probably why certain words, or memories will throw up seemingly unrelated words or memories and automatic thoughts and phrasing.
When I say, "I forgot to put on..." my mind and mouth will almost always try to finish with, "antiperspirant" rather than, "sunblock" which is what I now far more often want to say. I've probably rammed those neurons into responding as a string.
