Welcome back to the next episode of Tech Tuesday ! The place to live out your own heroic fantasies with some of the coolest gadgets, weapons and gear available in the DC Universe.
Tom Hanks fans will fare well this week! You were on a cruise across the Atlantic Ocean to Europe. Definitely a real cruise journey you can take (don’t look it up, it’s rare).
You’re sitting on the Poop Deck with a Daiquiri when the moment strikes and you need to use the bathroom. You stand up and begin making your way to side door to enter the stairwell and head towards the bathrooms.
As you reach the door, it swings open unexpectedly as a pair of kids race outside. The door catches you and, before you know it, you’re over the edge and in the freezing cold waters. You call for help, but no one can hear you over the drone of the engines. Your voice fails at about the same time as the ship disappears out of sight.
It’s not all bad though… There’s a desert island! It’s not huge, but it has tree cover and even the run down remains of a small shack. Kelex takes pity on you and offers you one item to help you survive your ordeal so you can make it home and
track down those kids never take a boat ride again.
We need Kelex’s assistance! Use Kelex to roll for a random number out of 6. You can do this by commenting and saying “@Kelex roll 1d6”. Our friendly resident chatbot will then give you a number out of 6. This number indicates which Gadget you’ve received based on the list of gadgets below. If you’re unsure of how the gadget works, we’ve left a short description for each gadget to help you!
Now, all you need to do is take a look at the gadget and tell us how you would use it to save the day. You can be as creative as you like. I’ll be taking the best 5 answers in a poll and sharing them with you in the next installment of Tech Tuesday
