Prompt: World


"Why is it foggy, Grandfather?"

"Ahh, my child, on mornings like this, the Graphics Drivers are under extra strain, so the Great Coder, in his wisdom arranged that there be fog, to minimize the number of polygons it must render."

"How do you know?"

"You might not believe it, but there was a time when ordinary men could create whole worlds with no more than lines of Code. This power was taken from mere mortals, but the Great Coder still uses the True Code to make the world."

Grandfather had a way with tall tales. No human ever wrote Code.
