Of the things that she sees, which would baffle her the most?
There is nothing really interesting in the living room except a handful of comfy fauteuils, a fireplace, two tables and a sound system. I guess she is baffled by the street lights without flame and the horseless chariots outside. Maybe by the plumbing.
On second trough, she'll probably ask herself where does the music comes from.
They may actually be more surprised, because suddenly everything that ran on magic is now running on something totally different. Where as the other ones have no frame of reference so they might just assume it's magic anyway.
A mirror or of light and a mirror of darkness.
A large, normal mirror and an LCD television that's current off and providing a reflection from the ambient light, as though it were reflecting black.
Would she really be suprised by a glowy rectangle that is obviously magic? Or the device I'm currently pressing many glowy buttons on? Probably not.
She'd probably be slightly surprised at the obviously magic and obviously evil red light that illuminates various glass (and glass looking) boxes with dirt and plants in them that seem otherwise empty and then proceed to lop my head off since she clearly got transported into some evil sorceres lair.
After that she'd notice the window that is very large and of exceptional quality. And the masterwork mirror that also must have cost a fortune.
Yeah, those two would probably be the most suprising things for her.
Since she's from a fantasy world, she's probably very used to magical lights and wouldn't be baffled by the bright lamp hanging from the roof. She'd be familiar with reams of books and manga (and DVDs & BDs that look like small books on the shelves). The only thing to really baffle her might be my computer as it is obviously a highly complex magical item of the kind she's never seen before. Or the tv, if it were on, but it isn't so it just looks like a featureless black slate.
In my case it's likely either a case of her asking how i'm talking without my lips moving/who I'm talking to/what the fuck i'm talking about (Youtube videos) or why there are a bunch of boxes labeled "Magic" strewn about the room
Probably my lamp. Besides that the mess of seemingly useless trinkets around my room. I like to collect stuff and most of these things would appear without meaning. Next would be the obvious technological stuff like my computer once she realizes what it does.
The extreme cleanliness and complete lack of smells.
No fireplace smoke. No body odor. No sewage smell. No mildew. No domestic animals. No bugs or rodents. No dust on the floors.
It would seem highly unnatural for any medieval person, let alone a woman used to living in rough circumstances.
>or why there are a bunch of boxes labeled "Magic" strewn about the room
This is just a hilarious mental image
I'm imagining this bug-eyed adventuress panicking because there's a sweaty NPC in the corner and she can't get out of the room without touching a box marked MAGIC
It just means our normal clothing is fetishy to them.
>Your clothes, anon. They're so loose, so non-form fitting, so...mysterious. And that wolf and moon sigil...Tell me more about your mysterious world, mysterious anon.
No different than shitting In a river
In my case though shed likely be concerned about my 50s Godzilla movie poster. Hopefully I'd be able to convince her it's a play of sorts or she realizes that it's in a frame so it's likely some kind of painting
Actually that "night stick" can bring such profound pain with a light touch that it can freeze someone in place, and shatter/tear flesh from bones. Hell, the thing can kill you by simply placing it over your heart and twisting, if not just touching it to your ear.
>Strange garb with incredible patterning (camo) and other strange garb about
>Room is warm despite the clearly visible snow outside and a sealed off fireplace through the humongous windows
>Huge mirror on the segmented door
>Rectangular scrying plate with strange runes and dancing images upon it
>Incredibly soft blanket the NPC is wearing
>NPC is ridiculously tall for a human
>Magic lighting isn't actually powered by magic
>Strange walking stick (rifle)
>Strangely bound books
>The walls and ceiling are covered in tiny ridges and bumps as if stone, but are uniformly white and nowhere near tough enough to be it
>Wooden shield that is for some reason padded thoroughly enough it cannot cause meaningful harm with some kind of blue sponge and covered by canvas, and the strange soft sparring swords similarly festooned and wrapped
Now I think the real question is, how does she get home and if she has to spend the night in order to do so how do you accommodate her? Or don't you?
What if she's stuck here?
>Why do you paint small statues too tiny for the eye to behold all the features of?
>Why do the little sugary treats come in shiny paper wrappings?
>WHY DO YOU ATTEMPT TO COVER YOUR EARS WITH THAT STRANGE DEVICE?! (headphones)
I think most adventurers would be more annoyed that my room is covered in books and junk. All these piles of things to step around, and no loot.
Earmuffs were only invented in 1873 though. They probably wouldn't be around in the average medieval fantasy game.
Even then, I'm not indoors. Why would I try to protect my ears from the cold?
My taste in music, or the fact music is playing without a bard nearby. Or if should would even consider it music considering what shit they listened to back then.
>Why are you so tall?
>If you can afford such wondrous magical items, why can't you afford new sheets?
>That's a strange helmet, where is the face guard, and what does the black top on the front of it do?
