On the Pyramids
Post No. 17198463
The Pyramids at Giza were not built by aliens.
They were not built with the aid of magical beings.
They were built by human slaves and craftsmen, with the purpose of providing a physical waypoint on the ethereal plane. This particular location was so high in magical qualities that unsuspecting people were known to be pulled through if they weren't careful. Hence, when the large buildings, the interior corridors lined with runic inscriptions for safety, and the many rooms with different purposes. Think of it as a magical community center for everyone between Uppsala and Zimbabwe.
They haven't been used for that purpose since around the time of the first crusade. Over the centuries, Earth's position in the physical plane has shifted, turning places like the Pyramids or Stonehenge into the magical equivalent of paperweights, much like those plastic pyramids New Age people surround themselves with.
[spoiler]Honestly, how do they think it works? The Pyramids are pyramids because it's a structurally sound design. Lay's Chips are round, does that make them symbols of eternal recurrence?[/spoiler]
The only magic you'll find there now is ancient echoes. The focal point has shifted west into Libya, and is currently located near one of Gadafi's old concentration camps. Just goes to show, tyranny doesn't pay, especially when an escaped prisoner makes a deal with a djinn for your downfall...
Incidentally, if you ever do visit the Pyramids, steer clear of food vendors. Set spends his time selling contaminated falafels to tourists.
