This is one of those incongruities for the continuity that I just allow. The crystal balls are apparently computers, as I've alluded to in the past of DSWC. And now we know that they have PowerPoint installed on them (well, some of them -- Microsoft probably doesn't let it get installed by default).

I also love that Death doesn't like to make PowerPoint presentations. It's amusing.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
