    No as long as you have reference points.

    Someone should pretend to be Enigma's jump-drive. That way when he figures out where you are, he'll have found it. :approve:

    It's mine.

    Ok, I'm facing north. To my immediate right is a small shed with burnt doors covered in black tar, with thick black smoke billowing out of the gaps in the door. There's no need to call the fire brigade. Straight ahead of me is the sea, although it's quite a way beneath me. To my left is a harbour, again, far below, with the mouth of the river it's on exiting into the sea in a northerly direction. To my right, on the top of the hill I'm on, is an old ruin, I believe it's an Abbey. In the distance, I can hear the beeping of the siren warning that the swing bridge is about to open.

    I am aloft, with sand at my back, animals to my front, a castle to my left, a
    big dipper to my right.

    was misinterpreted :biggrin:
