19:15, Kristos> I heard a story about a native group somewhere in the Americas that sent their dead away in what were basically black hot air balloons. True? I don't know.
19:41, Cryoburner whispers: Of course, we'd also have to look at the viability of using balloons in a battle like that.
19:45, Cryoburner whispers: In the scene, only a few get shot down, but in reality one might expect most of them to, seeing as all it takes is a flaming arrow.
19:51, Cryoburner whispers: Plus, balloons aren't particularly steerable, so they would have to start upwind and hope they end up roughly in the general vicinity of their destination. :P
