The Last Five Centuries Of Tech

Because we've presented THE FIFTH WORLD as a set scene, it can sometimes seem like nothing ever changes, but technology is always advancing. The following are some of the major innovations in the 460 years since the Second System War:

  • Hard light shields have replaced actual metal shields.
  • The Royal Navy has put the larger size of ramships into action.
  • Electromagnetic grapples have been added to ramships to make ramming easier.
  • More intelligent AI has been developed for suits and comms.
  • Energy field projectors have been miniaturized to about the size of a thumb drive.
  • Airborne cruise ships have been launched on Nubilus.

In addition to these, there have been countless incremental advances in consumer technology and trends since then.
