Sorry it’s been quiet lately. Holidays and all.
Anyway, I’ve been considering some ideas and have a question for the groupmind. Has anyone done a secondary world setting where they’ve included modern technology as the baseline (e.g. early-21st century Earth tech as the standard for a non-Earth world)? If so, how’d you handle it?
I’m thinking about how a lot of urban fantasy (primary world) describes tech (using brand names, firearm calibers, and other recognizably Earth things), but I’m not sure that’s easily translatable into a secondary world. Or is generic the way to go? Maybe I should look at some Warcraft fic (admittedly more steampunk-fantasy).
