Tech Levels

From ThroneWorld

Introduction

The Basic Rules assume a campaign start in 1000AD and the Tech Levels are based on that start date, with technological progression from that time forward.

As an optional resource, new Tech Levels representing the later Stone Age, Pre-Columbian cultures, Bronze and Iron Age are offered below. It is unlikely that any campaign could be set prior to or in the Bronze Age without a significant change in mapping scale.
