Alllllllllllllllllllllllright, everyone. I get it, I do. Super tech is cool and fun. But you can't have it. You know why? Because 90% of the time, you haven't been around enough to prove you can be trusted with it. Super tech is basically anything that outshines tech from the kingdoms, and in some cases even Atlas. Do you know why Vox gets a pass? Because he's been here over three years and writes hard science fiction for a living. I've been here just as long and am the head of worldbuilding but guess what? Alapelagias won't have supertech. You don't need supertech to have an interesting location, you need good writing to have an interesting location. Worldbuilding isn't about measuring who has has the most powerful toys in some sort of dick measuring contest, it's about creating pathways for storytelling.

NO. SPACE.

YES. I know that just because Dust doesn't work outside of the atmosphere doesn't mean OTHER fuel sources don't.

NO. That doesn't mean you can have any space stuff. No satellites. No orbital cannons. No nothing. If you want an in universe explanation uh.... If we go into space, the moon destroys Remnant.

... There are a VERY few exceptions to that.

But you've got some 'SPLAININ' to do if you use those.

Pilum's barriers are less high technology and more an extension of their evil shit. That falls under their auratech.

Tech becomes super tech when it exceeds Atlas. Obviously, some placed put more focus on tech than, say, Vale, but once it exceeds public Atlas tech, it's a problem.

So reproducing some form of barrier/'force field' that's got a set limit of damage absorption (which happens to be reasonable) is a no-go?
