Inaquin technology has reached the gunpowder age and clockwork age at roughly the same time. This has led to some interesting advances in warfare, travel, and the day to day.
The invention of skyships has produced inter-continental mass transit, easier trade, and of course, piracy.
Trains have made continental travel easier for the masses.
Clockwork prostetics have made it possible for those without limbs to live life as a normal citizen. They have also made it possible for the rich to abuse the privilage, replacing their “weaker” flesh parts for more durable, metal ones.
