First topic message reminder :

Uh

Not really sure what to write here :0

Discuss any ideas or thoughts you have concerning the technology level of Adonia, things to be done for entertainment, any cultural stuff, etc.

Just for some worldbuilding, mostly. :0

But under Tod's idea gold would see a common use in magitek devices sooo

I know, I can read. I just thought it seemed like it would overcomplicate something nobody's going to end up thinking twice about when we're actually RPing. Money will just be money and that's that.

But I guess we're doing nickels?

Also honestly what Steak said. I doubt we're gonna go into too much 'random guy gets mugged for traces of gold' and shit unless they were REALLY loaded for some plot reason and blah blah blah it's probably actually not that important and probably very unlikely that money will crop up in non-domestic/financial-hooha talk.

I apologize for complicating the discussion. All the technical stuff and the backstory and the details really aren't that important, but some people might have been interested in it.

Really, though, my second post was the core thing:

Before anyone says that's too complicated, I have to say: that explanation I made is basically the backstory or in-universe justification.

In effect, all that means is gold (the coin) is not gold (the metal) in terms of worth or utility.

Eh, why not. So long as it remains background fluff it's cool.

Alright then. So the notion is now that gold (the coin) is not actual gold and actual gold (material) is for magic stuff. I think another topic to take on is other notable conductors and potential insulators of magic. I suggest iron as a weak conductor and copper as a moderate conductor. It can structure like this from weakest to strongest. If anyone wants to debate some stuff about it, feel free to post

Iron <... < Copper <... < Gold

Iron: very weak conductor.
Tin: weak conductor.
Aluminum: moderate conductor.
Copper: powerful conductor.
Gold: very powerful conductor.

Titanium: very weak insulator
Bronze*/Brass*: weak insulator.
Lead: moderate insulator.
Steel*: powerful insulator.
Silver: very powerful insulator.

* = alloy.

I feel like metal alloys should be at least moderate insulators, since, y'know, heavily armored mages are theoretically pushing limits.

Well, when I listed mine, I was more talking about for use in magitek. What counts as moderately insulating when used in magitek may stop a lot of magical output when used as armor.

This was mentioned a long while back about steam tech. I was actually wanting to have a country of people who are mostly Mimi's race, that excel with steam tech, since they can't use magic of any kind.

I suppose I'll ask just for posterity's sake... What's the word on televisions/radios?

Personally I feel like radios at the very least should be a thing, but I figured I'd ask .-.

I'm personally okay with both, but maybe just older televisions.

Radios are fine though

Like, radio dramas, soaps, superhero shows, all that kind of thing.

Assuming Adonia is a heliocentirc world, is the general belief in a geocentric world or a heliocentric world?

I'd say heliocentric, because there are plenty of scientists and observatories and stuff.

there now be a figure named Nero
Nero was once a man
a man so plain
but he was a gods-fearing man
who would not profane
he was so righteous and holy
and so, cow-moly!
the angels swept him up
and with them they let him sup
now he is an angel of heaven
and joined with a sacred seven
and so they commune with us men
to help us with methods beyond our ken
