Timelock

As the saying goes.. First there were the creators.. Then there were the destroyers…

Before their demise, the Immortal Kings set in place fail safes upon our world.. To make sure we did not destroy ourselves into oblivion. One such fail safe is the Timelock. It is an instance where the people of Altera do not create technology that would inevitably destroy themselves or others in mass chaos.. Even ones in the guise of doing good. In cases when a researcher or mechanic has an epiphany to create things that wouldn’t exist in our current realm, the things they may create are inclined to fail, possibly with dire consequences… Or they would not be structured or planned as they intended, resulting in a faulty mechanic. This.. is the Timelock.

------

The Timelock is set to around 14th Century Medieval Times where electricity is not available and using gunpowder can be a faulty mechanic {See Cannon Announcement}. Any character attempting to advance technology, using materials, metals, alloys, etc, that bypasses the timelock must always request it through a convo with Lore via research {See Research Submission}.

Tidbit - Renaissance or Colonial Era ships are certain things which are more in-line with what is allowed, due to the fact that ship design in our world is purely aesthetic in Minecraft (Cannons not included). The technology level of medieval Europe is roughly what we’re going for, but it is not a one-to-one correlation. Anything that may cause an Industrial Revolution, or hints at it, is removed unless spoke with by Lore.
