I've recently begun journeying the Forbidden Lands and it's been a fascinating ride!
Early in this thread, Brior suggested that a good historical analogy for the technology level would be somewhere around year 1100-1200 for the human civilization.
Would you say this goes for Alderland as well as Ravenland? Or was progress slower in Ravenland during the Blood Mist, putting Alderland closer to a later medieval level of technology? Is Ravenland a war-ravaged, more archaic corner of the world, or is the setting more or less early medieval anyway?
