The Level of Technology in Whistler Crest

Technology in Whistler Crest


Based around the level of technological advancement, Whistler Crest is set somewhere between the mid to late 1800s, and very early 1900's. This is largely due to the fact that magic has stunted the growth of technology. Despite the lack of many of our modern amenities, there is still quite a bit of technology being utilized in town.

Whistler Crest has its own small printing press found in the basement of the Whistler Crest Community Museum. It is used to print newspapers, books and important documents. Much of what is written is done so on typewriters. The Council also makes use of a telegraph, which is found in their headquarters, used to communicate with the settlements in the Cobey Desert and Morray Mountains. There is electricity found in Whistler Crest, as well as light bulbs inside buildings, but oil powered lanterns can still be found as well as matchbooks/matches.

Some other basics include rotary washing machines, dishwashers, sewing machines and icebox/refrigerators. Some other new and interesting inventions can be found sprinkled throughout the town, like a brand new soda fountain in the ice cream parlor!
When it comes to photography, Whistler Crest citizens still employ the use of daguerreotypes, ambrotypes and tintypes (depending on what materials are available!), so handheld cameras aren't readily available. But you can definitely get some photographs of you and your friends if you visit the museum!

When it comes to travel, bicycles, and flight by wing  are the most common means of transport for singles, but Varkery-drawn wagons are also available. There are also tracks for a steam locomotive outside of town...but they appear unfinished and don't seem to go anywhere.
