Please note that the below will be updated over time as things on the site develop and you guys spout out ideas
Black and White is set in a near Iron Age world where there are no nations or borders, but still a decent abundance of adventurers. Anyone with any exceptional skill in any given area is highly revered. Settlements are built behind roving bands of heroes because where is a safer place than the haunt they just cleared out of goblins?
Sea travel along the coast in small passenger boats (like half a dozen passengers and a few crewmen), along with fishing boats of course, are well utilized in towns near a coast. However, large galleys and exploring of the waters is not a thing occurring as of yet. Mostly due to the fear of monsters... but the templar are aiming to change that.
Explosives are available but they are currently still a little unwieldy and only used by highly trained and experienced foreman to clear out new sections for the mines. However, a particularly intelligent individual with the right tools and setup may stumble upon a way to better refine gunpowder for other devices.
As mentioned in the initial setting clockwork is a recent breakthrough by eccentrics but is a little large and clunky yet. With how many brilliant minds tinkering away with the entrancing series of gears it is only a matter of time before interesting efficiencies crop up to allow more portable devices.
Don't forget there are also the quints!
