    I have a lot of interest in the progress action as provided in the Book of Regency. In my opinion, its one of those actions with the most possibility. I'd like to create a sort of Birthright technology tree; a list of possible progress actions and their effects for example. Anybody would be interested in such a thing, and would someone like to do some brainstorming with me on the topic?

    The "technology and advancement tree" from the many Civ games comes to mind.

    I have often considered these types of things for the progress action, however the progress actions strictly forbids such groundbreaking and earthshaking breakthroughs that the Civ game gives. Perhaps consider the upgrades that the Europa Universalis game presents. They are small and are not all a transition into a new age.

    If it did bring in a new age, you sure would have a whole new game on your hands. However, someone was talking about creating a Birhtright 50 to 100 years into the future. There would have to be some technological breakthroughs!

    i think,
    the technology will be progress slowly, very slowly.
    an hundred of years mustn't change the face of the world !!!
    ( it's a world of magic, with realms spell and blood line )

    if the technology progress, i suppose that source of magic will be
    decrease proportionnaly, no !

    That was part of the plan for the 'future' birthright. And personally, I hate all that technology decreases magic crap that has been shoved down my throat. I'm a firm believer in the prospect that magic and technology can coexist.

    Slow progress is a neccesity, however, and the changes won't be too drastic.

    I saw this in the Book of Regency, and I like it. However, if the technology levels increase the province levels will increase as a natural reaction to the improved conditions of life. As a result of that you are going to see the magic levels drop. This might cause just a little bit of concern for the true wizards of the world. Following that trend I see a war brewing between the "normals" and the magically active.

    I also would see conflict between true wizard and those that would try to destroy the source.

    I don't know if technology would do that, but it would make an interesting game setting for a 100+ year in the future game.
