The Steampunk Empire

The Crossroads of the Aether

Why didn't history Develop a different route?

With all the amazing inventions that had been accomplished, dreamed up, and were actually being used or developing.....what went so wrong that has left us in the world we now see. No more gentile ways of life. No adventure.

An artificial hand , with fingers moved by cogwheels and levers, was designed in 1551 by Frenchman Ambroise Paré. It worked so well that a handless cavalryman was able to grasp the reins of his horse.

So, here is a question for you all to ponder. Your thoughts and replies are most graciously accepted!! 

What do YOU think it was that changed our noble, ever-changing world into the parallel world we see around us today?
