    The tech in Avatar world seems to have jumped a lot in 70 years.

    Hey I made a game, check it out @ http://ifallingrobot.com/. (Or don't, your call)

    It's weird the only reason why I watch avatar was not because of ang but all the other characters like Uncle Iroh.

    The firebending nation already had access to steam era technology so I don't see it as surprising.

    Iroh was the best character behind Toph.

    He really contributed a lot, Avatar wouldn't be Avatar without him

    Considering how fast our tech has jumped in the last 70, doesn't strike me as out of line.

    I imagine that technology progresses really quickly when you have magic powers and haven't been in a world war for the past few centuries

    It looks like they went from a pre-industrial society on the verge of an industrial revolution to a post-industrial society. 70 year just seems a little too short for all that change. Maybe the lack of guns is throwing me off.

    This. This right here. This is why the technological jump in the show makes me very, very happy.

    1890 to 1960 is 70 years.

    Plus they have magic to power things if need be.

    Also, y'know, this isn't Earth. History doesn't have to apply.

    Anyway, thanks for all the info, got the OP updated.

    1850 to 1920 was only 70 years. They had freaking metal steam ships in the first series so it isn't that different from going from metal steam ships being the height of technology like during the Civil War to the jazz age.

    Really nice to see Sozin's goal is still achieved too. Also happy to see Zuko and Aang accomplish in 70 years with peace what the tree generations before couldn't in over a hundred with warfare.

    Also it helps that the Fire Nation actually had something along the lines of Industrial Revolution-era, at the very least, industry.

    Actually the war clearly jumpstarted the tech boom( as is generally the case in real life). The Fire Nation was developing fuel powered vehicles when most people were still using horserats and buggies.

    I have a podcast now. It's about video games and anime!Find it here.

    I like that they've jumped to the early Batman period. I hope there's an Avatar signal.

    Anyway, I really hope that the water tribe industrialized quickly using watermill production and is now leading the adoption of electricity with hydroelectric generation. Meanwhile, the fire nation would hold dominance in powered transportation.

    In Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had five hundred years of democracy and peace – and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.

    On the other hand, which intimidated Hitler into not invading and which had the tank divisions that lost to infantry that wasn't even equipped with shoes?

    I hope not because I really don't think romance is Avatar's strongest quality.

    Also here's a documentary about the first show.

    Hell, bump that up 10 years. From 1900 to 1970, we transitioned from trains to the moon landing.

    The scale of this is going to be interesting. For Aang it was your typical "save the world" scenario. With Korra, it looks like we'll be heavily focused on the city? I think the reason I'm excited is because what's at stake is key social issues. Namely the Bender vs. Non-Bender issue. It's going to be stuff that can't be solved with a lot of fights scenes, and I trust the writers to not make the Equalists very obvious villains. I want to see justified reasoning behind the bigotry. In a world where people get superpowers at random, I expect to see a lot of benders being the "haves," and the nonbenders making up most of the lower classes. Give us very gray areas where downtrodden class of people are being manipulated by the weird mask-wearing dudes.

    So much potential here.

  • QuidQuid I don't... what... hnnng Registered User regular
    I don't expect the benders will necessarily be the ones with the concentrated wealth, more so that they're feared because they command a high amount of power that can't really be controlled.

    Also I decided to try and find photos of China in the 1850s then the 1920s

    Perfect with the caveat that China actually went through hell for that amount of change. Talking about complete destruction of the imperial government, internal strife and the foreign occupation of its major cities and territories. Hopefully in the fictional world, history would be kinder

    But she wasn't born in the Earth kingdom, so that makes more sense.
