I hadn't forgotten about the technology when I spoke about the Rennaisance
feel to Magicians. I always liked that it and Charmed Life had for me,
specific historical resonances, but they also had some technological
advances. Always worked for me, just a side-effect of the whole
world-splitting deal. I think the fact that I never had cause to question
any of this says much for Diana's world-building.

And no-one will EVER convince me that Caprona is anything but Catholic!
