Now that I think about it, I wonder how my nearest area would look like in that book. I live near the former border of German and Russian Empires, so I wonder whether one town would use Clanker technology and the other - the Darwinists' creatures, or maybe they'd somehow connect and intertwene the two styles?
Lovely drawing! Also, my cousin and I had a fun time trying to figure out what was up with the flags cause we were like; England/Prussia? But he was Serbian-American! But I think we got it right in the end though... Anyways, it's all so gorgeous with the map in the background and then these fabulous kinda fairytale beasts and steampunkish animals Can't take my eyes off it!
Tesla's Death Ray? I remember that- he suggested using an electrical projector or "gun" to accelerate charged mercury or tungsten particles to high velocities and directing them in a stream at enemy targets. The death ray would swat squadrons of bombers from the sky and cause whole armies to fall dead in their tracks, according the Tesla. I've just begun reading the books, and it struck me that Tesla ought to be around somewhere because he was trying to market his Wardenclyffe station in the real world, and given that technology is more advanced in the Leviathan-verse, he is probably experimenting with something even crazier (and he was crazy enough in the real timeline!!).
