Although the Gnomes gave up industrial technology when they arrived on-planet; and the Uruki are descendants of a low-tech regiment of genengineered soldiers, the Ardeni Kingdoms are currently TL4. Knowledge of higher technologies, and a high level of craftsmanship based on family and clan expertise has allowed the Gnomes to produce high quality goods in spite of a lack of industrial capacity. The Ardeni Kingdoms however, are in the early stages of industrialization, and could advance rapidly if given the right motivation. The question is, can I guide them away from discovering my masters until we are ready for them?
