Gernsback-1
Super-science is at its best in this Earth were Pulp fiction meets with fantastic technological achievements, heroes and mastermind villains.

Short Description of PoD:

Description: Gernsback is the last of the worlds. It is built from a timeline where science and technology have taken a left turn, making a future that looks like 1930s SF stories. The divergence is more particular and inventive (and for some of us quite amusing) : Nikola Tesla marrys the daughter of J.P. Morgan, linking the last of the popular mad scientists with the last robber baron’s money. Instead of vanishing into bankrupt obscurity, Tesla took technology into a new path and with it changed global politics. The depression never occured, Hitler never rose to power and Germany, instead of Japan, is the major economic competitor with the USA. In 1965 the world sits in a state of technological utopia, prosperity, and glorious order (or so it seems). The technology is a wonderful hodge podge, leaping ahead in some areas, while stagnating in others, so that some things we take for granted are non existant. The history is logical (or at least as logical as Tesla ever gets) and the result is dynamic, with a real sense of wonder. But again, this world suffers from a lack of space (in particular, except for a few specific inventions, the effects on technology are barely explored) and could easily have been the basis for an entire worldbook.

Al llegar a la realidad Gernsback 1 los visitantes notarßn que los habitantes visten como en los 1940’s de Earth Prime an en el a±o 2000. A primera vista los edificos parecerßn iguales hasta que miren hacia arriba y vean los carros voladores, los super edificios, dirigibles y plataformas. La ciencia es lo mßs importante en este mundo de avances extra±os y en todas partes hay demostraciones de los mismos. Como tiendas que venden mßquinas que hacen el trabajo mßs fßcil al ama de casa, anuncios de nuevos inventos, anuncios de las nuevas tarifas de Centennial Communications para llamar a la ciudad en la Luna, avisos de los nuevos trabajos disponibles en la ciudad submarina Atlantis II. Los ciudadanos de este mundo confφan en sus lφderes y veneran a sus heroes. In Gernsback 1, the good citizens of this scientific world eat their fast food at the Hamburger Doctor, they see in the Telebroadcast the series Labmates (the team of friends working in a hospital) and drink a cold bottle of AtomSoda. Todos los habitantes de esta scienciacracia tendrßn por lo menos un rank en Knowledge/Science and Technology y uno en Knowedge/Current Events. Criaturas del Menance Manual incluyen Pulp Fiction Robots (p.75).
