Now before you all dismiss me as a nut who is ignoring the lore and history of the Elder Scrolls series, lets take a minute and hypothesize about this... this unlikely but enjoyable thought experiment.
Now overlooking the fact that Tamriel is set in a magical, mythological universe which at the moment we know is equivalently on a par with our own world circa 5th - 15th centuries;
Could we assume that at some point in the future of Tamriel it may reach a point in time with technology similar to our own?
Now some of you may highly revere the series and hate me for even suggesting these ideas but lest we forget that J. R. R Tolkien set Middle Earth in an 'alternate history' of our own world.
