islander: Double POD, a group of people who died out migrate and A hefty black Plague sends Europe into a reactionary death spiral. The red lines represent a unique Incan invention, cloud-lines. A cloud liner can carry up to twenty people between cities at relative speed. They use a very basic steam engine that burns coal. This was figured out in 1511 and a network was quickly constructed around the empire, funded by the emperor himself. The empire was hit by Plagues in the late 1400's caused by drifting Spanish Refugee ships, but held together by the skin of its teeth. The plagues left most cities with vast empty quarters, that were rebuilt with wide streets and basic sewer systems. After the discovery of steam power in the late 1450's the emperor commissioned the construction of the town of Yupay, which housed 10,000 academics in the worlds largest centre of learning and study.
