Time Period Guide
With Summers Past being based on the Harvest Moon games, the staff have also chosen to base the setting of the roleplay on the games. As the exact setting can be a little difficult to understand as it doesn't correspond to any particular era in real life, this guide has been put together to clarify the three main areas of the site's designated time period.
The technology in both Ioana Valley and Westhaven City is based off the 1950s era. Thus, technology is limited, with items such as computers, tablets, mobile phones, and other modern items not existing.
Medicine in the Summers Past universe is almost on par with the medicine of today. Most things present in today's hospitals can be found in the hospitals of the Summers Past universe. However, only major cities, such as Westhaven, tend to have access to this technology. Clinics such as the ones in Ioana tend to refer patients to the bigger hospitals for more serious ailments.
Attitudes to social issues are a little further ahead than even those of today. The general public are very open-minded, accepting to all, and things such as racism and homophobia horrify most and are considered highly unacceptable. There may be some individuals who still exhibit bigotry, however this is rare and the staff would like to discourage members from creating characters that could be offensive to other characters and their diversity.
If you'd like more information, have a question, or would like clarification, don't hesitate to contact a member of staff!
