I'm trying to come up with a society that completely relies on magic for almost all technological purposes. The world itself started out with very little difference from earth, any mystical animals are the result of (in)sane mages playing god with natural creatures. Sources to pull from: Eberron, Arcanum from the Hell's Gate books, Full Metal Alchemist
Pulling off of GURPS tech levels this is what I've got so far:
General TL - 5
* Transport (TL5) locomotives, steamboats, airships.
All of these powered by magic instead of steam.
* Weapons/Armor (TL2/6/9) Iron weapons; iron armor (including mail); siege engines.
Smokeless powder; automatic weapons; tanks; combat aircraft. Electrolasers; heavy laser weapons; battlesuits; combat robots; designer viruses.
This is the most schitzo'd tech level present, without the need to develop gunpowder (why would you when magic does all that stuff so much easier) you have TL2 at the personal weapon level; swords, knives, crossbows, ect. MOST of the heavy combat capabilities are are at the WWI level, whether through straight magic or genetic manipulation. Also available are magical space marine armor, gene warfare, golems.
* Power (TL NA) Magic.
None of the stuff requires the direct presence of a mage to power it, instead a battery of sorts is charged to plug into the device in question and power it.
* Biotech (3/8)
Crude prosthetics; anatomical science. Genetically modified organisms; gene therapy; cloning.
Healing magic eliminates the need for most modern medicine; including prosthetics. Prosthetics do exist, however they're more like what would be found in cyberpunk than in the modern world, a maginetic arm is a lot stronger than a human one, and can be used for so much more than just arming stuff.
Specifics - TransportationTrain -
levitated over the rail bed and propelled with simple movement spells, the trains of this world are capable of sustained speeds well over 100mph.Airship -
much wider used than the zeppelin was in our world, the ship itself is held aloft by He filled ballons and propelled with the same magic used in the train.Boat -
pretty much the same story hereDragon -
genetically modified over the years to be big and angry, the transport varieties are also capable of carrying roughly 12 people on their back at a time. While they are slower than airships, they are also capable of taking off/landing from unimproved airstrips and are a lot more resilient to ground fire.Horse -
Now the regular horse is a good animal for individual transport, but it has a lot of room for improvement. The people of this world did so, capable of trotting at the speed an unaugmented horse can gallop and sustaining that pace with minimal rest for days at a time it is easy to see why the mages of this world were unhappy with the original.Roc -
primarily a military form of transport, with that word being used liberally, it can only carry a single passenger. Designed for an air-to-air role it is essentially an upscaled peregrine falcon for taking out dragons.
Now requesting more ideas. I don't care how fleshed out they are, or even if it's just a cool picture you found that you think would fit.
