So what genre would the setting of DE be? It clearly has fantastical elements with the Pale, however they are very down to earth. Also the technology is quite clearly different than that of our own 20th century, yet no more advanced, basically a "sidegrade" to what we have. So is there a genre for something like this? I know there is the "weird fiction" term, but it seems rather wide, so I was wondering if a more concrete term exists. I mainly ask because I am myself trying to brainstorm a setting that, while different in tone and story, would take a very similar approach to the world - a huge fantastical change from reality, and then an examination of sorts of how would this change things in a realistic way for the society, how would it develop, look relate to itself etc.
