    That is not a wooden bridge. That is a simulated artificial wooden bridge made from the latest high-tech simulawood tech fibers.

    They're still perfecting the technology. Sheesh.

    Clearly, we have the power of gods on our side, and you have... what.. electricity?

    Actually they have, the second they brought the time machine on-line is when ascendeds from the future started coming through.

    If they did, they'd pop forward and bring back a carpenter.

    Magitech is not Earth technology (not even in the sense of being sci-fi like theoretical advanced Earth technology). It's a technique for utilizing sourcestone to duplicate the sorts of things gods can do. You wouldn't waste sourcestone on a simple bridge, and the ability to do wonderful things with magitech doesn't necessarily imply advanced industrial skills or any knowledge of electrical engineering.

    That was the failsafe they brought online. The Defiants cannot yet generate the power neeeded for time travel.

    The implication is that you can't go back to a point where the failsafe does not exist.

    They found the time machine.

    That said, they can build complex robots and inter-dimensional telescopes, but can't work out a rope bridge.

    Idk.. a lot of kids can do highly complex calculations on a calculator and a computer, but can't do long division on paper.

    Seems feasible to me.
