Tailored Colonies

By:

Everyone has a vision. If you have enough effort and resources, you can make it a reality.

A tailored colony is a colony set up to meet certain criteria by its founders. Tailored colonies have been founded to:

*replicate a given historical period (or an idealized version of it).  (The Nipponese Cultural Preserves NCP-1 and NPC-2 simulating Samurai culture for examples)

*an ideal world for a given religious or social group (The farming worlds of the Mennonites and Stellar Amish)

*an asthetic ideal (the ice world of Glacia for example, with its ice sculpted cities and items).

*designed with a given ideal (the aquatic world of Spylos IV, where aquatically modified Aldollians live, or the Ayrie where genemodded winged Native Americans live).

The volunteer colonists are pychoengineered and often genegineered to match the vision of the founders. Sometimes the colonists are freeborn synths (Synthetics with the ability to reproduce, illegal in most places).

Initial constructions and some limited geoforming is performed to make sure everything is idea for the colony.

Tailored colonies help explain the One Dimensional nature of some worlds or the "near Earthstock" aliens (Dog people, Cat People, Fish People) that live there.

       By: Michael Jotne Slayer

The old clock tower stands tall, but the bulk of the uppermost storey is crumbling and unsafe, with gaping cracks in the walls. The metal struts and girders supporting the great bronze bells are still intact, though, and the bells survive. The grotesque gargoyles and arabesques which decorated the original design have either fallen into the street (once or twice a year more bricks fall from the tower, prompting calls for its demolition) or have been defaced, but the main doors to the clock tower are still intact and show signs of being kept in working order. This is the home of The Captains, clad in raggedy clothes, with sooty faces, and perpetually runny noses. But behind each set of eyes is the look of a survivor. They live to stick together and make it through each day. Older than their years in many ways, the friendship they share with each other and Wims ghost keeps the core of a childs innocence and hope alive in each. But they are still very suspicious of outsiders. They are a group of street children who live in the clock tower. Some are orphans, some runaways, and some nomads who occasionally return to their homes. But they’re all poor, dirty and perpetually hungry, as well as being wily, unscrupulous and mischievous in a fairly brutal way. Enough of them have suffered at the hands of adults for all of them to be wary of any grown-ups, particularly ones who ask too many questions, although with hard work and a lot of food it might be possible to win the confidence or even the trust of a few of them.
