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.

the dead mechent of death

       By: celticring

To Dougles Nye money is power, a powerful wizard only newly into lich-hood

Originally the son of servants to a noble family, yet he found that life humiliating. "How could anyone stand to serve another?" he often wondered. His father, was a greedy man who offered an explanation one day “It’s all for the coin, every demanding, humiliating thing. It’s for the coin, boy."

So when Dougles began developing the potential for magic, he found a way out of a life of servitude. Learning magic though stolen books, he made his escape. Taking the all the possessions of the lord’s vaults with him. He set out to gain as much money as possible.

His gifts for magic allowed him many advantages other merchants could only dream of. Capitalized on the use of deviation magic, allowing him to always having what the city he is in needs most, whether that is wheat or weapons, poison or drug doesn’t matter to him.

Some would say he follows war, disease, famine, and political strife like a vulture looking for a nice carcass to claim. What they don’t know is he has a hand in the conflict he supposedly follows. Assassinating ruler to incite wars, casting spells that decimating crops, acting as an information broker to both sides in a conflict. Dougles is known as a man who can get what you need to some, to other a monster who capitalizes on the suffering of others.

The lich know as Dougles Nye, prefers the title ”The Merchant of Death” for that shows just how much power money has earned him.
