Tailored Colonies


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.

It is said by the village gray beards Of Breen, that the band of human exiles who founded their prosperous farming settelment almost a century ago,had to fight a long,savage struggle with the original inhabitants of the fertile valley;monstrous trolls that saw the new arrivals as meals, rather than as potential neighbours.After 5 long years, the humans with their superior steel weapons, drove the troll tribe into the bleak highlands and hills sourounding the valley.But as time passed, the old tale begun to become legend, rather than history and is regarded by most, as a mere story used by parents to frighten disobediant children.And yet the village leaders have always forbidden their people from wandering the hills....
