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 Candle-Eyed Man

       By: Murometz

The third son of a candle-maker, and secretly a spy, Tsiao Fong Wei betrayed his family, clan, and town to the merciless Qongg Dynasty, causing the deaths of his own family members. He survived to an old age hiding out in the country side and keeping a low profile. One day however, the “Paper Knife” finally found Tsiao Fong Wei , and exacted his revenge on behalf of the folk, dead and tortured.

After a furious struggle, the “Paper Knife” plunged twin burning candles into the eyes of the traitorous old man and laughed, as Tsiao Fong Wei howled in dismay and pain. Some say Tsiao Fong Wei died that day. Others say that the old man somehow escaped despite his sudden anguish and utter blindness.

The truth is lost to time.

But to this day the children of the Red-Ridge County towns and villages are told by their parents to always beware twin lights in the darkness and to never venture into the woods at night, and to keep an ear open for the Groaning Ghost, for somewhere out there Tsiao Fong Wei the Traitor, now a vengeful spirit, stumbles about the darkness moaning and wailing, candles still sticking forth from out of his otherwise empty eye sockets. And though the candles plunged into his eyes all those years ago were a’flame going in, now the wax protuberances are somehow lit from within and burn without, and two flickering lights in the darkness, always portend his coming.
