Tidbits and Geography

["Tidbits and Geography","","The timeline help file is rather large so here are a few tidbits that players should be aware of.","","Our timeline slightly turns from reality, but does not exclude it, in 1965. In that we go into space, set up trade relations and businesses after we first contacted another race in 1972.","","Humans were involved in the great space industry boom of the late 1900's. They set up shop, but did not govern, in the Farold city of Oria. They were also welcomed to travel throughout the galaxy and expand their businesses. Some of the things that they brought to Kapteynia, and possibly other places, were vegetation, animals and technology.","","The Kiohns began a campaign to wipe all of humanity from the galaxy in 2017. It was felt that the humans were gaining too much power and this power is something that the Kiohn race wished to have. They all but destroyed earth and some areas surrounding Oria in this attempt. Being as the trade industry extended beyond Oria, the Kiohns hit other places in surrounding areas in attempts to take out the humans.","","The Farolds saw fit to aid the humans so that they would have a chance to not become extinct. They rushed 300,000 human beings into the caverns and cryogenics chambers.","","Though the Farolds have been quite helpful to humans, there is much we do not know about them. They are secretive with most of their dealings. Humans do have a general understanding of Farold culture which has adopted some of human culture over the years. Most notably, some farolds have adopted human names rather than their traditional method of naming. For example, LeeLee might have been known as such or could now be known as Lee if her Farold mother chose a more human style of naming her child.","","The city of Oria is around 225 square miles in size. Its population is around 1,800,900 Farolds and nearly 70,000 humans. The precise population of the Farold race cannot be determined because most of them travel but their records office indicates that it is at least 3.5 billion Farolds. Rumor has it that they have three more home bases around the galaxy but this has not been proven. Nor do humans know what other races the Farolds may conduct business with.","","About a mile and half north of Oria, lies the vast Tamre jungle. It is around 2,230 square miles in size. Both unsubstantiated and factual accounts have been given about the creatures that dwell within this extremely dangerous place. Some say they are creatures that have mated with those brought from earth, making some weird new creatures. While others say there are mutated creatures that most likely have had issues with radiation deep within the jungle. Still others say that these are some creatures earth children used to read about in books. There are infrequent stories of mutated humans in the vast region. This is the reason that the great north wall was placed at Oria. There is always a security detail at the wall, and to this day, no creature has ever gotten into the city. Surveillance has shown that the creatures rarely inhabit the southern most 5 square miles of the jungle.","","The HPA first fleet is what you will enter into as you decide to become a pilot. Assume that there are other pilots, you are just a member of this first fleet, which will hold pilot idea and decision making power. After the HPA first comes up with a decision, assume that time is given for the remainder of the human community to weigh in. We do this so that you don't have to pretend their are hundreds of pilots at a meeting you might call. Also, it will be easier to say, yes there are other pilots out there but I know the members of my group well."]
