The Three Colonies
The Three Colonies take up a forty square kilometer region of Safeharbor. The region has three settlements: Juliet, Dawn, and Autumn. Collectively the population ranges around 10,000, all of which are human. The region is nestled in the ruins of a city. Safeharbor is an ecumenopolis, a planet wide city. While much of the planet has been reclaimed by nature, large sections of the city still stand. Humans use these structures as homes and for protection. The buildings surround the settlements like a wall, keeping much of the wildlife on Safeharbor outside. This region marks the extent of humanities influence over the planet. Past this region, the planet is mostly unexplored. Homebound, an organization of Wayfarers, make it their mission to venture further and expand humanities control. Even within this region, control isn't quite the best word to use. The settlements remain walled off, and protected, but the roads between them are filled with obstructions, hostile fauna, and unstable structures. It's not uncommon for those living in the colonies to feel a rumbling underfoot. They turn to search for the source, and spot towers crumbling under their own weight, no longer able to scrape the sky. Every time this happens, it displaces wildlife, creates obstacles for those traveling between the colonies, and potentially threatens lives if it happens near the colonies, themselves.
