During whatever happened to Artian-01-04, the amount of chatter coming out of Progress' Reach was massive. Did they know what happened?Progress' Reach was set up to be the ultimate in utilitarian mining cities. Gleaming buildings, smart roads that kept track of employees walking on them, several eateries featuring a variety of Sasashi, human and Verin cuisine, and a large, imperious building in the middle that served as their link to The Jupiter Syndicate.
Critics of Progress' Reach described the city as 'too formal', 'too stiff' and 'stifling to the employees'. The Jupiter Syndicate read these complaints, and lovingly took them into consideration for the next mining and excavation planet, as this one was already completed as the complaints came through.
