Colechester

Colechester is a classical smalltown Americana nestled in the Northwest of Ithaca, New York. It was founded in 1928, by Miriam Colechester, who sought to create an entire town based on Futurist ideas that she encountered when she was abroad in Italy. Once she sent out advertisements, many artists, scholars, and others from the city flocked to the area and began creating a town with the aesthetics of both futurism and the upcoming Art-Deco with such strong Humanist roots, they ensured the town would remove as much prejudice from the new town, they saw it as a new starting point for the country, pulling away from it's uglier roots.

Guilds and Factions

The Research lab often conflicts with the Colechester Council over funding, as the Council wants to keep the majority of the budget for the School system. The research lab, while subsidized by the federal government, doesn't get enough from the government to break even.

Architecture

Much of the old town was crafted in the Art Deco tradition. even after the movement ended, every new development kept the style, leading to a unique style for the entire town, no matter when it was made.
