We were busy creating
the history but the message board where the history was located sadly
can't be opened anymore. Below is a short summary of the history as
far as I can remember.
We find ourselves on
the colonial spaceship Hyantis bound for an unknown destination. On
board are a large population of humans, a seed data bank the settlers
can use to recreate useful Terran flora and fauna on their new planet.
The ship is loaded with useful materials to help the settlers in their
Along the way disaster of course strikes and the spaceship is forced
to land on a small planet in the vicinity. It is the only planet that
seems capable of human inhabitation and there is no time to argue. The
ship crashes around the planet's equator in a desert area.
Having been prepped for a similar situation, the settlers waste no
time in setting up a base camp at the crash site. At first the crew
takes stat of what survived the crash and what didn't. Lives were lost
and a lot of the material can't be salvaged. Some remnants of the seed
data bank survive. For instance the letter "C" has survived
with items such as "coffee" - a blessing for most people,
"camels" - a useful way of transport in their current
predicament, and "cockroaches" - a mystical message that
maybe they are the most ideal creature ever evolved.
Decisions are made and a part of the crew stays behind to care for the
survivors and try to salvage as much of the space ship. Even the hull
itself is a valuable resource. Another part of the crew take the newly
replicated camels and venture out into the desert, searching for a
more hospitable region.
Both parties soon encounter the nex necii. A dangerous breed of
insectoids that look like praying mantises. The crew at the landing
site can fend them off by hiding in the spaceship but more equipment
is lost in the attack. The crew with the camels is out in the open and
they seem to face a gruesome dead when they're suddenly rescued by an
armada of draks. The duowinged, furred creature spit their acid and
drive off the nex necii.
After the battle, first contact between humans and draks is made. The
reconnaissance team returns to the crash site with the draks. The
intelligent draks learn to communicate with the humans in simple
conversations in as few as the 3 days it takes them to travel back to
the ship. At the site they help ferry passengers and equipment south
to the site where Castle DeCorvo will be erected.
Over the coming years the settlers do what they can to build a basic
society, relying on the draks for transport and defense while building
castles meant for defense and towns to house their growing numbers.
Humans and draks learn to mind pair, creating a stronger bond to fight
the nex necii and finally drive the dangerous creatures back to the
most deserted areas of the planet.
