Population: Approximately 7,000
Official Name: Gamma Site
Unofficial Planet Name(s): Earth II, New Earth, Gamma World, Middle Finger, Eden, New Eden, New Earth, Midworld, Midguard, Purgatory
Government: Currently under loose military control; future government will be a town council to be lobbied and elected when the game begins.
Location: The Gamma Site is located on a planet in a G2 solar system. The planet is a bit larger than earth when a longer revolution and rotation. Days are approximately 28 hours long, and the year is sixteen months. (Note: It took a full "year" for a calendar to be designed. The months are: January, February, March, April, May, May II, June, June II, July, August, August II, September, September II, October, November, December.)
Situated in a temperate area of the planet, the Gamma Site is located on an inland bay with close proximity to a river which supplies fresh water initially. It is hoped that in the future, the uses of the river will be expanded.
"Gamma Site," refers to both the planet and the colony site, including two smaller satellite sites of less than 500 colonists each that grew out of lumber jacking, foresting and scouting expeditions. When specifying a site, official names are "Gamma Prime," "Gamma Two," and "Gamma Three." (Though all variations have developed their own "unofficial" names over time.)
Flora & Fauna: To be updated
Animal Life: To be updated
Jobs/Occupations: Because this is a new colony, and not earth with all the amenities and luxuries (running water, indoor plumbing, electricity, etc), some people will find that their "old" job skills on earth are particularly useless. They will have to learn new skills and new jobs. An exhaustive list of occupations is here, and even this might not be complete.
