The colony on Adrasta is the newest colony established by earth. Adrasta is Mars-like, though its gravity is stronger than Mars', yet still weaker than Earth's. It is not large, perhaps 1,000 people. It is a mix of singles and families, and the age range is between infancy and about 68 years old; any older, and the physical work becomes too difficult to be done. Most people live in domes, connected to each other through tunnels, somce of which are aboveground, some of which are not. There are two "greenhouse" domes, where most of the food for the colony is grown. There are multiple living domes; no one has their own, but each unit has their own space. Singles typically have a roommate, and families are housed together. It is mostly peaceful, as everyone in the colony knows that too much conflict could be catastrophic in these early years. Everyone knows the story of the Typhon colony and what happened there (spoiler alert: nothing good).
Even so, there is still conflict every now and again. Every colony has ex-convicts, some of whom are good people and some of whom…aren't, and Adrasta is no exception to this. Some were given this chance as an opportunity to help rehabilitate them. Others signed up voluntarily. The vast majority of those in the colony, though, are law-abiding citizens whose worst crime is perhaps a traffic violation or two.
The colony has been around for about two years by now, and they've settled into a rhythm, a close community perfectly capable of running themselves. However, a few days after the New Year's Celebration, disaster strikes, and our characters must band together if they are to survive.
Basically a found family mystery RP? Romance is totally allowed, just discuss it beforehand. Romance between adults and minors is not permitted (obviously there's a difference between an 18 yr old and a 17 yr old and a 30 yr old and a 17 yr old. Just use common sense). Idk. I have some ~roles~ listed, but if you have a different idea put it forward and we'll discuss it. Ages listed by character descriptions are there so we don't end up with teens that are way too advanced lol. If you want your character to be younger than I've listed, put forward your reasoning and we'll discuss it. Honestly, if you have any questions/ideas, we can discuss them, I'm pretty open.
