-Long ago, gravity generators worked to stretch atmospheres across the Moon. After the Liberation however, random pockets of atmosphere and gravity are dotted all over the Moon. ParallelRPI will focus on one such pocket where Rust and its surrounding environment is. Should one walk further and further out from the pocket, the thinner the gravity and atmosphere becomes. The Moon, even after extensive terra-forming and construction, remains a relatively barren land. Though such pockets provide atmosphere and gravity, little grows due to the lack of water in the soil. Much of the Moon is arid and almost desert-like. Its landscape is basically comprised of hard packed dirt, plains, craters, a few peaks, and sturdy but strangled shrubs here and there. Finding food in the wilderness is nearly unheard of - a sure and quickfire way to die.+Long ago, gravity generators worked to stretch atmospheres across the Moon.

 Each Moon day is the equivalent of fourteen earth days of light, followed by fourteen earth days of night; twenty-eight earth days is equal to one Moon day. The sunlight during the times of day is exceptionally harsh, and solar radiation remains a very real threat with the lack of an ozone layer. As a result, many resolve to wear full body suits, dusters, and other such clothing that completely covers the body. These troubles are further expounded by the occasional, harsh solar winds - charged particles that escape from the sun because of their high kinetic energy and the high temperature of the sun's corona. Without a magnetic field such as the ones present on Earth, or Jupiter, the Moon takes the full brunt of solar winds. These winds are devastatingly powerful, capable of whipping across the surface at lethal speeds, upturning structures ill-constructed, generally laying destruction in its wake. Each Moon day is the equivalent of fourteen earth days of light, followed by fourteen earth days of night; twenty-eight earth days is equal to one Moon day.
