First question: Do the colonies have contact with each other and do people move back and forth if they can afford it? Or are the races right now from immigrants decades past?

After the rebellion all contact was lost to the other colonies, five generations ago.

You know, as soon as you said that, I had a deja vu moment. Well, anyway, now we have a thread for those kind of questions so something good came out of it.

I'm wondering exactly what the fuck else is on the Moon. Rust can't be the only town on the moon. I don't expect we have New Phoenix, despite some people's mistakes.

What about places like No Man's, Tram, and the Chinese town, which I can't remember the name of?

Infact, what is the big bad overarching plotty evil that will come and bite us in the ass eventually? Aside from gang politics?

I know some of this is probably in the Wiki, but since we're talking about it. I'd like to know as much as I can. XD

Rust is the only known habitable area on its section of the moon. There are the occasional temporary settlement, bandit camps, etc, but they all stem from Rust.

The major over-arching plot will revolve around the mystery of Hyperion, and things will start happening on that front once the game has begun to find a comfortable balance.

Another important note that came up recently, the various sub-races of humans (Terrans, Martians, Titans, and Calistans) cannot inter-breed.

Also, vines don't exist, never have existed, and will never exist because fuck vines.

Also, the atmospheric generators have been failing and much of the Moon is without breathable air. There could very well be other pockets of atmosphere and other enclaves of people, but if they exist, they cannot be reached at this time due to the lack of technology for traversing areas without atmosphere.

What about drugs? If have bootleg cybernetics, we surely must have backalley drugs?

We will look into that, but it's a bitch to implement a meaningful representation of narcotics. It tends to either be a watered-down prop that people don't care about, or something highly twinkable which causes every combat character to be permanently high for the +3 strength or whatever. We experimented a little with drugs (heh) back on Atonement without giving them coded benefits, and it never really seemed like anybody cared about them for that reason. We'll discuss it and see what options we actually have.

Well back in ARPI drugs were worthless, yeah. They just gave you some neat echoes and that's about it.
But if you could, I dunno...Spice them up somehow? Like maybe they don't buff you - I won't speak for debuffs - But they could add on interesting effects. Think more like scifi drugs, slomo from Judge Dredd for example.

Useless, but neeeat.
