All hailing from Earth, player characters should have a reasonable understanding of Earth history up until the point they were put into cryo for the journey.
The character background should reflect this. You could be a pioneer, part of a family or other group, a trained scientist, colony builder, ships crew, unwanted prisoner, part of a banned religion, and so on. It is up to you to create a rich character background which the refs can use and expand upon as part of the off world colony.

All players will be part of 'Unity', the biggest of the new colonies set up by the survivors. This will be their home base for upcoming adventures.
So you wish to learn about the world, eh? Alright. I ain't as good as the terminal, but I can tell you what I know.
When the ship landed, the whole world knew about it, literally. We lost a fair few in the crash, most of those died, but some ran off or escaped. Seems we had some prisoners sent with us as a way to make room on Earth. No matter now, we are all stuck in the same boat.
Lots of people died through the years. Lots. But a lot of us survived and created the colonies that you have heard of now. We are the main one, I think, called Unity, or just home if you will. There are four more colonies we know around here. 'Terra', the home of The Children of Gaia, 'The Fortress', base of the 1st Arcadian Militia, 'Aurora', The Shining Dawn's colony, and 'Stinker', a colony run by the Kroftukh gangs.
I tell you what. Pull up a chair to the terminal and I will show you around, the best information is kept there and updated regular like, by us all. You will need a login, but you get to update the records when you want.
