Locations:

Sol System:

Mars:

Mars was a communistic republic world-state for many years. It has now mostly embraced democracy and joined into the SOL. The SOL forces though are deeply under-resourced and the Mars RK police are the enforcers of peace. Pirates have infiltrated their ranks. Ones that may not always listen to orders from their superiors. Mars is becoming increasingly dangerous.

Elysium Mons:

Chosen as the site for the first colonists due to the ease of being able to spread the various gases that would be used in the Terraforming process. The Elysium is split into four provenances

Elysium Mons: Shadow Plain 

The main part of the Elysium bulge was renamed the Shadow plain due to the darker mornings on this side of the colossal mountain. The terraforming has made the Shadow Plain valuable farmland. Nearby is the Amazonian reef. The long Shoal river splits first quarter of the plain into two areas. Currently, no bridges span the huge river.

Elysium Mons: Amazonis Planitia

The Amazonis planitia like the Utopia platinia is mostly ocean with a coast made up of parts of the Elysium plateau and the bulge of Abor Tholis. It’s right most part contains islands and reefs which despite their remoteness attract may braver tourists. It is said the Red Clan has a rouge base here have broken off from the Clan to help Mars go back to communism, not a goal of the larger clan.

Elysium Mons: Utopia Planitia

Utopia is mostly ocean.

Elysium Mons: Lowlands

 

Earth:

As part of the SOL administration some old Nation States have administrative bodies that look after the local affairs. As the Incident destroyed many cities and populations these administrations often have big issues to deal with and often have the powers to deal with them. Earth is still gettung used to being in a global government.

The outer belt is now referred to as the Romans

Populated Asteroids / Planatoids
Ceres:

– Chronos: A city / space port. Fiercely independent it is the gateway between the inner and outer system for many. Its like any other boundary place, full of bars, full of people, full of crime and muck. Pirates like to hang out here but it is know neutral territory, though that doesn’t stop them killing each other, it does mean no turf war break out (to often). The Chronos police force are deeply corrupt and will happily turn a blind eye, for the right price.
