Welcome to New Hope, a mostly all water world. Humans made it here thousands of years ago - barely. The few that managed to survive the journey have been building with the help of ancient knowledge. Two competing nations have arisen - Hadar (the original colony) and Greenland (the primary agricultural producer for all nations). Sea travel is extremely hazardous on New Hope but ship technology has progressed rapidly to an approximate equivalent of Earth's early 1900s. War has begun over the limited land resources of this planet.
