Mephistopolis: Colony: Year One
By: Beau Aaron Curtis
About the Book
Does Humanity have the ability to inhabit and sustain life on other planets? In Mephistopolis it does, but the original colony, named Colony: Year One, was the failed attempt left in smoking ruins. What led to the fall of the Colony? Who is left, and how do they survive?
Not much is known other than the fact that Earth has abandoned the people of Colony: Year One on a planet without an orbiting sun. In the aftermath of the great war that tore the whole Colony apart, those who survive are left desolate on isolated 'Sanctuary Cities' still up and running. As the people of Mephistopolis watch on, the lights of the other Sanctuary Cities are slowly blinking out.
