Founded only recently, Adagis 5 is a colony made up of Terran 
colonists mainly from the geographical region of Scotland, although there 
are people of other origins.  The original population was only 5 000, but 
was boosted by artificial reproduction to around 100 000.  This supply of 
fertilised ova has run out, but the population is growing at a steady rate.


Latinum based.  Agrarian.  Self-sufficient, with few exports.  
Mining is done in the mountains, mainly for precious stones which are 
traded for limited technology.  The colony is still too young to have built 
up a strong export/import base, although tourism may be an option.

Tech Level: 

Out on a limb, it is technologically backward, relying on 
combustion engines and animals for transport.  Adagis does have modern 
education satellites, and shuttles for ground transport, but for the main 
part, the populace rely on wheel-based transport for local transportation.


The system of government on Adagis is composed of the Governing 
Council of Ruling Lords.  Each Lord holds sway over a section of Adagis, 
and represents the needs and wants of the citizens within that area.  The 
Lord himself holds council regularly, to which any citizen may appear to 
file a petition.  The Lord is honour-bound to resolve any matters put 
before him.  Ruling Lords are hereditary positions, based on a traditional 
Scottish family (Macintosh, Dougall, etc).  There are twenty such Ruling 


Adagis 5 is slightly colder than Earth, being similar to Scotland 
in its more temperate regions.  The poles are unexplored, being too cold.  
Dotted with mountains and lakes, the land is relatively untouched, with 
farms dotted across the landscape.  Most travel between cities and the 
outlying districts is by shuttle, the rest is by combustion engine 
vehicles.  Plans are going ahead to remove this potential for pollution, 
but it will prove costly.  To improve this situation, production in the 
mines is being improved in order to boost import/exports and tourism is 
being envisaged.  The only problem with this is the isolation of the 

Because of the patriarchal nature of the culture, Adagian colonists have 
difficulty responding to females in positions of power, although they are 
not averse to it.  Colonists also tend to be rather tall, and lightweight, 
requiring regular doses of Tri-ox in normal Earth atmospheres unless their 
lungs are artificially enhanced.

A great tradition on Adagis is The Chase.  Here, colonists carry long 
spears, and beat out boars from the forests.  By standing in front of the 
boars, they are able to spear them.  Killing a boar is considered a mark of 
maturity, and is often used as a rite of manhood.
