Far beyond the edge of civilization lies an indifferent planet orbiting a dying K-type main sequence star. A hurried initial survey pronounced it habitable. This evidence, plus its great distance from anything of worth or note, made it an ideal candidate for a penal colony.If you agreed to try Durance, please get a game in between now and 30 November and let me know how it goes.
