The SetupColony Name: Pyre
Species: 98% Human, 2% Other
Population: 1.8 Million
Description: As its name suggests, Pyre is an exceptionally hot world with an uninhabitable equatorial region. Colonists have succeeded in establishing stable settlements in its rocky but more temperate polar regions, though seasonal brushfires remain a serious issue.
The original Aspiration colony was established by independently minded humans, willing to risk the dangers of the Terminus to escape Alliance oversight. Their resolve was quickly put to the test as they came under repeated attacks from roving bands of pirates and slavers. Throughout all this violence the colonists have endured and survived, earning them a reputation as stubborn and fierce frontiersmen.
Settlements across Pyre are relegated to the polar regions, with the largest and de facto capital being Aspiration in the northern hemisphere. Each settlement is largely autonomous, only being required to answer to a central authority in times of invasion. Each region is governed by its own set of laws that can vary largely between settlements. In recent years Pyre’s success has encouraged a growing influx of new colonists both human and otherwise, though this has caused some tension with the original settlers.
Five weeks after the Battle of the Citadel at the climax of the Eden Prime War, some ancient ruins (possibly Prothean or even older) were discovered just a few miles outside Aspiration. This has led to a near planet-wide panic, as the eyes of the galaxy now turn towards the colony. The local government has reasserted its independence from both the Alliance and Citadel Council but has tentatively granted permission for each government to send researchers to the site. In the meantime, various Terminus warlords are massing their forces near the system, likely preparing for an invasion. Unwilling to become the next Eden Prime, Pyre’s population has begun making preparations for all-out war.

So this is what I've come up with for our setting. If everyone is happy with it we can proceed, if not there can be tweaks as needed. You can post your character sheets below and I'll make a link to the rp thread once I have it up. Thanks again to everyone who took interest, I've really been looking forward to this.
