I received a concept drawing this week of a main character in the first PHJ book. Mayana comes from an evolutionary colony which is shorthand for: we dump you on a planet with some tools and you do the best you can. Theoretically, the arkship has the tools and knowledge base to ramp the colonists’s development quickly though ten stages of industrialization. That didn’t go well on Timora. I’ve added a short scene from the book which we’ll probably cut (the betas are weighing in this month) which offers a glimpse into everyday life on the planet. On the Stories page.
