Description: After aeons of searching and disapointment, humanity has finally rediscovered its planet of origin. Unlike the glorious "cradle of all life" depicted in countless legends, Earth is little more than a depleted mudball, the sad cosmic equivalent of the abandoned lot you'd find next to a really obscure intergalactic truck stop. But humanity is not the same, either. Finding no other forms of life in the galaxy, humans have lost all connection to their original form in adapting to many, many different environments. Roving "authorities" of genetically-similiar cultures make their way across the stars, from terraformed world to terraformed world. Once they lived in relative peace, but the hapless discovery of the Great Homeworld has already begun to stir up trouble.
