Mars is the main location and setting in the game The Technomancer. Mars was colonised more than 20 years ago by Earth colonists. At that time the colonies were scattered enclaves in regions suitable for human and animal habitation and sustained by the controlled proliferation of vegetable organisms that generated a breathable atmosphere. Cities quickly grew on the Red Planet and agricultural zones, mines, breeding areas and research centres were established to allow the colonists to be self-sufficient. The long-term objective was to create a new Earth… but the process was rudely interrupted well before it was completed.
