Information Westerley



BackgroundEdit

Westerley, the largest of Qresh's three moons, is an industrial site where the lowest economic class of The Quad lives. [1]

Owned by "The Company", the moon is used as a large geo-resource, building an expanding population of workers along the way. The Company's policy of uncontrolled exploitation of the moon's natural resources has made it a dark, sooty, industrial hellhole, and a cesspool replete with sex workers, killers, gamblers and a religious group called Scarbacks.[2] The Company maintains a tight grip on the various operations and workers on Westerley, and is not opposed to using extreme measures such as bombing the cities of Sugar Point and Old Town in retaliation for resistance against the company.[3][4]

Migrant workers travel from Westerley to spend most of the year on Leith, but must return before their work visas expire. Workers that overstay their visa are arrested and the penalty is ten years of hard labor in the Company’s mines extracting yttrium, a rare-earth element, the inhalation of which causes lung disease.[5]

Weather on WesterleyEdit

Black Rain: A lethal electro-acid rain storm that forms in the Badlands as a result of an intense heat wave. Sometimes used by The Company to execute prisoners.[6]

The Seventh Generation AccordEdit

A long time ago the Nine Families of Qresh enacted the Seventh Generation Accord, which declared that if people worked hard and without problems, after seven generations they would be granted land on Leith. That promise is now coming due as families on have worked to gain this land grant under the accord.[9][10]
