Planetary Info[edit]

Yance I's first colonists were Amish and Mennonites. These groups traveled to Yance I hoping to find a Terra-like world that would let them practice their faith and allow them to shed the technology that had become so prominent on Terra. In this they were successful. Yance I was a beautiful world with conditions nearly identical to that of Terra. Their excitement was short-lived however. The planet has four continents, Alameda, Ausdaner, Brisbane and Neuhoffen [1]

The initial survey of the world missed the presence of the world's apex predator, the Black Reaper. This carnivore looked and behaved much like the Terran puma, but had a prehensile tail equipped with spikes and was 50% larger. The black reaper quickly targeted the colonists as a new food supply. The walls the colonists erected as protection could easily be scaled or jumped over by the reapers, and the primitive firearms the colonists had were useless against the reaper's tough hide. Moving the settlements didn't help because the reapers simply followed the colonists. In desperation the colonists acquired modern infantry weapons and lasers that could kill the reapers. These weapons saved the colony from destruction, but their introduction was the first step to overturning the beliefs that formed the core of the colony.[1][35]

By the time of the Star League Yance I had been heavily industrialized on one continent, including the presence of a small arms factory. The original settlers (and those who wanted to get away from technology) moved to the continent of Neuhoffen. After the fall of the Star League, the Combine took control of the world and moved the inhabitants of Neuhoffen into smaller and smaller enclaves to gain access to the minerals available on the continent. By the end of the Jihad the Amish and Mennonite population had been reduced to a shadow of their former selves, serving more as a tourist attraction or living history exhibit than a culture.[1]
