From Rise: The Vieneo Province
These are the workers, lemmings, employees, non-playing characters (NPC) of the Rise universe. They are required at colonies and are available at cities like Deois. They work for free but require housing, commodities, and certain working conditions that affect their morale and ultimately their productivity.
The staffing requirements of a colony are indicated so that the colony runs around the clock. The colonists are allowed to have families (create new colonists) and also have a mortality. The gestation period through adolescence is not reported on the colony count - all available colonists can be considered contributing to the productivity of the colony.
scotmurie was once quoted when describing a colonists life a flagon of beer of an evening then, home to the wife and the family.
