Ok--- I have read into the site a bit and the lore and others comments on the Settlements and such. Being a Mech supporter from the old days of Paper, Pen and 2d6, I like what I see and hope that any small contribution will be appreciated by someone. With that said I will start this thread out with a beginning idea and continue to add to it depending on the response from the community. Bear in mind I am still working time lines on the history and that of how it ties into the current situation on K-9Gamma. Along with a map and layout of the "Settlement"
As my time is limited tonight I will post the beginning or as much as i have compiled so far and continue to add to and manipulate. Hope you enjoy, or at least spark something in the mind of someone that will make the game more enjoyable. So without further ramblings.....

BACKGROUND:Terran Masonics history is shrouded in mystery, dating back to ancient times on Terra. The secret society of wealthy and influential people, including many of the original Financiers and Venturists, the Masonics have quietly manipulated the course of mankind and society.
Upon the introduction of the alien race known as the Nâ€™Rezza, the Masonics took advantage of their high ranking officials and dignitaries to cultivate a relationship with the Nâ€™Rezza, grasping hold of the advanced technology of the far more advanced race. This advanced knowledge among the Masonics afforded them with advanced technology, which allowed the manipulation of certain Clashes, including the infamous engagement between Tiberius Mackenzie of The Lukron Corporation and â€œThe Slackâ€. After the brutal display of Tiberius Mackenzie, there were rumors that began that the Nâ€Rezza had their proverbial hand in the outcome, or proposed outcome. The Masonics, fearing that their involvement in the volatile conflict would be discovered, quickly and discreetly disposed of any ties with the Nâ€™Rezza, including the highest ranking and oldest member, Clarence Philius.
Clarence Philius was on the Board of Directors of The Senka Corporation. His rival in the clandestine group was Marcus Denian, a well liked Champion of the Genoma Corporation, who was more than willing to carry out the â€œCleansingâ€ of Philius personally. The Masonics, left rattled from the deposition of itâ€™s oldest and most trusted member were thrust into a bitter rivalry war within the society. Secret wars were being waged between the differing factions and their supporters, which fractured the society into splinters, clawing at each other for supremacy.
Marcus Denian bore 3 children during the time of â€œCleansingâ€ and the years that followed, Daniel, Jami, and Nathan. Being a futurist and visionary, Marcus split his children to be raised in the competing Corporations the 3rd child Nathanâ€™s fate is unknown. Daniel was to be Genoma, and bear the genetic enhancement and gene manipulation to rise in the ranks of the Genoma Military arm, with all the rank and regalia due to that of noble linage and honor. Jami would receive the reluctant support of a lower member of the society who sponsored the Denian offspring in the Senkan Mining operation. Unknown to The Masonics, Nathan was to be under the guidance and tutelage of the Nâ€™Rezza
