A century after it was founded by the Athena Project colonists, Haven remains the heart of the human colonization of Poseidon. This campaign sourcebook brings the colonial boomtown to life in vivid detail. Learn how to survive on the crime-ridden canals of the Floats, and make backroom deals with Russian syndicate gangsters in Gorkytown. Network with the rich and powerful in the Biogene Incorporate arcology, and unlock Poseidon's secrets in the research labs of the Haven Institute of Science and Technology. From the winding, shadowed streets of Old Town to breathtaking vistas of Watertop, Haven is a city of prosperity, opportunity, intrigue, and danger.
While the GEO does its best to keep the peace on Poseidon, the colony world is an often lawless frontier. The Gorchoff Family rules the Haven underworld, the New Rastafarian Movement is the only law on Kingston's canals, and throughout the major settlements of the archipelago, petty crooks and nickel-and-dime hustlers lurk in the shadows, feeding off the unlucky and unwary.
More than 100 years after the first human colonists arrived on Poseidon, the waterworld is still an untamed frontier. Lesser whites and pseudoeels lurk beneath the waves, and niños muertos stalk the jungle, and colonists in the wilderness find themselves locked in a deadly and alien food chain. From the planet's savage ecology to the monstrous cyclonic storms that circle the globe, surviving in Poseidon's outback is a challenge for even the most veteran frontiersman.
When Dr. Marcus Gottfried genlifted five bottlenose dolphins to human-level intelligence in 2042, he changed the world forever. For the first time, humans found themselves sharing their planet with another sentient species. Since that time, genlifted bottlenoses—and the other species that joined them—have become influential citizens of both Earth and Poseidon. From Hydrospan to the Athena Project, genlifted cetaceans have come into their own and play prominent roles in all aspects of modern society and civilization.
