Oh I misunderstood the Garian comment, I thought you WANTED them to go there.
I am now a much bigger fan of having them stay near Brink. If they are craftspeople and foragers, they could be a really valuable workforce for various projects to improve the settlement we are trying to build in the sacred lands. I think Brink would be a break for them compared to the Origin, I think they’ll want to stay close to the Trueforge and Braig, I think they’re not a delicate people if they survived the origin and many of them have robot bodies, I think Braig will want to be able to keep an eye on them, and the closer they are the less he’ll have to worry about one culture or another abusing them.
One possible flaw is they may be around when the Choir finds a way through or when prey gets sent through the portal. But I think we can do a pretty good job defending them here on our home turf. And as a resource, they could be invaluable.
There’s two big questions with a resettlement of this magnitude: What is best for them, and how can we create the most positive change with our decision? The first question is largely up to them, though we should absolutely discuss it. As to the second question, I think keeping them here could help transform them from a people who rely on powers beyond their ken into a people who are taking an active role in their own salvation, maybe even real freedom fighters. And I’d love to interact with them more which won’t happen as much if we send them far away.
I don’t think they should be settling on another people’s lands, especially when we have a settlement we’re trying to grow right here.
I do however think Caeden is a great second choice, as it solves the problem we fought a war over and it’s only really dangerous if they wander into the cities. They’re not idiot children, they will understand “If you go into the cities you get sick”. But I’m not nearly as big a fan of this idea as I am of having them settle in Brink, unless someone has said something that would make that impossible.
