“TERRA NOVA EX ANTIQUIS” —emblem of the Reclamation Project
Spearheaded by technologically advanced humans from their network of flying cities (also referred to as the High Cities), the Reclamation Project’s goal is to Bring Civilization Back to a world they believe has fallen into barbarism. They control wide territories that they use for agriculture, mining for resources, etc., and will be the first to tell you that they “bring prosperity and technological advance” to those regions. It’s not untrue, but it’s also a fact that 90% of the benefits from Reclamation are sent straight up to those floating cities, while the people down on the ground still often lead hard lives.
Originally the “Ambara Survey and Reclamation Initiative” created by High Empyros, at the beginning of “Year One” of the anthology series it has become a larger umbrella organization encompassing most of the flying cities.
The various furry folk tend to refer to all humans as ‘Claimers, but this is misleading. The Reclamation Project is a specific international organization that considers the flying cities to be true nations, and the various furry settlements on the surface below as “rogue states.” While the official view of RP is that furries are sapient beings with autonomy and “human rights,” there are human-supremacist factions that consider all the other species as squatters or “talking beasts that have gotten uppity.”
The RP has many faces, from well-dressed dignitaries with exquisite manners, to no-nonsense brigadiers in berets, to idealistic anthropologists who genuinely want peace and love for all, to furry mercenary enforcers who don’t care whose mouth the bread is torn from as long as they get a piece. The RP builds railroads and hospitals and reliable food supply chains, but those are support structures for a humans-first agenda. The decision of whether to work for, work against, or simply duck and avoid the ‘Claimers is rarely a clear-cut, all-or-nothing affair.
The icon of the Reclamation Project is a green orb surrounded by a blue circle; this is then superimposed or paired with another symbol to indicate subdivisions. (For instance, RP security services have the green-orb-and-blue-circle superimposed over a red chevron, while RP administrative services have the orb and circle inside a navy lozenge.)
