TTGI VOTE RESULTS - Terraforming Decision
The Telas TerraGroup Initiative needs its overseers to make a final selection to influence the final outcome of the planet.
Detail: This vote is unique by having multiple options to select from. To 'pass' this decision, one (1) of these five (5) planet tags must get more than 50% to be the final outcome. If no option gets this value, the option with the lowest support will be dropped, and a future chair can put this topic back up. This planet tag will be earned at the conclusion of the terraforming clock.


  • Seagoing Cities: 2
  • Trade Hub: 4
  • Altered Humanity: 1
  • Psionics Academy: 1

Telas TerraGroup Initiative Overseers Board Vote

TTGI Overseers Board Turn 5 Vote: TTGI Funding Reallocation
TTGI Funding Relocation - The Telas TerraGroup Initiative has the Management double-check the accounting books. TTGI reports a small operational surplus; however, it's not enough to return dividends to all investors. Either the Management randomly returns the small surplus to the investors, or the surplus is reinvested with additional funding rounds to accelerate Telas' Terraforming progress.


  1. 3 Unique Random Factions Gain 1 FC
  2. 6 Unique Random Factions Lose 1 FC, But Telas Terraforming clock increases by 1
