It failed miserably yet none of the researchers and historians have been able to uncover exactly why, After 10 years of trying the colony was abandon to focus on the thriving Fern’s Hope colony. After 30 years of developing the Fern’s Hope colony attention began to focus again on Fern’s Folly.
Currently Fern’s Folly is mostly industrial waist land and over used soil seems to be the norm. A medium sized population for a planet exists to man the deep crust mining shafts and manufacturing not allowed on Fern’s Hope. On the equator where the original Clone colony ship landed is a destination resort and a small tourist city. the city is plagued by panhandlers, bums, and shysters of all sort. This small city is known for it’s thriving gambling economy with all the modern day vices catered to.
It is rumored that the Syndicate has a few money laundering casinos set up here with a very strong presence in the protection racket. Most visitors though would not even suspect this as the area is for the most part kept clean and orderly by both the law and the underworld. A truce seems also to exist here between the two sides of the law.
