Thoughtful Games

Alex the Shepherd


Keeps a caring eye on everyone. Turns the ideas of a team into concrete actions and practical plans. Psychology. Leadership.

We all signed up for 20 years of working for the foundation, building the colony. They provide food and lodging and we promise to not run away. Like there is anywhere to run. With a big bonus paid out at the end and who knows what happens then? Maybe become a custodian, showing around the schoolkids and tell them of the old Mars. Or enjoying life with my Martian grandchildren.
