The Gash Generation

The generation born in the aftermath of the cataclysmic Asteroid Shear of 2096 — which tore a long gash across the Continent, killing millions — became known as the Gash Generation.

They grew up in an intense but exhilarating era of renovation, innovation, humanitarianism and collaboration. Together, with an unprecedented degree of cooperation and good will, they rebuilt their 11 nations, and in the process, began to dissolve centuries — in some cases, millennia — of national, racial and ethnic antagonisms. The 3 preceding generations had already begun to achieve greater social maturity due to trends in genetic screening.

The Gash Generation marked a significant turning point in Luratia’s planetary history. They were the first to evolve an ethic of positive social relations, founded on love, respect, kindness and cooperation.
