An Organic Hell
A failed colony is on the planet. A small village is quite accepting of people coming to the planet, but have a quiet strength that is nearly unable to be broken. They are the descendants of the original colonial founders, but the fauna is starting to encroach a little more of late.
There is a small proto colony floating on the ocean. Looking to the future it is bright, but that is far in the future and is not bringing the current colonists hope.
