It's worth mentioning not only because it's a brilliant community here, but because Terramagne-America has a lot more intentional communities than local-America does. Many of them look like this: a small cluster of houses and common buildings, usually handmade by the residents, with a much larger spread of farm and/or wilderness around them. The Rutledge thread includes Emerald Mountain Glen, a hippie commune; and LunaRest, an artist colony.
Many of the Indian reservations have followed a similar path, concluding that the government wasn't going to provide decent housing so they built their own. Hence Rocky Boy's Reservation with its roundhouses.
