Wayside World

3.5  ·  Rating Details ·  2 Ratings  ·  1 Review
It has been two generations since the war plagues and fireballs left heaps of dead on the now-primitive world of Cleopatra. Ishbok learned to read as he hid in the abandoned libraries until his food gave out, and now his skill for making knives and spear points is keeping him alive on a planet where book knowledge is useless, but inspiration is the key to survival.

On a post-apocalyptic colony world, the remnants of human civilisation have degenerated into a life resembling our worst conceptions of cavemen. The strong and brutish survive. Unfortunately, Ishbok is a man who, in our society, would probably have become a nerdy geek. Bullied, and rejected by his love interest, it doesn't look like there's much hope for him - until visitors arrive from the skies.
