Among the ashes of WW3 and dust of climate collapse, pockets of civilisation have thrived, thanks to the efforts of a dedicated few. Now, after nearly a century of peace, humanity's legacy is once more under threat. As the equatorial desert expands, resources dwindle, memory fades, and civilisation once more teeters on the brink of oblivion. If these scattered guardians of humanity's legacy can unite their efforts, humanity might stand a chance of survival ... if only they knew each other existed.
