It offers up one last gift to the poisoned surface and the mutant life forms that survive there; a new species. Up until now the creatures of fiction, these new beings must determine the purpose of their being. Are they only the violent spawn of mankindís evil doomed to a soulless eternity or the progenitors of a better more hopeful world?
