The Earth has been devastated by tragedy.
After an alien voice broadcasts a Countdown around the world, all life above water ages 50 years. All plant and animal life is gone in an instant, and all humans age 50 years. The stars change, signaling the Earth has traveled to a new location. The survivors are faced with two daunting tasks; how do they recover from disaster, and how can they prevail?
The children of the new generation will try.
Prototype. Archetype. Grunt. They are the three classes of the new Homestead. Children who must learn the technology of the old world to rebuild it. Children entrusted with the survival of humanity. Children who want to enjoy their childhood, instead of pulling dead bodies from the fallen cities, or have sex to continue the species.
The Seventh Age of Man has begun. There is no guarantee that there will be an Eighth.
The Seventh Age of Man begins with Regeneration, continues in Maturation, and concludes in Dessication.
