The King Crab
Surviving Earth V
The story of the Fire-Born, was already told in older entries, we´ve talked about their air-magnetic bikes, and the fear everyone had of them. But we didnt talk about the ones who resisted them, the Patrollers as the Fire-born called them. In fact the patrollers, were mutch more advanced than their neighbors believed, they were in fact the survivors, of the vast agricultural field workers, of the past. They used to use machines bigger than container ships, not only to plow the fields, but also as transports to the food processing plants on the coast, so when the End came, the ones that whished to stay in the planet and not run away in the mega- ships, were surrounded by heavy machinery. When the End passed, and the time to rebuild arrived, they were already sitting on a treasure. When they got away from the bunker villages, they soon realized how their obsolete machines, had become, the few, that still worked. So, they restarted all of the previous work, and in no time they were already producing tons of food. With the passing of time, they created semi underground cities on the prairie, and also, created a vast net of fences to defend themselfs against Fire-born raiders and mutants. But to patrol this frontier regions, they created the King Crabs, with the reuse of old tec, they ended up developing one of the best walkers untill then. With this new vehicle, they indeed resisted and persisted, against all odds. .
