Knowledge of the past...

Phillip still couldn't believe the changes this world had gone through whilst he slumbered safely in the Cryo Facility… then again, fifty years was a long time…

Within his first month on the road, he had to adapt to this new world and it's challenges… more than once, someone desperate enough to kill him for his shoes, had caved. It was bad at first, and he would always remember the first attack. After stomping the poor wretch who charged him, he had risen and immediately had to vomit, as a result of the realisation of what he'd done. He even gave him a proper burial. Soon however, he got used to the fights, although he did everything to avoid them. After three weeks or so, he came upon a native warrior, who told him where to find some shelter and protection for a couple of days…

In the enclave, Phillip had learnt some things about himself, and he knew just how long he was out cold, but unfortunately that didn't do much to answer the questions he had. After leaving the enclave however, he happened to find a stack of newspapers in the cellar of an old apartment building. He eagerly read the stories, although they were forty years old. Suddenly however, he had an idea… Not many people would be able to tell him what had happened in the fifty years, even fewer would want to tell him. However, if he had already encountered newspapers from forty years ago, there would surely be others. He would use them to piece together the last five decades, as good as he could. More than likely, knowing what had happened would also help him understand the world he faced now, and maybe could also tell him the role he had played in the old world he still knew.
