Overview

In the fall of 2012, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, embarked on a series of high-energy experiments. No one knows exactly what went wrong, but in the blink of an eye, thousands of possible universes all condensed into a single reality . . . .
Between a desert and a dried up sea lies the town of Watering Hole, the only oasis for miles and the home of our intrepid heroes Shaani and Xoota. After some rather harrowing adventures in the desert, they are followed home by a swarm of empathic earwigs.  As if a psychic bug infestation weren't enough, the town's water supply has suddenly died up. Where there was once fresh water to spare, there is only a trickle of brackish sludge.
Theorizing that the water came from a source beyond the desert, Shaani proposes an expedition to re-establish the town's water supply. Xoota, of course, is voted to go with her. Crossing the desert has never been done--and with water in short supply, the task seems impossible. But the ever-helpful Shanni appeals to the town patron Benek, and his love of cryogenically frozen brides, to back the project. What follows is the adventure of a thousand lifetimes.

Xoota is a khajiit! How can this be D&D if there are no cat races in D&D? Theres Dragonborn. Those closely resemble Argonians. Except for the hair thing. If this is D&D then why are the charecters useing Elder Scrolls dialoge and are Elder Scrolls races?

first time Paul Kidd read, like him. 1st time gamma world exposure, want more. Reading Science fiction, fantasy for 43 years or more, know what I like. "nuff said."

As a gamer who has dabbled in the fallout universe and plays a bit of tabletop gaming as well, I saw this as 'fallout with furries' just by looking at the cover. This being my first encounter with gamma world and Paul Kidd as an author, I was presently surprised once I started reading. However, I think it would make more scene if you played gamma world before reading this or you'll start thinking like I did and think back anything from fallout. Overall, It's a good read for those who like post-Apocalypse type settings and craziness that rivals the shinanagins that happens in a game of DnD.
