Wizards' Worlds

 

 

Synopsis ~

After Earth's devastating atomic wars, mutations began cropping up ~ notably the Espers. Once respected, then warily tolerated for their wild talents, all Espers are now either trapped in labor camps, hunted fugitives, or - worst of all - traitors, serving as trackers to hunt down fugitives. Craike, an Esper now hoping only for a quick death before he can be forced to betray his allies to the hunters only minutes behind him, climbs to the top of a rocky gorge in the desert, flings himself from the brink ~ and falls into a foaming river where no river could be! His desperation and Esper talent have somehow unlocked a gate between realities, into another world.
