Harvest and The Barrier
Life is pre-industrial in The Preserve. The people farm, mine, and craft much like their ancestors did, before the changes. Here we see a farm, in the distance are the mountains, and beyond them rising impossibly high is the barrier wall. The barrier encloses as much land as most of the country of Germany, so the wall disappears into the horizon from every point a person looks at it. It is ubiquitous, timeless, and completely impassable.
