Tomorrow-Morrow Land was a mythical location embedded in the tales of The Lost Tribe and corresponded to the civilization that existed before the "Pox-eclipse". In reality, it is the remains of pre-Fall Sydney, Australia.


What little information the children from the Crack in the Earth had about the location they came from was gradually turned into lore. With help of word-of-mouth storytelling and a few slides that had barely any connection with each other, the Lost Tribe created a legend where the Tomorrow-Morrow Land was their place of origin with "high scrapers," "rivers of light," "sky raft" and their "savior" - Captain Walker. It was civilization as they once knew it.

The images they had of this place are, in fact, pictures of Sydney from before the Pox-eclipse. Sydney became a dangerous place after the fall as bandits and weather took a toll on the survivors, forcing many to flee the ruined city and find safety in the Wasteland. Sandstorms blanketed the city over the many years, burying numerous buildings and blocking roads as well as turning the bay into a massive sand dune.

The Lore: Tomorrow-Morrow Land[]

The eldest of the Lost Tribe are the ones who were the impetus behind their inadvertent lore. It seems clear that they may have "borrowed" from stories they were read or told as children. This is evident in the repetition of the name "Tomorrow-morrow Land" which sounds very similar to "Never Never Land" from J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan. According to Merriam-Webster:

The phrase never-never land is linked to Peter Pan, although it did not originate with that creation of the Scottish playwright Sir James Matthew Barrie. In Barrie's original 1904 play, Peter befriends the real-world children of the Darling family and spirits them off for a visit to Never Land, where children can fly and never have to become adults. Then, in his 1908 sequel When Wendy Grew Up, Barrie changed the name to Never Never Land, and subsequent versions of the earlier play incorporated that change. People had been using never-never land for a place that was overly idealistic or romantic since at least 1900, but the influence of Peter Pan on the word's popularity and staying power cannot be discounted.[1]

Additionally, the Lost Tribe would appear to be a direct reflection of the "Lost Boys" from Peter Pan, a group of, in this case, female and male children, lost in isolation without adults.

Eventually, the Lost Tribe reaches their imagined "Tomorrow-Morrow Land" onboard "The Flying Jalopy" with Jedediah as their pilot. It is revealed to them that the location is now a dilapidated city smothered in sand and dust. The Sydney Harbour is dried-up and the bridge destroyed. Buildings are destroyed as well, with only their bare bone skeletons in place. The Lost Tribe settles in that place and tells "The Tale" each night with torches in windows to guide lone wanderers to a place they can call "home."

Still in all, every night we does the tell, so that we 'member who we was and where we came from... but most of all we 'members the man that finded us, him that came the salvage. And we lights the city, not just for him, but for all of them that are still out there. 'Cause we knows there come a night, when they sees the distant light, and they'll be comin' home.

Behind the Scenes[]

Dennis W. Nicholson worked on the "BIGature" models of destroyed Sydney, a.k.a. "Tomorrow-Morrow Land," in which The Lost Tribe eventually settles in. Unfortunately, the models were too big to be stored and had to be destroyed.
