Just realised I've been spamming Twitter and Facebook with my general gushy love for Chaos Reborn and not here.
Problem solved.
If you've not taken a look at this Kickstarter I heartily recommend it :) Seriously turn based multi-player wizard battles written by the guy who write XCom (the original) what's not to like?
Go check it out.

So, I've had a few thoughts about TimeWatch stuff, and one of them was the Time Nazis (because what's a game without a few Nazis) the idea runs that in a few different time lines the Nazis discovered the time travel was possible (all those people trying to kill Hitler) and at least one group managed to equip a Zeppelin with a rudimentary time machine that they now use to travel about trying to "fix" history and bring about the Reich.

Then I got reading some more and found out the Josef Mengele "drowned  while swimming" in Argentina... and then it kinda got a bit dark in my head.

But it explains WHO was in charge of the plan to clone Winston Churchill and replace him in India in the 1890's.

Anyway, random thoughts, enjoy.

My amazingly detailed adventure notes for the game I ran at Conpuslion last month. (I spent a LOT more time making the characters).

Please note the players ignored most of said plot.

Events as they happened.
-----------------------

1886 Wells is studying at the Normal School of Science in Kensington, finds the Raptor time machine in a series of aritfacts dug up in Brazil.

Raptor time machine is a green jade vest with a head band.

Travels to 1914 first, and witnesses the start of the Martian Invasion at the same time as the war in Europe is getting underway.

Then travels on to 1945 to see London now ruled by the Martians, men kept in prison camps and farmed for food.

Travels on to 2045 to find the Martians now at war with each other, men have devolved to a troglodyte state (Morlocks) and the Martians are using the Red Weed to destroy each others bases.

Trapped by Martians he panics and wishes he was home, the machine sends him back 65 Million years to just before the K-Pg event, carrying a sample of red weed.

The raptors know the martians have launched a rock at earth that will destroy their civilisation.
They also belive their similar attempts have destroyed the martians. Hearing of their later invasion of earth they realise they failed,
that mars had reseeded itself and the martians had put themselves to sleep. They launch the red weed at mars and Wells returns to 1887.

Mars is now red and the martians never awake.

Knights of temporal purity found about Wells use of a time machine and first travel to 1887 to question him. Then they made a copy of the device and travelled back to 1886 and swapped it out at the dig site.

At this point their time machines stopped working at their home base was destroyed by the rewrite of history. There is one of them guarding Wells and the rest at the dig site.

----

Data points to something serious happening in 1915 and quickly sweeping through time from there. There are no reports from any researchers in the 1920s and the auto sensing devices go crazy in the 1915 and on.
It looks like WWI went extremely differently.

Depending on where they choose to arrive the following clues are available.

- Martians!!! The British Isles is their first target being easily defensible with a high population density and easy access to the continent,
if the PC's start in the UK the Martian invasion will be a big thing. If they choose to go to France or Germany then they have to deal with the whole war zone thing. The B.E.F. is being rerouted back to
England to fight the invaders and the French defence is suffering in response.
- Mars is green (Notice to spot something strange in the night sky Science! to work out what)
- Wells link easy enough to spot, Research into Wells is hard as he never did well as a writer. None of his Sci-fi was published.
- His first story The Chronic Argonauts SHOULD have been published in 1888.

In 1888 Wells have left the normal school and is now a teacher, he memory seems clouded. Various social tests can be used to find out he was visited on March 1st 1887 by some strange guests.
He doesn't remember much about the visit. There are also gaps in his memory in 1886.

If the players arrive before March 1st they can catch the Knights when they arrive to question Wells. The knights will flee but will continue to attempt to return and question Wells, unless the PC's stop them
they will eventually find out about the time machine.

If the PC's can talk to Wells before the knights get to him his memories are clouded still as the knights swapped out the time machine and he never used it.
Paradox Prevention can give some clues to this point to Feb 1886.

I really need to post here more. Bloody knackered today, 24 hour hackathon Thursday / Friday followed by 7 hours board gaming on Saturday has taken it's toll.
I hope everyone is having a good day.
