My group has just completed The Marcy Case, and I wonder...
Spoiler (click to reveal)
...did we spot a long-story element when it was pointed out to us, right at the end, that a certain item was incongruous in the setting? This could set up a possible over arcing story where we are not alone in our endeavours.
Have at it conspiracy theorists.

I think I know what you are getting at; however, we did think the same on another part:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
In the forest, deep in, there is an attack by two scantly clad zombies seemingly controlled by a third figure. We did debate afterwards if that was going to be a running thread, or if this figure would show up again. However, none of the other "monsters" were really explained either.



Also, keep in mind that my group decided to jump into the Marcy Case BEFORE Asylum, which we still haven't started yet.

Missed that, put I was Fiona and mostly avoided being in dangerous places if I could.

Harking back to Asylum, I don't think I recall anything out of place/time.

Regarding the end of The Marcy Case

Spoiler (click to reveal)
The guy in the helicopter pilot gives you a wink, and in the mission success card, Bob says something along the lines of "I see you met (some name that starts with an R)". I think it's implied he's another time agent. I do suspect that there is a bigger story arc at play that Marcy will be a part of, as well as stuff that was introduced in Asylum.

Both scenarios depicted scientists being busy with creating monsters. Another clue?

Wasn't the thing out of time the DNA test at the end, by the supposed other Time Agent in the helicopter? It could simply have been that agent's mission to make a DNA test possible in 1992, using knowledge from the future? We just finished our final Marcy run tonight, and I'm sure it was even noted on the mission success card that this is what was out of time.

Yes it was, so what's going on behind the scenes? What is Bob not telling us? Dun, dun, dunnnn....

I think that laptop did not exist (at least in that shape) in 1992. And certainly not in a police desk in a remote city. This means at least two things are outdated. Maybe there are more... I shall check.

Is Bob suggesting that some agents are playing with time.

We don't either know why Marcy is so important.

Also, Laura always getting all glitchy on the last moments before the adventure begins, when she's supposed to give us important information seems a little odd too.

It's not glitchy...it's loss of reception.

It's still very odd though. If the information is important, give it before the loss of reception.
