I think it's Normal Timeline.

The Fantasy scenario is AT, which could be Alternate Timeline.

Sounds convincing, in german it is NZ which could be Normale Zeitlinie.

And AZ: Alternative Zeitlinie
I've wondered the question myself but somehow forgot about it.

You may well be right, but some of the content of the scenario is decidedly not Normal, so it's not the best descriptor. Some of my group were expecting a more historically accurate treatment of the time period.

I thought it was a non-religious way of saying B.C. (before Christ) and A.D. (Anno Domini). Don't know what the letters would stand for, though.

A potential explanation without spoilers :

Let's say the Normal (or Neutral ?) Timeline is the one which leads to the invention of the time machine (ours?).

Because time travel exists (and is probably not the agency's monopoly), some people or events have altered the timeline to such an extent that an intervention becomes mandatory.

The whole point of the game is that time terrorists of the future go back in time to try to change things. So for example there could be a scenario set in 1835 London with sorcerers from the future conjuring beasts in London Tower. Your job as an agent is to go back and stop them. You would go back to 1835 London "normal time", find the abnormality, and stop it from realizing.

I thought Asylum felt very historically accurate. Felt like the 1920s. Nice to play croquet and see the hats people were wearing etc. Then there were the time terrorists who went back in time to that era creating flying lions who we had to stop.
