An umpire, sets up the standard board and recruits PBF players here or on RPG Geek. Players can join in as we play as this game as the time never stops.


It will be a PBF format where players are people on the board (one of the cards) as they move around on the board trying to complete their mission and then exit the board (your timeline is showing in the board).

Standard board setup and the umpire scatters the artifacts around the map (unknown to the players) and can't be moved unless that is your mission but revealed when searched for by any player. The other cards such as actions and time warps are also placed hidden on the map.

Player Moves:
Instead of having cards, the players can do one of these actions per post (max 1 per 24hr day):
Restore History
Avert Disaster
Reverse Fate
Halt Attack
Halt Assassination
Place a Patch (please specify)
Grab/Reveal Artifact
Move to new location
Return to Your Timeline (all artifacts are randomly returned face down to the timeline, requires timeline to match your ID)

Turn Resolution:
Anyone eligible to return to their timeline does so
Player actions are resolved from oldest year to newest year.
If the space you are on is paradoxed, you are lost to the timeline and need to draw a new ID.
If players are at the same location and their actions conflict a tie breaker sequence is used.
Player was at that location the previous turn(s)
Players moved there from an earlier year than the other player
Player with the least amount of artifacts
Flip coin

Map is updated and posted for the next turn.
