The time travel system lays out a temporal physics system that explains time as a flowing tube. This tube spirals along in twists and the twists are themselves wrapped into coils. This time stream can be imagined by thinking of a telephone cord that is wrapped around a cylinder. Time travel is possible by leaving your current point in the tube and travelling either to a neighboring twist or any coil. Coils allowed time travellers to travel into the past by great leaps, to predefined years. The farther in the past the coil, the greater the gap. The first few coils closest to present day were separated by thousands of years, coils farther in the past were separated by millions and then billions of years. Roughly detailed in a few paragraphs, the coils go as far back as the beginning of the universe.
Twists vary in size depending on which coil was considered its home coil. In the present day coil (detailed based on 1988, when the game was written) twists were 125 years apart. So from 1988, one could travel into the past year of 1863 or to the future year of 2113. From the new twist the time traveller could potentially travel another 125 years, either to return home or farther away from their home time, to further away to... Read More
