They say time is linear. That’s what I used to believe as well, But they are wrong. Time is an ever shifting loop, sometimes twisting back on its self, sometimes leaping forward by thousands of years, but one thing is certain. What is, has already happened, and is destined to happen again. Confused? So was I. Let’s see if this will help. Once there was a young man who was about to jump off a bridge and end his life. Along came an old man who talked him down. Told him all the wonderful things he could do with his life, reminded him of all the people who cared for him. The young man moved on. He became a famous doctor who saved thousands of lives and, in time, forgot all about the old man who saved his. Eventually the young man became very old himself. One day while sitting in a park a strange man came to him. “You must come with me.” He said, “There is someone I need your help to save.” The stranger lead him to a strange vehicle and then drove him to a bridge. There on the bridge was a young man preparing to jump into the roaring waters below. “If you don’t save him,” the stranger pleaded, “thousands who need his help will die.” So the old man got out of the vehicle, went over, and talked the young man out of jumping. Do you get it yet? The old man and the young man are one and the same. The old man saved his younger self. There was no choice in the matter, he was going to do it, because he already had done it. Who was the stranger? They call him the Servant of Time. He exists solely to make sure that what has happened will happen. And now you ask me why you should care. I didn't either, until I understood. You see the Servant of Time has appeared again. It seems he needs us. He says that something has gone wrong, from our point of view anyway. Some sort of “time terrorist is running a muck. We are supposed to stop them. He says the world needs us. We’re supposed to save it. No, there’s not really any choices here. We have to save it. We will save it, because technically we already have.

Any other characters need to belong to the era in which the RP is currently set. You may play multiple characters, but you must be able to play them well, by this I mean give your secondary characters just as much attention and thought as the primaries. If you need to leave the RP please let me know so a way can be found to write out your character without spoiling the game for everyone else. Post rules Please Post at least one paragraph. Please spell and grammar check all posts – typos do happen, but they should not be a constant thing. DO NOT use different colored text for dialogue – I find this very difficult to read. You WILL be asked to change this if I find you doing it. Other Remember that not everyone can be on everyday, this means no rapid-fire postings which leave the others behind. Try to give everyone a chance to keep up. Note: This RP was inspired by Ryex's signature, and Diana'a Plot Challenge.
