Rating: PG-13 Genre: Time Travel / Fantasy/ Action / Intrigue Atmosphere/Mood: Adventure / Drama Basic Plot: The compass of Aetas is an old artifact that allows humans to travel through time. Today, that compass is scattered into eight different pieces. Each piece must be reunited with it's sister artifact in the past. Time travelers are born for this duty, and to protect the pieces of Aetas from falling into the wrong hands. Cell phones, appointments, salaries, facebook, work, study, children, life. Day by day, we're spinning out of control or stuck in routine. Our lives are run along with money, people, emotional fluctuations and lost dreams. We struggle for a better life. We plan, we hope, we attempt to achieve, but some of us have this feeling that we will always be doomed to fail. Fate hands us an empty glass; the imagination to believe it to be full is long gone. It's when we know our weakness that we can grow stronger. The Compass of Aetas. The answer to man's greatness weakness, Time. Spoken of in Old English legends, Aetas was the compass of time, originally created with magic.It allowed humans to travel through time without paying a cost. Because of it's great power, it was cursed by ancients, split into eight pieces, each with a different fragment of magical power. Those eight pieces were then scattered into the modern timeline. When a piece of Aetas lands into human hands, a person is no longer human. They are removed from the timeline, as if they never existed. However, the possession of a piece of Aetas delivers a final curse. Upon human contact, each fragment is split into two, one in the modern timeline and the other, a sister artifact sent to the past. Without the sister artifact, the fragment's power cannot reach it's full potential. Once all eight sister artifacts have been reunited with their pieces, the eight time travelers can make unanimous decision to destroy the compass of Aetas or to use it for good. You have found a fragment of Aetas. Tonight you will be reborn as a time traveler. The Eight Pieces of Aetas: (1) Salubris, the Locket (Healing Magic) (2) Celeras, the Ring (Speed Magic) (3) Noctis, the Earrings (Stealth Magic) (4) Efflux, the Pocket Watch (Time-Freeze Magic) (5) Mephitas, the Guardian Blade (Poison Magic) (6) Reveras, the Ancient Bracelet (Telepathic Magic) (7) Berceus, the Bell-Anklet (Sleep-Inducing Magic) (8) Mariones, the Sash (Mind-control/Puppetry Magic) Not all time travelers are in search of good. There are those who will do anything to gain the power of the Aetas compass for themselves, hunt the pieces, their sister artifacts and attempt to combine them. These mysterious individuals are a part of an ancient cult known as the Caligenus. They are people from a lineage of old age wizards, cursed for their greed and dark ways. The Caligenians, after touching a piece of Aetas, can absorb it's powers for a period of time. (Assume that the younger Caligenians are a part of normal society) They are nearly human, with the ability to travel through time granted through the Caligenus curse. Each Caligenian time traveler has paid a price for that ability.
