I mentioned on my Kickstarter page that our intention is to demo Reclamation at the 2012 Origins Game Fair. I have learned that the THEME for this year’s convention is….Time Travel?! They don’t require all of the RPG sessions to fit into that theme, but at the same time, it never hurts to be a “team player” so to speak.

There are multiple Magi rites that involve time travel and distortion. There are also Host evolutions that slow time, bend reality, etc. Not to mention, a clever storyteller can weave just about any thematic thread into an RPG adventure.
So… does anyone have any ideas on time travel elements that I could implement for Origins? Pre-generated characters? Plot lines? I would love to hear your feedback!!
