Very few beings have the power to exist outside of time But those that do also have the power to destroy it...
When another being breaks the solitary confines of time, the first to know is the lord of all time, Father Time. When one being, a human named Solitaire, escaped time, Father Time as usual went to investigate. Soon he found that after Solitaire had escaped time into the White Parlour (his domain) she had created her own reality, where she could escape from Time, and Death itself. There she created Cartes, her very own minions with which she used to infiltrate and destroy the Time Line of a planet called Earth.
Since Father Time cannot set foot in the time line for fear it would permanently alter Earths' future, he gifts certain humans the ability to travel through to the different times and stop Solitaire's mysterious undoings. His particular interest lies with one of the girls he has chosen for this task, a girl from the current present, Rose Reveries.
At first, the task at hand seems simple to the humans, eradicate the Cartes, and stop Solitaire from destroying the time stream. But they soon find that this situation isn't as black-and-white as it seems...
(WIP) Age: N/A Sex: Male Time: N/A Bio: Father Time has always been, and will always be. His job is to simply observe the happenings in the timeline, but cannot himself interfere directly. It is also his job to make sure the beings that exist outside of time adhere to the rules, and do not interfere with the timeline in any way.
Age: 16 Gender: Female Time: 2011 Bio: Rose is the main character of the story. She is one of the 4 humans Father Time pulled out of time before their deaths, and took on the role to help prevent Solitaire from destroying time. She didn't really want to do the task at hand, but feeling nervous around the others, she dutifully accepted. She's lived a completely normal, boring life, with which she was never happy. She has an obsession with cats, and is terrified of most insects except spiders. In general, Rose is a shy person and it takes time for her to warm up to most people.
Age: 17 Gender: Female Time: 1809 Bio: Lucy is the daughter of a nobleman from the 1800's. Her whole life, she's pretended to be a little eccentric to avoid becoming the head of the Hargreaves family. It sort of grew on her, and now even though she's not really crazy, she still acts the same way. She didn't hesitate to go with Father Time when he asked her and the three others to go with him, she "wanted to see these so called fantastical wonders" that Father Time was talking about. She can be a very serious person when the occasion calls for it, but for the most part she is the self-proclaimed "comic relief"Ã¯Â¿Â½.
Age: 17 Gender: Male Time: 1902 Bio: Eric has been a homeless orphan his whole life, but he never begged or complained about it. Everybody loved him in 20th century London, until he was killed in a random shooting. He went with Father Time because he wanted to help people, even after his death. He's a very kind person, but sometimes on the ignorant side. He doesn't really want to hurt anything, so he often has trouble finding the drive to fight in battles.
Lancelot du Lac
(WIP) Age: 17 Gender: Male Time: 923 Bio: Lancelot is a very quiet person, and because of this very little is known about him. Before he was pulled out of time, he was a soldier fighting some sort of war in the medieval ages.
no portrait Age: ??? Sex: Female Time: 2010 Bio: Solitaire was once human, but became corrupted when she forced herself outside the Time Barrier. She now plots to alter the flow of history on her home planet Earth for unknown reasons. She is also the leader of the Cartes, a race of her creation that can travel through time and do her bidding, for she herself can no longer step in the time stream.
This story takes place on an Earth much like our own, but still quite different. This world is a little bit more advanced than our own at certain points in time, giving birth to the Steampunk era, and as you play through the game you'll find that there may be some things that exist there but not here, and vise versa. There are ten different times/places you can travel to, but I don't have a description for them all yet.

Hmm - sounds a little like Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego's and Chrono Trigger's baby! Seems intriguing!
Does Father Time cobble together the party from the get-go, or does Lucy go back to each PC's moment of being snapped out of the time stream and meets them? This definitely fits the "Ragtag band of adventurers" theme, so take some time to figure out how they'll interact with each other.. especially since each of them seems to have died! When they complete their mission, and Father Time poinks them back into the time stream, they'll.. die. So, that's a bit of a bummer, eh?
thanks guys! I'm glad you think it's interesting^^ I was really nervous to post the thread because I thought people might think it was just weird or something D:
@Biflspud:: your thinking ahead really far but I wont give away the ending I have in mind~ thanks for the advice though c: and they kinda just get ripped out of where they were lol, at first, some of them didn't even know that they were going to die before it happened edit:: and actually, I've never played either of those games XD

I can't speak for Carmen Sandiego; it's mostly a thinly veiled teaching tool. Chrono Trigger was buckets of awesome though.. don't want to spoil it, but it ALSO has time travel and characters snapped up from distant times to save the planet. Worth a looksie!
D: I feel like I haven't posted any progress here in a while, so... progress is slow, but steady. lately I've mostly been working for the mapping on the first area, Prehistoria. There's still a lot of script debugging and graphics/sprites that I need to take care of, so I keep running into problems and having to work around them lol. I was thinking about maybe opening a recruitment thread, but I think I might work my team to death with all of the stuff I want/need @.@ and then there's the fact that not many people know about my project yet, so I'm not sure if people would be interested... maybe I'll just think on it more for a little while...
no new screens today~ I've made a lot of new maps, but I think it might be a little monotonous if I posted several screens of the same area~ so for now, enjoy this little gif I made out of boredom~
