For the locations tha havent changed you could use something that makes them stand out. Maybe have teh time loop going and then in areas with this said feature, the loop dosent happen, or it repeats one event over and over again.
Example: lets say this war happened in our world, Earth, This magical time rewind was cast upon the world and we're at this point. Then the Pc's go to London on a mission or something, and every thing looks good and nice, then they go past the Palace of Westminster ( this is where BIG BEN is located) and the Palace is in Ruin. Still showing the damage of the war and possably even some of the deaths that happened here. As Such an "eye sore" the palace is ignored and the area around the building has become a "bad" neighberhood, its asumed by the citizens that its just a place where crime happens, and is there for ignored.
Nothing odd here, so your PC's Visit India, and they travel by the
Godavari River area. The River has dead bodies in the river, their is visable bood in the water, and the locals area doing funeral rights for people and are sending them into the waters. When they travel farther down the river they come accross a Dam, and notice something odd. A Flux in time, if you will, the bodies that are floating twords the dam are fazzing in and out of reality. The Dam is both damaged and at the same time repairing its self. The water closest to the dam looks fresh, clean, and crystal clear. On occation people have reported seeing bodies of people in the water, some times looking back in horror.
Its not untill the PC's have finished their mission ( or untill you deam it , because its your game of course) and some time has passed that one of them puts all the stories and events together to get that the magic spell that was cast all those years ago did work, but what the mages didnt account for was the powers of the natural and supernatural. Any Building(s) that boarder RIVERS, and only Rivers, were NOT affected by the time loop. Or in the case of the Dam, both effects are happening, and few people actually realize it.
A little research into this comes up with some "natural laws" that all things in the world must obay. But their are no books on this subject. Except an old Song or maybe a title to a book that hints at an old pholophy and wise words of wisdom along the lines of
" All Things Flow Down Stream, and Those that Go Against The Current Only Prolong The Inevitable, and Make Waves"
I like this idea greatly. I LOVE making my PC's think outside the box in all our RPG's. They seem to think the box holds Safety and Candy, all to often, as they are starting to find out, the box can hold worse things then whats outside of it. Go to Comment
I honestly can’t remember where it all started… It almost seems to me, now looking back, that it’s something that’s always been in my blood. Where I grew up, there were only cornfields; we didn’t have a gaming store ANYWHERE nearby. (I think the closes was 2hrs away). I can remember making up fantasy games at school and having my friends act as the stars in the games while I acted as the bosses/monsters to the areas/levels they were in, while keeping detailed notes and drawings of the creatures and areas handy.
Then while I was in middle school going in to high school I remember sitting down with my friends and doing the same thing, but adding dice and props to the concoction, but still maintaining the “DM vs Player” mind set. I actually never played a RPG until my sophomore year in school. It was Baldur’s Gate for the PC and I didn’t even really know what it was, just played it every once in a while when I visited my family. Then I heard about Neverwinter Nights. I played the hell out of the game over, and over again, loving every minute of it.
It wasent until I got to college that I REALLY got to know what RPG’s really were. I played my 1st game of D&D, with paper character sheet, pencil, and digital Dice roller. It’s strange… thinking about it, the game came so naturally to me, almost like it was a river just flowing from my mind, that it seemed like it had always been a part of me, just unable to properly be expressed.
Now I game every week, played a very health combination of characters in a large assortment of RPG’s and have been able to find a great group of people to share the adventures with. I hope that we’re able to continue sharing the adventures in the future, both with each other, and with others. Go to Comment
Consider the idea of spontaneous genesis of life, as used to be belived. What strange kinds of life might arise from modern substances? What kind of vermin would a landfill produce, or an oil spill on the ocean?
