Cat's Eyes


There are precious few things that allow time-travel.  Cat’s Eyes is one of them.

Cat’s Eyes is a silver necklace set with nine different gems.  It is the property of Felia. It allows her to time travel in a limited fashion.

Felia is a cat turned human who was, due to some peculiar circumstances, given a tenth life and the power to travel to any of her previous lives.  While in the past, Felia has the form of a cat.  She is permitted to change some things, although she can’t alter her own fate.  She can alter the fates of others, though.  Each gem in the necklace is for a different life.  Next to her life, it is the most important thigs she has.

Magical Properties:

The necklace depends on the gems to function.  If any are lost or destroyed, the corresponding life is inaccessible.  As a security measure, the necklace is useless to those without multiple lives.  As it was designed for Felia, the user always takes the form of a cat while in the past.  A user can only go to his or her own lives.  The user cannot affect his or her own fate, and the effects of trying to will not be pleasant.

Interesting. A cat does not necessarily live very long, clumsy cats have truly short lives. So it is not for hundreds of years that she can travel.

Still, some changes in history are possible, though probably no world-shattering ones. Can she travel in the span of this life? Probably not, so no easy go-to-yesterday-place-a-bet scheme will work. Changing the fates may be very hard this way (not to mention being a cat is a limit, too). Any change has to be deeply thinked about, before attempting.

Even simple do-good activities (or do-Evil if you want) are getting harder as the time goes by, and Felia grows older. If you can go only six months or more into the past...

Well, as she was human in her past lives, I'm not sure exactly how far she could go back, and whether or not she had nine human lifespans, or nine cat lifespans. I'd say that twenty years per life would be the upper limit, because a cat can live that long, and Felia died fairly young in each incarnation. But her this is her tenth life, and that's all she gets. She can't change anything that has happened in her current life, and she can't change her own actions in previous lives.

we were talking about were to break a submission, and this is one that I think should be folded into the main submission, but even then this item would need a lot of development by any gamer to drop into a world.

On another note...TIME TRAVELING CAT PEOPLE WITH QUANTUM LEAP OR BEING ERICA TYPE RESTRICTIONS ON THEIR ABILITY TO ALTER TIME....How do you unpack that concept in the game. The players start interacting with a Cat in fancy necklace, it dies, they interact with another cat in the same necklace. The cat leads them around to different points of interest....I guess if your player time travel they might catch on.

In short without breaking the 4th would be very hard to get your characters engaged with this concept

Not my cup of tea, but I enjoy reading the oldies.

I think it would be very hard to change the past without changing one's own fate.

An interesting concept, but damn hard to use.

Ringworld-based game , anyone

       By: Kawaresksenjajok

hey im new to this site but was here years ago w/ another name. anyways dont remember so im newbie by default.
Firstly, I am a sci-fi reader and I hope to meet success with my writing.
My favorite series of books are Larry Nivens RINGWORLD tetralogy (Ringworld, RingWorld Engineers, The RingWorld Throne, and RingWorlds Children)
For those that havnt read the ring world is the greatest artificial structere ever discovered.
A ring, its circumference equal to earths orbit, it is built around a sol-like star. Shadow squares halfway betwwn the ring and the sun provide 15 hours of night in a thirty hour day. 70 days equals one falan (one full rotation of ring world. The inner surface-the one exposed to the sun, is terraformed and is one millionkmwide cntrifugal force provides gravity, and rim walls 1000km high keep the atmosphere in. Population of RNH(ringworld native hominids)
estimated in the trillions.
The origins of who built it and why are too sticky to get into. But the ringworld , millions of years ago, was populated bt A race called Pak Protectors. Protectors are ancestors of all homo sapiens. they populated ringworld with homo erectus, but left no predators in the ecology. hence, hominids evolved into every ecological niche. (Vampires, Carrion Eaters, Giant Herbivores, Small Carnivores, some built great technologies and went interstellar. Oh, and ringworld is 300 million times the surface area of earth. post if youre interested, Ill elabortae on native species and alien vistors
