Cat's Eyes

By:

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 wall...it 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.

       By: Michael Jotne Slayer

The nations of the Kolm surpasses all other barbarians in their wilderness of life. Thoug they do just bear the likeness of men, of a very ugly pattern, they are so little advanced in civilization that they make no use of fire, nor any kind of relish, in the preparation of their food, but feed upon the roots which they find in the fields, and the half-raw flesh of any sort of animal. I say half-raw, because they give it a kind of cooking by placing it between their own thighs and the back of their horses. They fight in no regular order of battle but by being extremely swift and sudden in their movements, they disperse, and hen rapidly come toghether in loose array. They spread havoc over the vast plains and flying over the ramparts, they pillage the camp of their enemy almost before he has become aware of their approach. They are the most terrible warriors for when in close combat with swords and flails they fight without regard to their own safety, and while their enemy is intent upon parrying the thrust of the swords, they will entangle him with their chains so that he loses all power of walking or riding.

Excerpt from "The peoples of the world" By Taklamarian court-scholar Guliman Amon.
