One of your parent’s suffered from a mysterious ailment where they would uncontrollably become detached from time. They ultimately succumbed to the dangers of time travel, and died tragically, but not before having a child, you. Now scientific progress has demystified the rare disease known as Solutus Tempus, and a cure is available. Through research, it is also now possible for those suffering from the illness to take small items with them on jumps.

And so you hatched a plan to give your parents an impossible gift, a life lived together in the same direction. You’ve infected yourself with Solutus Tempus, and have 4 doses of the cure. You’ll fall through time hoping to land in the same moment as your time afflicted parent, cure them, and return safely to your present to cure yourself.

This is your story.

The Time Traveler’s Child is a playbook for The Time Traveler’s Life by William Lentz that adds a third player to the game. This player will take the role of the child of the Time Traveler and their Significant Other. To play you will need 3 players, a copy of The Time Traveler’s Life (https://gamenomicon.itch.io/the-time-travelers-life), a d20, and three d6s (one for each player).
