Timeship (Classic Reprint)

Description

There are no more barriers! Yesterday you traveled to 600,000,000AD and solved a bizarre murder mystery. Today you watch, amazed, as the merchants of Gomorrah trade in vice and corruption. Tomorrow you will stalk the war-torn streets of Berlin in search of Adolph Hitler. You are a time traveler, and there are no more barriers.

Timeship is an innovative and imaginative roleplaying game that allows players to adventure in strange eras and places as themselves, not as fictional characters who have been created by a few dice rolls. An elegantly simple system starts players at average ability levels, then allows each player to evaluate him or herself by improving some and reducing others. The result is each player creates a gaming character that mirrors both their positive and negative abilities, based on their own judgment.

Timeship also introduces the concept of Player Power. Each player has a certain amount of Personal Power that is reduced through the performance of various activities and damage during the course of the adventure. For instance; a player could take a hand gun into a twentieth century adventure at minimal Power cost, should that same gun be taken on an excursion into the 10th Century, the Power cost would be enormous. Another aspect of Personal Power concerns Group Energy, the element that activates the portals, or gateways, allowing players to move in and out of time itself.
