“Time travel is real, and all of history is vulnerable to attack. Which is why we must travel through time to stop the spread of these so-called "time aberrations" and to erase their damage to history. After going back in time to reverse a future created by a mad man, we interacted with our past selves which resulted in a time storm. Now we have to ride it out until it passes so we can set things right.

We are a team of outcasts and misfits, so please don't call us heroes. We're Legends.”

- Legends of Tomorrow



Los Angeles 2017.

After their adventures in World War I era France the Legends were caught in a time storm. Their ship, the Waverider suffered heavy damage and was forced to ground in 2017 Los Angeles. They quickly discovered that something had gone very wrong.

Dinosaurs from the Cretaceous, the Roman Colosseum and the Great Wall of China all existing in the same place. Cavemen now living down the street from people who should have been from the 31st century. Horse and buggies driving next to Mercedes and everyone acting like there was nothing wrong.

Time was broken. Time is broken; there's nothing that can be done about it. With another time jump being impossible the Legends were forced to spread out to scout the area. One by one each of them was swept up into the time stream, leaving only Gideon.

While relocating the Waverider to safety, Gideon began to pick up signs of aberrations ...

Time Trapped is a multifandom, event and player driven, slice of life Roleplaying game set in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. The Test Drive and Reserves are open.

Arctic Dreams

About a year ago, I was beginning to sketch out the plot for the sixth Weird of Hali novel, which involves a voyage to Greenland on a tall ship. I've never been to Greenland, or anywhere in the Arctic, so I did what writers generally do and went looking for books on the subject by people who know what they're talking about. That and a large used book store was how I ended up with a battered paperback copy of Barry Lopez' Arctic Dreams: Imagination and Desire in a Northern Landscape.



It turned out to be much more than a bit of convenient research for an epic fantasy with tentacles. It's brilliantly written; here's a bit from the fifth chapter --

"Those days on Ilingnorak Ridge, where I saw tundra grizzly tearing up the earth looking for ground squirrels, and watched wolves hunting, and horned lark sitting so resolutely on her nest, and caribou crossing the river and shaking off the spray like diamonds before the evening sun, I was satisfied only to watch. This was the great drift and pause of life. These were the arrangements that made the land ring with integrity. Somewhere downriver, I remembered, a scientist named Edward Sable had paused on a trek in 1946 to stare at a Folsom spear point, a perfectly fluted object of black chert resting on a sandstone ledge. People, moving over the land."

-- but it's also a meditation on humanity's relationship to nature, one that avoids the usual platitudes and presuppositions and goes very deep. I've sat up late I don't know how many nights with a glass of halfway decent bourbon and my copy of Arctic Dreams, partly reveling in the use of language, partly staring at space and following out Lopez' ideas to an assortment of unexpected places. When this copy goes to pieces, I'll be looking for a hardback for the shelf of nature books I keep ready to hand.
