Early in the game, players received encoded messages from Jake, a physics graduate student at New River University trapped in the past by his own thesis project on time travel. As players rushed to help Jake return to his present, the plot thickened to include a nefarious security guard, a retired FBI agent, Jake's PhD mentor and his daughter, an old friend, and Jake's wife. Things got hairy as Jake skipped back and forth through time, changing the present and disrupting the past, all culminating in an ending that shocked players – Jake's time travel had warped his brain, turning him into a bad bad boy that compelled his wife to kill herself and her devil spawn.

Luckily for the players, the PMs had an alternative "happy" ending that was much more pleasing and there was much rejoicing.
