Time & TV Tropes

Woke up this morning to find that I had been linked to in the Time Travel definition of TVTropes.org(Warning: This site itself may in fact be a persistent/benign/obvious temporal anomaly. Those visiting inevitably hear the siren call of each and every link, resulting in the viewer experiencing missing time. Click at your own risk.) And the elegance and accuracy of their description of Time & Temp struck me:

Time and Temp is another Tabletop RPG entirely about Time Travel, using office temps (temps, get it?) as field agents because (as unimportant shlubs) their lives are least likely to suffer a reality-ending paradox due to their own past actions. What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Kicking around on the site a little bit, I found quite a few other tropes that applied to most of the Time & Temp games I’ve been in.

There’s almost as much grist for the Time & Temp mill on this site as there is on Wikipedia. Definitely worth the afternoon of work you’ll lose perusing it.

    You’re welcome. And thank you! I’m planning to run this for the first time at Gamex in a few weeks, and very much looking forward to it.

    Why thank you, for both the definition and running the game at Gamex.
