TIME POLICE
Protecting the past from the villains of today!

A 19-page d20 mini-game found only in the pages of EN World Gamer #3

Time Police is a d20 mini-game designed to let you and your gaming group try something different for a quick session, with the option of developing into a more long-term campaign. Time travel is one of the most classic elements of science fiction, and its mind-bending ability to mix anachronistic elements into the same story has the potential for memorable adventures. Crime in time is just the basis for this mini-game, and we encourage you to use this article to play all manner of time travel games.

In the year 2163, the government of the United States of North America began work on Project Mercury, a top-secret program intent on sending a human being back in time. After decades of struggle, in the year 2196, scientists were able to open a window into the past and a mechanical probe managed to enter and return safely. Further tests were scheduled involving animals, and eventually human beings, but that schedule soon got rewritten.

On May 8, 2196, the President of the United States of North America was assassinated by agents of a hostile government. Priorities were instantly changed, and despite the lack of testing, a Special Forces unit was deployed through the time portal to stop the assassination. The Special Forces managed to complete their mission, and the president's life was saved, but when they returned to their own time, they made a disturbing discovery: the president was still dead.

Teams were sent again into the past, where it was confirmed that the assassination attempt had failed. There was only one explanation: the past could not be changed, even by changing the past. It was theorized that the ?time machines? were actually creating new alternate dimensions, rather than transporting people back in time. Regardless of the explanation, Project Mercury was scrapped.And so the program might have been forgotten, had one of the top-level researchers not managed to convince the government to declassify the technology, and allow it to be developed by the private sector. Thus was born Time Tourism.

On January 1, 2201, Chronotech Tours opened its doors to the public, offering excursions to nearly a dozen different times include the Golden Age of America (the early twenty-first century), The Old West, The Medieval Period, The Roman Empire,and of course, the Age of Dinosaurs. It was not long before rival companies developed their own time travel programs, and time tourism became all the rage.But with time tourism came time crime. Powerful criminal organizations managed to obtain many of the corporate created time keys, and even managed to discover a few of their own. These timelines have been used for a host of illicit purposes, including hiding wanted criminals, easily obtaining illegal materials, or using modern technology to dominate a less advanced time period. With this rise of temporal crime came the need for a special law enforcement agency, the Department of Temporal Related Investigation, or as most people call it: Time Police.

Time Police contains the Chronologist, Period Actor, Time Cop, Time Detective classes, as well as new feats, technology, organizations and rules relating to time travel. This mini-game is 19 pages long.

Note that previous issues of EN World Gamer also contained d20 mini-games. EN Publishing has continued the mini-game line in the form of regular PDF mini-games. The first of these separate mini-games was Gun-Fu: Balletic Ballistics, available here from RPGNow. Please keep an eye on EN Publishing's schedule for more d20 mini-games.

Format

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
