Estrella Drive

Announcing a New Expansion for T.I.M.E Stories

4 August 2017 | TIME Stories

 

Come in, agents. We’re glad you were able to attend. We’re still running the necessary diagnostics and analyzing the nature of the temporal anomaly, but we believe we now have enough information to give a preliminary briefing of what we project to be your next mission. We’ve codenamed it Estrella Drive.

By now, you’ve doubtless gone on enough missions that you have some idea of what you’re getting into. You’re familiar with transfer procedures, the receptacles that you inhabit, and the caissons that you’ll use to travel to a new era within the Time Line. And with this mission in particular, you won’t be going quite as far into the past as you have in other missions—it’s not dynastic Egypt or the Middle Ages for you this time. Instead, you’ll be traveling to a place with a… unique position in history: Hollywood, California, in the year 1982.


Click the first four cards to begin your briefing for the Estrella Drive mission!

Our initial scans suggest a continuum anomaly, possibly manifesting as a temporal loop. Your mission is not to close the anomaly at this time. Rather, your main objectives are to study, observe, and report back to us at the T.I.M.E Agency. If necessary, let the potential temporal loop unfold. The more information you can give us, the better equipped we’ll be for a follow-up mission.

The location of the anomaly appears to be a luxurious villa in the Californian hills. Science in the 20th century was incapable of correctly identifying time alterations, so the mansion is believed to be haunted by many natives of this era. You may see various signs of the chrono-quantum disturbance, such as apparitions, self-motivating objects, or sudden drops in temperature. Take careful note of these fissures in the time stream, but remember their true source lies in the damage being done to the Time Line, not in the supernatural. Your calm, objective awareness is crucial to our success in this mission.

     

Above, we have displayed upon your screens the dossiers of two of the receptacles you may inhabit during this mission. Harvey Spector is a ghost hunter who should help you when you’re searching out the time fissures and other aberrations plaguing this house. Maggy Rossiter, on the other hand, could be the perfect receptacle if you’re planning on searching through the belongings of the house’s residents. Your choice of receptacle could give you a significant advantage here, and you’ll find six different receptacles to choose from in the Estrella Drive mission.

Finally, we should note that our early analysis suggests that this mission will bring you into contact with themes that may upset the squeamish or the young. Violence, drugs, and other vices are all common in the time and place we are sending you to, and we highly recommend that younger agents do not embark on this mission.

That’s all the information we have for you at this time, agents! But keep your eyes out—we’ll be sure to share more data and details as your mission launch grows nearer.

Estrella Drive is the sixth expansion for T.I.M.E Stories, sending you and your fellow players to a purportedly haunted mansion in 1982 Hollywood. Estrella Drive is only recommended for mature audiences—certain themes within this adventure may be objectionable to younger players. Look for Estrella Drive at your local retailer in the fourth quarter of 2017!
