TimeWatch cover 300



2017 Indie RPG Game of the Year Nominee, and Winner of the Best Support and Best Production Awards

History isn’t written by the victors. It’s written by the people with the time machines.

“Well, that doesn’t look right.” All around you are the abandoned ruins of medieval Paris, with a hundred thousand rotted skulls piled up in a mountain. Your partner draws her pistol and checks the historical record on her holographic tether. “Looks like the Khan didn’t die of alcoholism, and his hordes didn’t stop at Vienna,” she says.

“Then we’d better find whoever decided to save his life.” You punch in the coordinates for Karakorum in the year 1241, and fire up the time machine. As you disappear from the 13th century, you silently hope that it isn’t the roaches again…

In the TimeWatch roleplaying game, your band of TimeWatch agents defend the timestream from radioactive cockroaches, psychic velociraptors, and human meddlers. Go back in time to help yourself in a fight, thwart your foes by targeting their ancestors, or gain a vital clue by checking a scroll out from the Library of Alexandria. But watch out for paradoxes that may erase you from existence… or worse.

If you’ve ever dreamed of going on world-changing adventures from the age of the dinosaurs to the end of the universe, the TimeWatch roleplaying game is for you! The game includes:

  • Rules for thrilling time chases, combat in every era, and the dangers of paradox, powered by the GUMSHOE investigative system.
  • Extensive GM advice for creating and running games where PCs can travel anywhere, anywhen.
  • Fourteen settings where you can face Mythos horrors, slide between alternate universes, steal the treasures of the ages, and more.
  • More than a dozen ready-to-play time seeds, iconic pregenerated characters, and three full adventures.
  • Plenty of options, so you can easily customize the game to match your group’s preferred style of play.

You’ve got a time machine, high-powered weaponry and a whole lot of history to save.

    The humanoid dinosaur is saying, “Mom! Stop embarassing me in front of my friends!”

    I want a time machine so I can hop forward to the kickstarter starting, then again so I can get my rewards!

    • Terry says:

      One of the KS stretch goals will be to build a time machine to deliver your book before you even pledged for it. I don’t have my copy yet, so I guess they won’t hit that stretch goal.

      Or maybe the chronal instability of so many paradoxes is causing Kickstarter backers to fade out of exi-

  3. […] Is it the Spear that pierced Christ’s side, or the Spear of Odin? Does it grant true kingship or invincibility? Who has borne it through the millennia, and who seeks its true whereabouts now? This issue pierces the legend to reach the truth — and then makes the legend invincible. Plus, a look at the Spear for Night’s Black Agents, The Esoterrorists, Trail of Cthulhu, and TimeWatch. […]

    I assume this product is now, like so many others, defunct?
    There has been no new releases or other activity for well over a year.

    • Mika Talley says:

      We haven’t ruled out doing more TimeWatch products in the future. At the moment, the author, Kevin Kulp, is really excited about Swords of the Serpentine and wants to focus on that.

      • A Passing Stranger says:

        As I thought, a defunct project. A pity we it had some potential despite the silliness of some elements.
