“Time travelers know of a place where all time related and historical questions can be answered, a library preserved in a bubble outside of time itself that contains all the knowledge we have accumulated throughout our travels. But it’s a 50-50 shot. Half the people that try to make it there get sent to a ruined version of the library near the end of time itself, a post-apocalyptic hellscape just before the death of the universe. Thus we usually send only the oldest time travelers to take the risk, as their knowledge is greatest to add to library and lifelines shortest if they miss.”
—Time Traveler

Modern and Ruined Library includes two interior maps. One map is of a modern library with computers and laptops and the other map is of a ruined modern library.

Modern and Ruined Library is intended for use in modern or post-apocalyptic games.

Adventure hook for use with this map

Library at the End of Time:  The player characters are playing time travelers or some sort of dimension jumping characters (such as those sent out from our Gateway Sector 02 map). Time traveling characters know the risks of travel here but may have a question about maintaining the timelines that sustain humanity the longest that must be answered no matter the cost. Gateway jumping characters may end up at the Library at the End of Time by accident. The library books and computers display information in a variety of languages from Old Norse, Greek, and Latin to more modern English, Russian, Chinese, etc. to newer futuristic languages evolved and combined from modern languages. Instead of an exit, the door to the south shows a mirrored ruined library. Stepping outside the library causes them to leave the time bubble and step out into a post-apocalyptic hellscape. Surviving the hellscape and trying to find a way back can be an adventure in itself.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
