Once upon a time in the future, mankind has finally mastered the art of time travel. A new era of peace, love, harmony and glory to mankind has... unfortunately not arrived, as the world is about to end.

This larp consists of a meeting in the Royal Society of TimeTravelling Ladies And Gentlemen (RSOTTLAG) that will discern which members are behind the paradox that has doomed the universe. The twist is that, of course, ALL of the time-travellers are responsible for some paradox or another. But which one is relevant?
