I have an idea. If I had writer status I'd put it in the collaborative forum and try to get it set up and off and going myself... but since I don't
- I thought I'd put the idea here for consideration.
What if in the near future, a group of privately funded scientists discover a way to travel through time. Suppose, certain people wanted to take
advantage of this and travel through time with advanced knowledge and technology.
What if this explains out of place artifacts? What if this explains the miraculous feats, architecture, out of place knowledge - some 'gods' and
pharaohs and leaders - had and exhibited - in a stage of human development that far exceeded the knowledge base. Suppose, that history is being
rewritten by the future. By a group of powerful men who covet power.
What if you were recruited with others - to go into the past 10,000 (?) or so years - to where this group of powerful people are wielding and shaping
the future - and stop them. You are sent with advanced technology and a base of operations to hunt the men of the future posing as gods - an island
everyone ironically calls - Atlantis.
You can create your operative character, the renegade time traveler villain and connect it with a legend, out of place artifact, or even out of place
knowledge. I'm at a point where I'm flip flopping through different oddities in history in my head. King Arthur and Merlin, Robin hood, the ark of the
covenant - but it could be something totally abstract to the mysterious batteries found that dated back thousands of years. Also a watch that was
found out of place in time.
Anyhow, that's my idea and I thought I'd share.
ETA - Heh, I just saw the photomanipulation contest. Me thinks I'll throw my hat in!
