Title: Twelve Monkeys

Created by: vetinari7878

Tragedy Set: Basic Tragedy


Description: A time traveller has travelled back in time to avoid a disastrous pandemic which originated in the city. He is immediately believed crazy and hospitalized. Unknown to him, however, the real trigger of the pandemic was not the Hospital Incident, but the event on a previous day when the Pop Idol was infected, becoming patient zero and transmitting the disease in the following weeks during her world tour. At the same time, other people mill around inciting strange events and muddling the investigation on what really happened.

Main Plot: Change of Future

Subplot 1: An Unsettling Rumor

Subplot 2: Unknown Factor X

Number of Loops: 4

Days per Loop: 7

Hints for Mastermind:
This script should be very tricky for the Mastermind, as it relies completely on subterfuge. The key is to make the Protagonist waste cards on preventing the Hospital Incident, while in reality you don't want to trigger it at all (since it will reveal the Patient as the Time Traveller when he will not die). Spread Paranoia liberally in order to trigger Incidents and use every opportunity to lay down Intrigue and hit every loss condition possible at the end of the loop (basically try having 2 Intrigue on all locations and all girls). Thanks to the Informer, the subplots will be known at some time, so the idea is to keep the Main Plot hidden as much as possible. Also, the Office Worker having Mandatory Goodwill Refusal will whittle down the possible Plots, so try to keep them thinking that he could be the Factor instead.

Victory Conditions for Mastermind:
1. Trigger "Butterfly Effect" (Change of Future victory condition)

I like the idea of misleading the protagonists! Cool script!
