I have been finding this whole time travel dilemma of ours very annoying. However, as if a break in storm clouds let in a ray of sunshine, I suddenly find the positives of this little adventure illuminated for me.
Freed from restrictive and troublesome blood bonds. Granted authority over some of those who would have once called me their enemy. Knowledge of ancient events that still effect our present.
These time trips have clearly been arranged to give my companions and (most importantly) myself, inside knowledge on ancient influences instigating our modern problems as well as other advantages of power and special authority.
The questions are, arranged by whom? For what purpose?
And what will it cost?
