My grandfather used to tell me stories about a prestigious school called Indiana University. The school was founded in 1820, but was later destroyed by a devastating fire in 1883. To everyone’s dismay, the school was never rebuilt because the needed funds were lost. Attempting to change the ill-fated history of the school, I have created the Time Reversal Machine (TRM) that will take you back to 1883 in an attempt to locate those lost funds. If you are successful, the school will be rebuilt, and time will proceed forward into an alternate reality. Had IU been rebuilt after the fire, it would soon be celebrating its Bicentennial in the year 2020.

Earth agriculture is under siege from an aggressive form of mold that is affecting cereal grains on a global level. Over the course of the past decade, the mold has infected the majority of airable land worldwide. Although numerous attempts have been made to eradicate and delay its growth, to date none have been successful. It is currently predicted to infect all remaining airable land by 2115. Unless something changes, widespread starvation is expected by 2114. In recent months, food prices have skyrocketed and there is legislation making food hoarding illegal.
In the 1980’s a local Top Secret NSA biological weapons lab was shuddered. Most of its staff met a violent end at the hands of their infected co workers.

As a leading national expert on biological pathogens, your team has been quickly assembled in hopes of avoiding a national Outbreak.
