Storyline

Sitting on the fountain’s edge, a man is writing a few notes intently.

You glance over its papers, noticing the many scribbles. He finally raises his head and says: “I am Dr. Hodges. 

I come from 1665, and my people are dying of a horrible disease. No remedy exists in my century, and I even asked witches to create a magical healing potion. 

Unable to help me, they threw me in the future to find a remedy. But this city is so different from mine, I need a guide to walk its streets. May you help me?”
