Where Time Stood Still

Where Time Stood Still

The plane is descending rapidly, Jarret struggling with the controls, searches anxiously for a possible landing site. Breaking through the clouds, the ground is suddenly upon him, and with one last heave on the joystick he prepares for impact.

Out of the wreckage tumble Jarret, the guide and pilot, Clive, a fat and wealthy man, Gloria, his delicate daughter, and Dirk, her newly betrothed. They have found themselves on a strange plateau, nestled between the peaks of the greater Himalaya. The only way out of their predicament is via a high mountain pass somewhere on the other side.

As our friends will soon be aware, everything is not quite as it seems. Protected by the mountains from both climatic and other outside influences, this land has remained undisturbed for millennia.

When your party is attacked by dinosaurs and harassed by cannibals it becomes apparent that no western man has been here and lived to tell of it.

You, who initially control Jarret, must guide your party along tortuous mountain paths, across rivers and bottomless chasms, through swamps and forest, in the increasingly desperate search for the passage home.
