Hyperborean Time-Warp.

This bloody winter has lasted forever and it's got me thinking about the 13-year Hyperborean cycle. The long winters never sat well with me. How could the plants and animals adapt to such a huge deviation from Earth’s climate and season? It just extends my suspension of disbelief past the breaking point.

So I've decided to implement sort of time-warp – where Hyperborea exists inside a temporal anomaly which operates at about 29× “normal” time.

I made a post on the subject; here's the link: Hyperborean Time-Warp

Anyone else doing something similar in their campaign?

Re: Hyperborean Time-Warp.

Ah - I should also mention... In my campaign Hyperborea orbits Kyranos/Saturn.

I honestly got so used to thinking of it that way that I forgot it's not the case in AS&SH as-published!

Re: Hyperborean Time-Warp.

Nah, not a problem for me considering that I’ve already accepted how the sea infinitely cascades over the edge of a hexagonal flat earth (among many other things). Neverthless, we all have varying triggers for breaking suspension of disbelief, so I’m glad you found a way to address this particular one for yourself.
