The Doctor Is In
Christmas, 2016. A fine lady lands delicately near a trash heap at the end of a desolate street, and begins to talk at the cans sitting there.
“He needs help! truly this time.”
“Oh, it's you, huh? Back for seconds.”
“Oh come now. You promised if it was dire enough, or long enough, that we’d reveal ourselves. Don’t make that a piecrust promise.”
“Humph. There is no long enough for what he did. You’ve always been too soft on the boy.”
“Practically perfect people never permit sentiment to muddle their thinking.”
“Bah. I’ll be in my can. Keep watch and let me know if things look REALLY dire. Then we can call in the troops.”
The Doctor is in trouble. His enemies are working together in an unholy alliance. His Companion is captured; the Doctor himself is wounded, kept from regenerating as his power seeps from him slowly, feeding the Machine that will end the World.
It may finally be time to end his banishment. Maybe. If the remaining Time Lords can be convinced to come out of hiding… If they can forgive him for the unthinkable.
Pre-gen Time Lords include: Mary Poppins, Oscar the Grouch, Snoopy, Santa Claus, Willie Wonka, Gandalf, and Calvin (with Hobbes). Others available if you can convince the GM and write up the character prior to the con.
