Have you ever bought a commercial RPG, in which the author loosely describes the history of the game world? This game is one in which the players play out the history of the entire game world, from its creation to its destruction. They each get seven characters (one of which will become a legendary figure in the history of the world), or one character for each age of the game world's history. Future characters can refer to the actions of the past characters, and in so doing the dead can become role models for the living. In this way, a player can alter the course of the history of the game world, through the actions of their seven characters. One may make a change, but seven can change everything.
