The Campaign for Real Time was founded to prevent mucking up of the timestream. It was instigated by the incident wherein the Songs of the Long Land, poems of the famous poet Lallafa, were perceived to lose their value thanks to the meddling of time travelers. Though mocked at first - preserving time hadn't been fashionable since the outrage over aorist rods - it gained credibility when the Cathedral of Chalesm ceased to exist a few weeks later. Indeed, it is plain that a lot of history is now gone forever. The Campaign for Real Timers claim that just as easy travel eroded the differences between one country and another, and between one world and another, so time travel is now eroding the differences between one age and another. "The past," they say, "is now truly like a foreign country. They do things exactly the same there."
