Titanic - Adventure out of time summaryThe game begins April 14, 1942, during World War II. The player (Frank Carlson) remembers the failure of his mission 30 years ago aboard the Titanic. When a bomb explodes (after a bombing during the Blitz), he goes back in time and finds himself in his cabin on board the Titanic, the night of the sinking. He then has the opportunity to change the future by changing the past.
The main purpose of this story is to find the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, stolen earlier this year. It is supposed to be in the hands of Zeitel, a German colonel who travel on the Titanic, ostensibly to inspect the German embassies in America. The colonel traveled with his protégé, Willie Von Haderlitz. As the game progresses, Carlson learns that the Colonel has a contract with an art dealer to exchange the Rubaiyat against a rare painting. The Colonel and the art dealer (Sasha Barbicon) have an intermediate, a Serbian stowaway named Vlad Demonic.
In addition to his quest for the Rubaiyat and the table (which would be secret military plans), the agent learns that Willie is a Russian spy who has in his possession a book that contains the names of the Bolshevik leaders. This book should be given to the Secret Service of the Tsar that the Communist leaders were executed.
A final object finally appears, a diamond necklace that Sasha has stolen to pay Vlad and finance a Serbian terrorist group called the Black Hand. The objective of this group is to assassinate Archduke Franz Ferdinand, which will trigger the First World War.
During his mission, Carlson also performs several "sub-tasks" more or less connected to the plot "central" or victory conditions of the game These missions involve such a wealthy couple (the Lambeth) whose marriage goes wrong ( especially as our agent is an old friend of Lady Georgia Lambeth). He also meets a medium, a priest who returned from a mission in Africa, and an American businessman compromised by a letter. Carlson is assisted by Penny Pringle, his superior in the British Secret Service.
