  • Old Farmer Klosk has a winery in the next valley. The Master has a go at running it, tending to the grapevines.

  • Cole fixes their water pump, and the bridge which goes across the river.
  • A weapon from the Time War has unleashed chronon distortion.
  • Cole constructs isolation suits — or Iso-Suits — with chronon distortion dampers, neurodampers and stabilisation fields built in. Initial models were attempts at making survival suits, like his own.
