Everyone also has a hidden goal they want to achieve, as well as claiming public goals for additional points.

Co-designed by David Turczi (Anachrony, [redacted]), players using this expansion can discover effects they can use even before a being has been summoned. However, time travel has consequences, if a being’s effect is used, it has a strong wish to be summoned.
