The Ochoa Incident
Time requires continuity in some form or another. In order that this continuity be understood, the Ochoa Incident at Krondor was created. Let the mind games begin!
Salvadore Ochoa desired a way of incorporating a time piece within each identity so that everyone would be 'in sync'. Where before, identities would come and go haphazardly, he wanted identities to progress in an orderly manner. In other words, he got tired of trying to figure-figure, who was who and what they were doing. The time piece seemed like a good idea to bring together identities and create a standardization whereby he could easily see the progression of identities and the games that they were playing. Salvadore wanted the mixing and matching of identities and their actions to cease.
