Due to a distortion in the space-time continuum, six characters from different time periods have been brought to Ki-pataw in the year of 1937. Players take on these characters on a mission to collect specific items/energies they need and go to the designated place in order to return to the time period from which they came. Alternatively, they can encounter other characters and choose to remain in Ki-pataw instead. The choice is for you, the players, to make.
InThe Tales of Ki-pataw, each player plays as one of six characters: capybara, modern girl, man from the future, witch, Japanese soldier, and tribal youth. Each character has their own missions to find the way home.
