I'm also considering having them discover the Time Corps Earth there as well; their time travel technology only works in their own paralell because no other known paralells possess temporal entropy. Wristwatch-1 is the world of Timepiece; Wristwatch-2 is the world of the Hive. They both share the same history, which can only be accessed through use of their time travel devices.
Timepiece and Hive?

There are timelines set in 500 AD (like the Camelot timelines) or even earlier, like some of the Roman timelines or other ancient timelines. If they can be that far into the "past", why not one a little bit into the "future"?
Isn't the addition of magic a bit much? Let Merlin-1 and Cyberpunk-3 be seperate worlds.

I'd imagine that once things start getting really unstable, there's only going to be one ending point for it all: the First Crosstime War. Centrum, surprisingly, stays out of it; they're planning on waiting for both combatants to be weakened before they strike.

Neutral Powers: Centrum (Centrum), China (Merlin-4), other Centrum-aligned powers, non-Axis aligned nations (Azoth-7, Shikaku-Mon)
Axis Powers: Greater Germany (Reich-5), United States of America (Reich-5), Japanese Empire (Reich-5), Prussian Empire (Azoth-7), Swedish Empire (Shikaku-Mon), Killer Penguins (Merlin-1), Argentina (Merlin-1)
Allied Powers: UNIC (Homeline), United States of America (Merlin-1), NATO (Merlin-1), United States of America (Merlin-4), European Union (Merlin-4), Pacific Rim Alliance (Merlin-4), various Duncanite groups (Merlin-4)
Allied Powers:
The Crosstime war would be fun, but I don't see Centrum staying out of the war.

Hmm? The magic is how they stumbled across the greater parachronic multiverse to begin with. Unless Cyberpunk-3 is an actual world, and not your name for THS. And they are seperate from Merlin-1; they're Merlin-4.

Hmm... perhaps. I can't see them cooperating that well with the Crosstime Nazi Coalition, though, especially when they're further away than Homeline is. About the only one of the Allies they could actually attack would be THS on Quantum 6.

Sort of like how the Russians were more than happy to stay out of WW2 until Hitler acted like an idiot and attacked them.
