Scenario Specifics

This post will be the record of scenario specifics, and will get edited as they change.

On July 12th at 8:54AM all University owned property is thrown 14,000 years into the past. The landscape is generally like our own--assume rivers and lakes are about where you left them. (It's not true, of course, but assume!)

There are assumptions we need to agree on and work with. I will fill them in as we discuss them in the comments of this entry. Feel free to suggest ones I haven't thought of.


Warm. Warmer than now, in fact; just coming out of the interglacial.


It's either taiga or boreal forest. I'll point out some vegetation guesses and we can decide.

Megafauna would still be alive; that's a given of the scenario, because megafauna are cool.

What came with?

Good question. So far, University land and anything "on top" of it. Probably some stuff underneath it, too, but feel free to argue that one out. Anything not U-M property? Didn't come. So, we've got arboreal forest (or taiga) between the School of Social Work and West Hall--no road.

ALL U-M property. Broadly interpreted. Flint and Dearborn campuses. The Bio-station. Rental property? I vote yes, but I'm willing to discuss it.
