In the game they mention that Malistare was once an "inspiring professor", until Sylvia Drake got sick and died. What if you could go back in time, when she was alive, Malistare wasn't evil and the Death school wasn't in Nightside?
You go back to warn Malistare that his wife is gonna get sick and he's gonna turn evil and... tell him everything! He laughs at the message, then asks you to supervise young Malorn Ashtorn's poison spell. He's doing it perfectly, until you step in to "correct" him, which ruins the spell and winds up infecting Sylvia with an illnes that "not even the Greatest Life wizard" could cure. So you were pretty much the cause of Malistare's madness.
CLASSIC TIME LOOP!
Could that have gone differently, or could there be a different time travel scene other than Grand Chasm?
Similar to Zeno's Paradox. Let's say there is an army, and a warrior sees and archer firing an arrow at him from 20m, he starts to run away, the arrow can only travel 100m. The warrioir runs 10m, and the arrow travels 9m, then the warrior runs 1m and the arrow flies .9m, the distance thing would keep getting smaller and smaller, yet the warrior will never get away, nor will the arrow hit him.
