About the Character:

The Magister Ludi, or Master of the Game is the venerable master of the Crystal Bead Game, which integrates all human knowledge and experience and which is conducted in the Grand Retort of Castalia, Middle Earth on the shores of the Great Central Sea at the Bay of Pellucidar at the Verne-like center of the Earth. The events and movements of history and the destiny of the human race are mysteriously tied in parallel to the continuing outcome of this game. When the game reaches a stalemate by which the human race may come to an end through nuclear armageddon in a World War III the Magister Ludi sets in motion a plan for saving mankind by sending Sartorius and his colleagues through a Wormhole from the center of the earth to the black hole in the center of the Milky Way Galaxy to the gathering of the Council of the Immortals, there to retrieve the Missing Silmaril Crystal which alone can break the stalemate. The role of the Magister Ludi echoes and onwardly develops Hermann Hesse’s classic character. At the end of Book Two, the Magister Ludi is revealed to be a time traveler from the 23rd Century,  Senator Abor Linkin, who has returned to our present in pursuit of Caesarion Khannis, escaped war criminal and the leader of a failed coup attempt to overthrow the 23rd Century democratic United States of Earth and its Senate by, like Julius Caesar, ending the Republic and ushering in a Universal Empire with himself as autocratic Emperor. The Magister Ludi in the 23rd Century learns of Khannis’ time-travel plot to change a benign history for the worse a la Terminator by aborting Sartorius’ United Nations Parliamentary Assembly and the use of terrorism to ignite a World War III instead. He then also a la Terminator pursues back in time and finally defeats Khannis and the plot to subvert history with Sartorius’ aid, returning him to the International Criminal Court of the 23rd Century to stand  trial for Crimes against Humanity and Crimes against Time and History.
