Crafting

Crafting is the practice of engineering a timeline specifically for recruitment, practiced by OTL and the Revisionists. A culture is created that is responsive to Revisionist or OTL beliefs – usually through a religious movement, as it is easiest – and social structures are put in place to raise soldiers for the Revisionists. These natives are raised with knowledge of metatime, combat and technical training, etc., and the faction come to collect a crop of new operatives. Crafting is a seldom-used technique, in part because of its difficulty and in part because creating these side timelines slows the mission as a whole—and because certain groups within the Revisionists and, notably, OTL, find it distasteful.
