"Only you can save us," an older version of yourself said.  "I didn't, but you can." He handed you a book and a die as he faded away.  Passages were missing from the book, but you could infer your nemesis was erasing your existence; the die would allow you to move through time to stop him from interfering with your temporal selves as they faced critical challenges.
