Other Chronomancer Versions[edit]

The old version will remain so players can use the classes individually rather than combined. As the individual classes have been well balanced not many more changes will come to them while this class still needs to be balanced and worked on

Chronomancer[edit]

The Dwarven figure turned towards the approaching tribe of Orcs, the villagers behind him started cowering and screaming, running for cover. The figure starts to walk slowly towards the hoard, raising his right arm, the Astral Energy cracked and sparked as a glowing and shimmering sword materialises. A blue Astral shield forms on his left arm as he starts to run towards the opposing hoard lifting his sword high above his head.

Blades clash as the Human fighter looked his Half-Orc opponent in the eyes and grinned. Then with a blur of speed the Half-Orc was lying on the ground. When the fighter returned to the Arena's attacks the door didn't lead to where he expected. He looked all around him, time and space was fluid and stood there in front of him stood two god like entities. The Deity of Time and the Deity of Fate. They bowed to him and vanished. All that remained in front of him was two blades of pulsating energy. He went to pick up the weapons, instantly his soul felt ripped from reality, the weapons and he were one.

A Human sitting in a Ibarra looks up from his book and notices the wall starts to shift and warp he stands up and walks towards the wall, when he reaches it he is suddenly no longer in the library. He looks down at his arms, and where there should be pink human skin there was a bluefish black skin constantly shifting and changing. He looked up to see what could only be the Astral Plane, and just floating there were two unearthly forms. He looked at them as they opened their arms and bowed their heads in his direction. He continued to walk around this plane, witnessing a host of mysterious things. How much time has passed? He doesn't know, time here is as fluid as water, it could go backwards or forwards or cease to move at all.

The Astral Plane[edit]

The path of a Chronomancer is not a choice, one must be deemed worthy by The Twin Deities, Time and Fate. Once one has been chosen as a worthy being The Twin Deities will create a rift between the Astral Plain and the Prime Material Plane and pull the chosen through. The chosen being will spend much of their life here learning techniques from the Astral Beings, Beasts and The Twins. Though it would appear to the being that a long time has passed upon their return to the Prime Material Plane time may have passed far to the future or even to the past or in some cases time has not moved on at all. The Chronomancer are able to channel the Astral Plane through them no matter what Plane of Existance they are in, granting them great strength and power.

The Chronomancers[edit]

The Chronomancers follow a Chronomancy Timeline, Chronomancers who follow the Guardian Timeline are servants of the Time and Fate Deities who focuses on dealing and taking physical damage, Chronomancers who travel the Conjuror Timeline are servants of the Time and Fate Deities who focus on manipulating time to assist allies and hinder enemies. Chronomancers are rare but are often seen in pairs one in the Conjuror Timeline and another in the Guardian Timeline sent by their Deities to fix a rift in time or correct the course of history. To become a Chronomancer a mortal being must have gained the attention from The Twins and then pledged to spend eternity serving its Lords, once this happens the being is no longer mortal, their body will then travel the Timelines, Conjuror or Guardian.

Creating a Chronomancer[edit]

As you create a Chronomancer, think about what got you noticed by the Deities of Time and Fate and how you came to inhabit the Plane. Were you someone who looked too deep into Time and Fate magic or did the balance of the Astral Plane grasp your interest so you couldn't get it off your mind or were gifted Sorcerer who never thought that the passage of Time was just random or that things happened because of a greater reason? Maybe you were a warrior who also thought Time was on your side, being able to watch battles seem to unfold in slow motion or did you train to be so fast that all things around Moved slower than they should do? Did you happily give your soul for passage into the Astral Plane or were you ripped from your Plane of Existence and forced into the Astral Plane? Do you like your life in this form or do you want to return to your previous life?

Importance of Selected Items[edit]

As of yet the Gem of Time and the Weave of Fate have no other importance other than their function as an arcane focus. I'm currently working on possible things about these items, such as they are the one of a pair and the other one is placed in the astral plane and the chronomancer can use the items as gate stones when used one is dropped in the current plane allowing you to be returned to it. However, i'm sure there are better ideas so i'll keep working on them.

Astral Fighting[edit]

Beginning at 1st level, you have learnt how to channel and compress the Astral Energy flowing all around you into solid matter. Taking an action, you can summon, dispel or change your active weapon. You are proficient with the weapons you can summon. At 1st level, you can use;

- Shortsword. 1d6 piercing. Finesse, light, chrono.

Any weapon summoned with this feature has the chrono property. A weapon with the chrono property does additional damage equal to your chrono dice, as shown in the Chronomancer table. The weapon automatically dispels at the end of the encounter, unless stated otherwise.

Astral Defense[edit]

Your form is not entirely solid, you constantly seem to flicker in and out of this plane. Beginning at 1st level, your AC equals 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Intelligence modifier. Additionally, you do not need to eat or drink.

Vortex Touch[edit]

Beginning at 2nd level, your body pulses with a blue Astral Energy which flows over you and everything that you are holding. Whenever you damage a target with a chrono-weapon (unarmed strikes by the chronomancer count as chrono-weapons) the target takes additional chrono damage as shown in the Chrono Dice column in the class table. This damage is included when calculating damage when you score a critical hit.

Blessing of Fate[edit]

The Being of Fate can be called upon to intervene with the natural order of time to assist with their hero. Beginning at 2nd level, once per long rest you gain an advantage on initiative rolls. At 7th level, you can use this ability once per short rest.

Timeline Feature[edit]

At 3rd level, you choose a Timeline to dedicate your very being to, all the Timelines are detailed at the end of the class description. Your archetype choice grants you features at 3rd level and then again at 6th, 11th, and 18th level.

Ability Score Increase[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Languages of Time[edit]

The Gods of Time grant you some knowledge of the Ancient Languages. Starting at 5th level, you can learn one of the following languages; Abyssal, Celestial, Draconic, Deep Speech, Primordial or Sylvan. You can learn another language at 9th and 11th level.

Blessing of Time[edit]

At 13th level, as a bonus action you can call upon the Deity of Time and they will temporarily halt the flow of time around you while not slowing you.

Roll a d20 against a DC 10, if you succeed you can take another full turn straight after this one. On a failed save, take psychic damage equal to that of your chrono die as shown in the Chrono Dice column on the class table. (You may use this ability again but for each additional attempt the DC increases by 2 to a maximum of 20. This DC then resets after a short rest.)

Ethereal Movement[edit]

Beginning at 14th level, your feet seem to be hovering just above the ground. Your legs seem to faze through the ground meeting near to little resistance with roots, plants and other obstacles on the ground. You gain the ability to move along vertical surfaces and across liquids without falling during the move.

Timeless Body[edit]

At 15th level, having giving all of your material soul to the Twins of Time and Fate your body is no longer belong in the current time stream, and you no longer age and cannot be magically aged.

Timeless Body Variant[edit]

At 15th level, having given all of your material soul to the Twins of Time and Fate your body is no longer belong in the current time stream, and you no longer age and cannot be magically aged unless you will it. Once per day you can change the age of your physical appearance, giving you certain advantages and disadvantages in the situation, up to your DM's discretion.

Architects of Fate[edit]

At 20th level, the twins of Time and Fate appoint you to the Chrono Council and bestow upon you some of their reality bending power. If an attack you make with a weapon with the chrono property misses, you can instead make it a hit. Additionally, if you fail an ability check, you can treat the d20 roll as a 20. You also get the ability to stop time like the spell "Time Stop" for 1d6 rounds. Other Chronomancers aren't affected by this.

This feature cannot be used again until you finish a short or long rest.

Chronomancy Timeline[edit]

The Deities of Time and Fate select champions who aren't all the same, some are picked because they have delved in to casting Time-based magic and some because they have trained their bodies to move faster than what would usually be considered possible however, they tend to fit one of two Timelines.

Their Timeline is the only thing that allows one to learn information on the past life of the Chronomancer as they are a reflection of what they did in the material plane that caught the attention of the Deities.

Guardian Timeline[edit]

Back in the material realm those who follow the Guardian Timeline were some of the greatest fighters the world had seen. They were mortals who moved with un-human speed whose weapons could not be seen by the human eye, or they were mortals who had reaction times that just made everything around them appear to travel slower.

Those who enter this Timeline have dedicated to fight for the Deities as far as their mortal vessels can take them. This makes them fierce fights not retreating unless the Deities have told them so.

Astral Weaponry[edit]

Beginning at 3rd level, you gain the ability to manifest your astral weapon into some new forms that are unique to your timeline. You can summon two weapons as long as they have the light property for instance, you can summon two Shortswords or one Chrono Sword and one Chrono Shield. When you engage in two-weapon fighting, you can add your ability modifier to the damage of the second attack. You can now summon;

- Greatsword. 2d6 slashing. Heavy, two-handed, chrono.

- Bow. 1d8 piercing.Ammunition (range 150/600), heavy, two-handed, chrono. This weapon is summoned with 15 Arrows.

- Shield. AC +2. Chrono.

Any weapon summoned with this feature has the chrono property. A weapon with the chrono property does additional damage equal to your chrono dice, as shown in the Chronomancer table. The weapon automatically dispels at the end of the encounter, unless stated otherwise.

Rift Heal[edit]

Beginning at 3rd level, you learn how to channel the Astral Energy of others into your own life essence. Once per encounter, when you deal chrono damage you gain 1 chrono dice of hitpoints as shown in the Chrono Dice column in the class table, this cannot exceed your maximum hit points.

Fighter of Time[edit]

The world seems to move slowly around you when you are in the heat of battle. Beginning at 6th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn. Additionally, you can take the Disengage action as a bonus action on your turn.

Chrono Plate[edit]

Beginning at 11th level, you channel the Astral energy from the environment around you providing a solidified layer of pure energy over your skin you gain a +2 to AC. Additionally, the armour also allows a minute essence of mystical Astral energy to flow through you, you gain the ability to cast a number of cantrips equal to your Intelligence modifier per day. You can use the Astral Light, Astral Barrier, and Time Stride cantrips (See chronomancer spell list). At 17th level you gain a +4 to AC.

Rapture[edit]

Beginning at 18th level, you can create raptures in the continuum of time. You have have a pool of 4 rift marks when you hit a creature with chrono weapon you may use a bonus action to mark the creature once (reducing your pool by one). Once you have 0 rift marks left in your pool you can take an action to damage all creatures that have been marked, all creatures that have been marked take 1 chrono dice (as shown in the Chrono Die column of the class table) + 1d12 for each mark on the creature. You regain all expended rift marks after you finish a long rest. When you reach 20th level in this class you have a pool of 6 total rift marks.

The Conjurer Timeline[edit]

Those who follow the Conjurer Timeline were known during their time on the material plane as great conjurers and manipulators of time and fate. The school of Chronomancy is often a forbidden practice hence why those who practice it draw the attention of the Deities

This path is for those who dedicate their time to the altering of both time and fate through magical means and if often tread by those not wishing to directly interfere with the stream of time but rather guide others on the correct path.
