The Chronomancer

Manipulate time through the time

What is a Chronomancer?
A Chronomancer is someone that manipulates time
in order to cast spells, alter reality, reverse fatal wounds,
and protect their body from the ravages of ageing.
Chronomancy takes immense focus and isnt a
natural form of magic and is only controlled by those
that have possession of a time shard.

On the topic of shards...


Time Shards are of course rare... Really rare. They're
only created when a time orb is shattered, and if that
happens when there are no other time orbs close in or-
der to stabilise the timeline, disaster is bound to unfold
around the shatter-point.

Spellcasting Focus
As the time energy is literally manifesting itself insi-

to direct it.
You dont need a spellcasting focus, but you may
use one if you so wish.
