Guardian Form Chronomancer[edit]

Blades clash as the Human Fighter looked his Half-Orc competition 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 barracks the door didn't lead to where he expected. He looked around and time and space was fluid and in front of him stood two Deities, one of Time and one of Space, they bowed and vanished. All that remained in front of him was some Golden-Brown armour and two blades pulsating with energy. He put it on and picked up the weapons and felt his body and soul being ripped from reality, the armour and he were now one.

The Chronomancer charged toward the hoard of goblins far faster than would be expected. Extending his hands to his side the Astral Energy compresses to form a blade glowing with Astral Energy lifting his other arm a shield forms out of more compressed energy. Seconds could be minutes, minutes could be hours he wasn't aware but all that mattered was the pile of bodies fallen in front of him. Once his made sure to remove the bodies he swings his sword in front of him creating a rift and steps through and returns to the Astral Plane.

Creating a Guardian Form[edit]

As you create a Guardian Form Chronomancer, think about what got you noticed by the Gods of the Astral Plane and how you came to inhabit the Plane. Were you someone who studied Time and the Guardians who bring balance to the Astral Plane and the Material Plane or a gifted Fighter who's always felt that time was on his side? Did you accept the passage into the Astral Plane wilingly 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?

(You can forgo all your extra attacks to force everything within 10 feat to make a dexterity saving throw. On a failed save, they take your 5d6 slashing plus your Chrono dice in damage, and half on a succeful save). 4d6 At 17th level any attack you make with a Chrono-weapon has advantage.

Rift Heal[edit]

Once per minute you channel the energy of Time and Space into a life essence. Starting at 3rd level, when you hit a target and deal Chrono damage you gain hit points equal to the Chrono damage.

Ability Score Increase[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 6th, 8th, 12th, 14th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of you 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.

Extra Attack[edit]

At 7th level your mastery of altering time while you fight allows you to move faster than expected allowing for another attack. You gain additional attacks at 11th and 18th

Chrono Plating Improvement[edit]

As you spend more time away from the Astral Plane the armour plating is less ethereal and starts to solidify. At 7th, 11th and 18th level the Chrono Plating's Armour Class improves by 2. Original Chrono Platting Armour starts at an AC of 16.

Rift Collapse[edit]

Target can make a Constitution save DC equal to Chrono damage to break free from the rift otherwise remains in the rift for rounds equal to your Strength modifier. Can be used once per short rest.

Time Warp[edit]

Starting at the 15th level, you can create an area of astral distortion as a bonus action, acting as a failsafe if you encounter danger. Returning to the distortion requires strenuous physical ability. As a bonus action, make a Constitution check with DC 20 - half your Chronomancer level (rounded down). On a successful save, you return to your astral distortion with the statistics of that position: HP, Movement left, Actions available, Items, Usable Abilties, with the DM's discretion. On a failed save, you take your Chrono dice as damage, and are stunned for one turn. You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Wisdom Modifier.

Timeless Body[edit]

Beginning at 15th level you no longer age and cannot be magically aged.
