A human faces multiple orcs as they charge him. Suddenly they're looking the opposite way, the human forms a fractured space in front of them and fires an unstable vortex at them and destroys the orcs molecules one by one. An elf faces a tsunami as it approaches her party. She leers at the water and lifts her hand up then down, transporting her party to an empty plane, it's cold.

As a Paradox your powers are beyond comprehension. Time and Space bend to your will, but will damage your mind. You will need a strong will and mind to become one, even then it's a lot on the mortal body. Use fragments of the past as your weapon and support your party or disorient the enemy.

Creating a Paradox[edit]

What made you to become a Paradox? Did the gods do this to punish you for messing with time, did you just want to see your loved ones, or did you want to change the future or past.

Unstable Mind[edit]

At 10th level, you become more unstable, slowly losing the grasp of the situation then everything becomes clear. You begin to feel like you can create a whole new world within your mind. Within this world, all of you spells are amplified, adding an extra die roll to your attacks(Ex. Time clusters at level 10 would be 6d6 instead of 5d6)

Timed Reality Marble[edit]

Upon reaching 11th level, you can create a plane based off of your cognition. This plane can only last up to 5 minutes. The range to catch targets would be a 30ft radius.

Motifs like that would appear within the Reality Marble.

Fractured Mind[edit]

You're becoming more obese with your goal, losing sight of what's an ally or foe sometimes even. You become aloof and break habits to create new ones. You feel a great surge of power coming from your mind. Inside of your reality in your head you can now cause buffs and debuffs to whatever is in your reality, be it friend or foe.

Reality Marble[edit]
