Experts at the control over moments and their arrangement of events in the cosmos, time sequencers sort and adjust motes of time to heed their will. These mages are trained to look into realities far beyond our own to perceive events from billions of years ago in the past as well as just as far into the future. They study the present and everything in between in order to find motes of time. These motes are small fragments of useless time that would never be missed and will affect nothing in either the current reality or divergent timestreams. These mages utilize arcane powers from both the Astral and Material plane that reaches into time to bring forth creation and destruction to the battlefield. Restoration and decay come by the bending time either to a time of death or to a time where nothing was wrong. They may bring forth the deadly gas of a supernova just as readily as they may invoke the chaotic darkness when the forces of hell mastered their planet in the past. Every spell they cast has to do with the rearrangement of these minor fragments of time.

Role: Time Sequencers spend much of their time traveling the world, time, and universe, learning whatever martial or arcane secrets they can find. Time Sequencers can be powerful healers or exploit destructive or even cursing spells, however, their primary role is to guide a company of adventurers, explorers, and people who don't fear the unknown, safely through their trials by supporting their allies and debilitating their enemies.

Abilities: Intelligence is a primary ability for this class, followed by Dexterity and Wisdom. For optimization, charisma and strength are primary dump stats.

Alignment: Any.

Hit Die: d8.

Starting Gold: 4d6×10 gp (average 140 gp.) In addition, each character begins play with an outfit worth 10 gp or less.

Class Features[edit]

The following are the class features of the time sequencer.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency[edit]

Time Sequencers are proficient with all simple weapons, plus the rapier, sword cane, and whip. They are proficient with light armor, but not with shields. A time sequencer can cast spells while wearing light armor without incurring the normal arcane spell failure chance. Like any other arcane spellcaster, a time sequencer wearing medium or heavy armor incurs a chance of arcane spell failure if the spell in question has a somatic component. A multiclass time sequencer still incurs the normal arcane spell failure chance for arcane spells received from other classes.

Spells[edit]

A time sequencer casts arcane spells drawn from the time sequencer spell list. A wizard must choose and prepare their spells ahead of time.

To learn, prepare, or cast a spell, the time sequencer must have an Intelligence score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a time sequencer’s spell is 10 + the spell level + the time sequencer’s Intelligence modifier.

A time sequencer can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. Their base daily spell allotment is given on Table: Time Sequencer. In addition, they receive bonus spells per day if they have a high Intelligence score (see Table: Ability Modifiers and Bonus Spells).

A time sequencer may know any number of spells. They must choose and prepare their spells ahead of time by getting 8 hours of sleep and spending 1 hour studying their time repository. While studying, the time sequencer looks into the future and past, and then decides which spells to prepare.

Starting Spells (See Time Repository below): A time sequencer begins play with a time repository containing all 0-level time sequencer spells plus three 1st-level spells of their choice. The time sequencer also selects a number of additional 1st-level spells equal to their Intelligence modifier to store in the time repository. At each new time sequencer level, they gain two new spells of any spell level or levels that they can cast (based on their new time sequencer level) for their time repository. At any time, a time sequencer can also add spells found in other alchemist's formulae books, time reliquaries, or wizards’ spellbooks to their own (see Magic), as long as the spells are on their spell list.

Spells Gained at a New Level: Time Sequencers perform a certain amount of time delving into the past, present, and future for research between adventures. Each time a character attains a new time sequencer level, they gain two spells of their choice to add to their time repository. The two free spells must be of spell levels they can cast.

Time Repository[edit]

A time sequencer must study their time repository each day to prepare their spells. A time repository is a small box that the time sequencer has constructed or purchased. As the time sequencer looks through their own timeline, alternate timelines, or the distant future or past, they make notations and pull out motes of time for use later in the day. These are stored in the time repository.

Each day as part of their hour of studying, the time sequencer must perform seemingly random actions. These can be something similar to digging into the earth, moving a bush in front of themselves to hide better, taking one of their companion's pouches and sneaking away with it only to return a moment later with it. These actions seem chaotic, but they help the time sequencer have a readily available pool of resource actions to pull sequences from without searching the cosmos or time for their use. These sequences later help them cast their spells. For example, a 5th level time sequencer has studied their time repository for the spell Endure Elements, Communal. That morning, they put extra logs on the fire and make it extra toasty. Later in the day, when they need to endure elements, these seemingly random actions can be pulled from earlier to help heat them.

The time sequencer cannot prepare any spell not stored in their time repository, except for read magic, which all time sequencers can prepare from memory.

A time sequencer begins play with a time repository containing all 0-level time sequencer spells plus three 1st-level spells of their choice. The time sequencer also selects a number of additional 1st-level spells equal to their Intelligence modifier to store in the time repository from their own knowledge.

Adding Spells to a Time Sequencer’s Time Repository: Time Sequencers can add new spells to their time repository through several methods. A time sequencer can only learn new spells that belong to the time sequencer spell list.

Spells Gained at a New Level: Time Sequencers perform a certain amount of spell research between adventures. Each time a character attains a new time sequencer level, they gain two spells of their choice to store in their time repository. The two free spells must be of spell levels they can cast.

Spells Copied from Another Spellbook or Scroll: A time sequencer can also add a spell to their book whenever he encounters one on a magic scroll, by sharing information with a spellcaster, or by reading a wizard’s spellbook with a read magic spell. No matter what the spell’s source, the time sequencer must first decipher the magical writing (see Arcane Magical Writings). Next, they must spend 1 hour studying the spell. At the end of the hour, they must make a Spellcraft check (DC 15 + spell’s level). See Writing a New Spell into a Spellbook for similar associated costs.

Destroyed Time Repository: If a time sequencer's time repository is for some reason destroyed, they possess the ability to recover it from the past. This ability is inherent in the time sequencer and like read magic, does not need to be prepared to bring into effect. Despite it coming back into existence, it will only contain the bare minimum of spells. Any additional spells gained by being copied previously are lost and must be obtained again.

Cantrips[edit]

Time Sequencers can prepare a number of cantrips, or 0-level spells, each day, as noted on Table: Time Sequencer under “Spells per Day.” These spells are cast like any other spell, but they are not expended when cast and may be used again.

Foresight[edit]

At 1st level, by focusing on the day ahead, visions of certain events have been seen in part in the mind of a time sequencer. Foresight grants the time sequencer the ability to add an insight bonus to their Reflex saving throws. This increases by +1 every 5 levels.

Lost Tongues (Ex)[edit]

At 1st level, the time sequencer gains the ability to learn unknown, dead, or even forbidden languages. Any time they gain a rank in linguistics, they gain an additional language. The additional language chosen must be one of these rare languages in addition to what was originally chosen. Oftentimes, if taking a language such as Elven, the player will choose Ancient Elven, as a language, but are not restricted in this manner. This ability does add unattainable and forbidden languages such as druidic. There may be consequences for speaking such languages outside of these circles, however.

In addition to this ability, the time sequencer is able to speak these languages they have learned as if continuously affected by the cultural adaption spell without the increase to enchantment DCs.

Time Log[edit]

Time Sequencers are trained to keep obsessively detailed notations of events in the past, present, and future that are stored in their time repository along with these motes of time. These writings are often in languages lost to time so as to keep their secrets to themselves. No one but a time sequencer can read and fully comprehend the book. While a comprehend languages spell may reveal the language used in the book, the mismatched confluence of the past, present, and future style of notation still cannot be understood by anyone so unconnected with the sequencing of time. Because of this book, the time sequencer gains knowledge of events beyond their own capability. This grants the time sequencer a +1 insight bonus to their Knowledge skill checks. This ability increases by 1 for every 2 time sequencer levels. Much like an obsession log for a gnome, this book also gives a +2 circumstance bonus when consulted (taking 1 minute) on their next Craft or Profession check they make.

Distorted Time[edit]

At 2nd level, a time sequencer gains the ability to reach into the future or past to utilize motes of time from many different timelines. Each of these motes of time can be used a number of times a day equal to 3 + the time sequencer's level. After 8 hours of rest and reconnection with their time repository, these motes of time are restored to full. Each of these abilities listed below, even if not indicated, use a minimum of one mote of time to use.

Each mote of time can be used to fulfill various actions. At 2nd level, a time sequencer can choose to learn one ability from the list below and gains one additional choice every 2 levels beyond 2nd. If not otherwise stated, a needed saving throw against a time sequencer's Distorted Time ability is (DC 10+1/2 the time sequencer’s class level + their Intelligence modifier.)

Afterimage (Su): As a standard action, the time sequencer can surround themselves with an envelope of time that increases their speed to ungodly proportions within the constraints of the sphere. While this is in effect, any creature that comes within 5ft of the time sequencer is met with such speedy strikes so that they are quickly crippled. Any creature moving into this zone or in this zone by the end of the time sequencer's turn is affected by fire from their inertia and pain from a series of force-like blows based on the time sequencer's micromovements. This effect causes them to take 1d6 points of fire damage + 1d6 every 4 levels and they are considered to be on fire. A successful Reflex Save (DC 10 + 1/2 the time sequencer’s class level + their Intelligence modifier) negates the fire effect and they take half damage. If an opponent directly hits the time sequencer with a weapon, unarmed strike, or natural attack, they immediately take 1d6 points of fire damage.

Combine Timestream (Su): Time can be switched for the advantage or disadvantage of anyone the time sequencer targets. By looking into the past, present, or future, the time sequencer finds an alternate timestream that they can resequence to attach to their target. For the price of one mote of time, this can cause one ally within 30ft to ignore the effects of confusion as though the effect was countered. For an enemy within 30ft of the time sequencer, they can cause a confusion effect as per the spell for their level. This effect can be reduced to one round with a successful Will saving throw. This can only be chosen by a time sequencer of 12th level.

Decelerated Strike (Su): As a standard action, the time sequencer can utilize one use of their motes of time to slow incoming attacks to such a point that they rarely are injured by these blows. This ability functions in similarity to the arcanist's arcane expoilt armored mask ability, with their additional cost for the shield being another mote of time.

Defoliation of All Things (Su): By spending a mote of time, the time sequencer manages to defoliate an area of all plant life. All leaves decay to dust, fruits age to seed and melt away, trees age, crumble and waste away to nothing but a shell of what they once were. Nothing living of plant life remains and all impeding or even magical means of entanglement based on nature is destroyed. This affects a burst area centered on the time sequencer of 20ft. By spending an additional mote of time, the time sequencer can increase the range by 20ft. Plant-creatures caught in this area take 2d8 points of damage + an additional 1d8 for each additional mote of time spent on the range. An additional mote of time can only be added up to 1/2 the maximum of the time sequencer's level.

Destroy Effect (Su): By expending one mote of time, the time sequencer can attempt to send a spell into the void of nothingness. This is in essence, a counter to a spell as it is being cast. The time sequencer must identify the spell being cast as normal. If they successfully do so, the time sequencer can attempt to counter the spell as an immediate action and by expending an available time sequencer spell slot of a level at least one higher than the level of the spell being cast. To counterspell, the time sequencer must attempt a dispel check as if using dispel magic. If the spell being countered is one that the time sequencer has prepared, they can instead expend an available time sequencer slot of the same level, and they receive a +5 bonus on the dispel check. Counterspelling in this way does not trigger any feats or other abilities that normally occur when a spellcaster successfully counters a spell.

Entropy Shield (Su): The time sequencer can cause a field of time distortion to surround around themselves or an ally within 30 ft. This field deflects incoming arrows, rays, and other ranged attacks for 1 round per time sequencer level you possess. Each ranged attack directed at the subject for whom the attacker must make an attack roll has a 20% miss chance (the subject gains concealment). At 12th level this miss chance increases to 50%.

Evasion (Ex): A time sequencer can manipulate probabilities to avoid even magical and unusual attacks. If they make a successful Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, they instead take no damage. Evasion can be used only if the time sequencer is wearing light or no armor. A helpless time sequencer does not gain the benefit of evasion.

Hazard (Su): Using their ability to affect time, a time sequencer can cause disorganization in the natural sequence of things to any target within 25ft + 5ft per level. This causes a hazardous condition to manifest and affect a single target. This hazard deals 1d6 points of damage + 1d6 points of damage every two class levels. A successful Reflex Save (DC 10+1/2 the time sequencer’s class level + their Intelligence modifier) results in half damage. This can result from something improbably being pulled through a time warp in a different stream of time and falling from the sky, or pulling the hazardous winds of a swirling hurricane to the current timeline, or even a dramatic lightning strike from a time where a storm rages. The actual damage type is subject to GM determination but the default is often bludgeoning.

Focused Time Sequencing (Su): Most sequences that a time sequencer pulls from the past, present, or future are known in vague, obscured details to bring about portions, or fragments, of that reality to cause an effect. By spending a mote of time, a time sequencer can focus for an hour to locate some distant piece of specific knowledge. This can be the location of a person or object, or even a shred of important information that the time sequencer forgot. Some time sequencers have been known to look into the past to find combinations to locks or how a specific item was made. After focusing for an hour on this portion of reality, the mage is staggered for 24 hours as they are racked with the odd sensation of being in two realities at once. The mage can rest for 4 hours in a quiet place to end this effect early. Furthermore, it is difficult to look into timelines and places you are not and attain specific details. Because of this, not all information is available and is subject to GM discretion. This ability can only be selected by someone 8th level or higher.

Invoke Primal Failure (Su): When a target within 100ft of a time sequencer utilizes a magical item that would require a use magic device check to activate (whether they need to use it or not), by spending a mote of time as a readied action, the time sequencer invokes a time when the activator was not as proficient with their magical item. This causes a 30% chance that the magical item causes a critical failure when used. The magical item is not harmed by the results of this failure. Otherwise, this critical failure acts as normal for activating an item but also has an additional 10% chance of creating a primal magic event at the item user's location. A time sequencer must be 6th level to take this ability.

Invoke Primal Magic (Su): When an event within 100ft of the time sequencer would trigger a chance for a primal magic effect, the time sequencer can spend a mote of time as an immediate action to increase the chance this event occurs by 30%.

Lesser Simulacrum (Sp): The time sequencer has taken enough fragments and motes of time to create an identical version of its target. Through sheer magical force and imparting their own will into the creation, it will do their bidding for a small amount of time. This ability creates a lesser simulacrum as per the spell at the time sequencer's current level. The time sequencer does not have to pay the 50gp material cost to create the simulacrum but it does cost them 5 motes of time to cast. Only a character of 8th level can take this ability.

Lost in Time (Su): As a standard action, the time sequencer can spend a mote of time to cause any enemy targeted with this ability within 30ft to find themselves lost in time. For a short period, they are placed in a mirror dimension of some distant time sequence. This can be terrifying, as their minds are not capable of understanding what they are seeing; be it cataclysmic world-ending events, prehistoric creatures roaming around them, or something terrible in their own past. The target makes a Will Saving Throw to resist this effect. If they fail, for 1d4+1 rounds the target vanishes from the battlefield completely. No harm can come to them at this time. When they return to the battlefield, they are shaken for as many rounds as they were gone from the battlefield.

Magical Mishap (Su): When the time sequencer readies an action as though to counterspell or utilizes their destroy effect ability, they can use this ability as a free action. This costs 3 motes of time and causes some of the components of the spellcaster's spell to be misplaced in time. This causes a mishap to take place that has various effects. Roll on the table below to find out what mishap occurs:

Table: Roll a D8
Result Magical Mishap
1 A surge of uncontrolled magical backlash explodes in the spellcaster's face dealing 1d6 points per level of the spell countered.
2 Waves of arcane force knock the caster a random direction 10ft + 10ft per spell level countererd and forces them to be prone.
3 The caster suffers a bizarre effect related to the spell for 1 round per spell level countered. This can be a fraction of the damage or some odd status effect but is usually not a boon.
4 The caster has a 50% chance to bring the spell into effect, but if it does, it ends up targeting either an ally for a harmful spell, or an enemy for a beneficial spell.
5 A time-distorted image of someone important to the caster's past appears in place of the target and causes the caster to be shaken for 1d4 + 1 round per spell level countered.
6 The spell has a delayed effect of targeting the caster, happening 1d6 rounds later.
7 The spell has a 20% chance of creating a primal magic event at the caster's location.
8 Roll Twice and apply both effects rerolling a result of 8.

Mighty Meteor: You channel a devastating event that happens either in the past, present, or future from some timeline. This event embodies the moment of a planetary cataclysm happening somewhere in the universe, or channels the exact moment when a massive meteor had at one point crashes into a planetoid. By opening a breach in the time sequence and spending 5 motes of time, the time sequencer is able to unleash a portion of this blast on foes within a range of 100 feet. The radius of this effect is 30ft and it deals 1d10 damage per level to a max of 15d10 at 15th. The target is able to make a Reflex saving throw for half damage. This ability can only be chosen by a character of 8th level or higher.

Oppressive Weight (Su): By spending two motes of time, the time sequencer wages war for 1 round every 2 levels (max 5) by focusing on a target within 30ft. This ability sends the target into the crushing weight of gravity witnessed at the planetoid's destruction date. These wild gravitational forces bear down and hinder the target in various ways for each of the rounds. When not affected by a status effect that needs recovery (such as prone), on the target's turn, they can act normally and are not held by gravitational forces. No additional motes of time can be used on the target of this ability until these rounds are completed. This ability cannot be used, even to select different targets, until the rounds for the first target are completed. Roll on the table below on your turn for each of the rounds that the target is affected. There is no saving throw for these effects. A time sequencer must be 5th level to choose this ability.

Table: Roll a D12
Result Gravitational Event
1 The target finds themselves thrust upward into the sky and then back down as gravitational forces bash them about. They take the falling damage (not prevented by feather fall effects) of 1d6 for every 4 levels of the time sequencer.
2 Violently, the target is thrust (from the perspective in relation to the time sequencer) to the left and right 30ft in a straight line each way from their original spot. Each hazard, creature, wall, or significant object they crash into deals 1d4 points of bludgeoning damage to them. Any creature hit by the target is dealt 1d4 bludgeoning damage +1 per time sequencer level.
3 Gravitational eddies rip with spike-like force into the target dealing 2d6 piercing damage + 1d6 slashing damage every 4 time sequencer levels.
4 The target is forced prone by the strong downward force of gravity. They must take a standard action to stand.
5 Pinpoints of direct gravitational pressures press in on the target dealing 2 points per time sequencer level.
6 The target is unable to balance properly as forces of gravity shift forward, backward, left, or right. They move in a random direction 25ft + 5ft per time sequencer level. Roll a d8 to determine the direction. This movement is subject to attacks of opportunity and hazards.
7 Nothing happens except the target feels a dread weight pressing on them. Increase their carrying capacity by 200 lbs. and adjust their carrying load appropriately as well as any penalties for the increased weight load.
8 If flying, the target plummets to the ground at incredible speed. They take the damage from the fall and are under the effect of the staggering fall spell. Nonflying creatures are not affected.
9 The target is lifted as if by hostile levitation for a turn to a height of 20ft + 10ft per 2 time sequencer levels. After this effect ends, they fall as normal. Effects such as feather fall or flying abilities work as normal.
10 The target is yanked about by gravitational forces from two directions as though placed in a torturous rack. This deals 2d6 points of damage + 1d6 damage every 4 time sequencer levels. Each consecutive roll of this option during the 5 rounds increases this damage by an additional 1d6.
11 As if at the center of gravitational force, the target begins to spin in their current spot uncontrollably, being battered violently against the ground or against their own limbs as they flop about. This deals 2d4 points of bludgeoning +1d4 points every 3 time sequencer levels.
12 The target finds themself crushed under an unbearable weight. They take 1d6 crushing damage +1d6 for every 4 levels of the time sequencer. They are immediately forced prone as their bones begin to be crushed under this force.

Overgrow Area (Su): By spending a mote of time, the time sequencer manages to bring to maturity an area of all plant life. All leaves come to full growth, fruits age and are ripened, trees grow to double their age in height, and underbrush, ferns, and vines overtake the area. This affects a targeted area selected by the caster up to 100ft away. The effect's radius is 20ft. Any creature caught in this zone is considered entangled by vines and undergrowth, unable to move unless they make a successful Reflex saving throw. This is difficult terrain and in order to be freed from entanglement, they must make a successful reflex save any time they attempt to move. A plant creature within this area is considered healed 2d8 points. Alternatively, the time sequencer can use this ability to bring a portion of a field to harvest without causing it to be overgrown to the point of entanglement.

Redo (Su): As an immediate action, the time sequencer can revert time for a physical skill they previously have failed at. While it may have appeared that they failed to do the task, suddenly, they may spend a mote of time imparting sequences of success to match their action. They add 1d4 points to their previous result after the result is known. If this 1d4 makes the skill check a success, suddenly, their failure becomes an odd success. For example, a successful climb check with this ability that was previously a failure, may make the time sequencer be able to be seen at the top of the wall, despite his allies having seen him fall initially from their original climbing check.

Resequenced Healing (Su): Due to their ability to reorganize time, the time sequencer can pull moments from their past, present, or future and impart micro proportions of an injury spread out over the course of their life. As a standard action, the time sequencer can gain 1d6 hit points plus their Intelligence modifier. At 4th level, the damage dice rolled for healing increases from d6s to d8s. Every 4 time sequencer levels, this damage increases another +1d8. This costs a mote of time for each use and this ability can be used once per day and an additional time per day every 4 time sequencer levels beyond 4th.

Resequence Innards (Su): In a brutal fashion, a time sequencer sends out a lashing whip of time that distorts all it touches. This can cause any creature's innards it hits to move forward and back in time rapidly, causing them great internal damage. The time sequencer can unleash this lash by expending one mote of time. This creates a 30-foot line of force that deals 1d6 points of force damage + the time sequencer’s Intelligence modifier, plus an additional 1d6 points of force damage for every 2 levels beyond 1st (to a maximum of 10d6 at 19th level) to each target in the line. Creatures in the area of effect may attempt a Reflex saving throw to halve the damage.

Rewinded Sight (Sp): As a standard action, the time sequencer can gain the benefits of the invisibility purge spell at their caster level. This ability takes a fragmented sequence of time from before those invisible within the range of the spell were so. This will not work to see beings who have always been invisible such as unseen servants. In order to work, there must have been some moment in their past that they were not invisible. Only a time sequencer of 8th level or higher can select this ability.

Speed Boost (Su): By using bursts of speed from your past, present, and future in the form of a mote of time, the time sequencer can, as a free action, increase their speed in a round by 20ft. This increases by 10ft every 4 levels. This ability lasts for 1 minute per level.

Time of No Planets (Su): By activating a mote of time from a segment where space and time have faded into gusts of solar winds and pulls of wild gravity forces, the time sequencer is able to affect their body with the effect of antigravity. This functions otherwise as a levitate spell using their caster level for the spell. This ability can only be taken by a time sequencer of 4th level or higher.

Time Stop (Sp): By spending five motes of time, a time sequencer can stop time altogether. This functions like the time stop spell but lasts 1d6+1 rounds instead. This ability can only be chosen by a time sequencer of 18th level or higher.

Too Many Clones (Sp): As a standard action, the time sequencer may spend a mote of time to pull fragments of themselves from various times. These near illusionary duplicates match the original's movements. This acts as the mirror image spell cast at their time sequencer level.

Too Slow (Su): As a standard action, the time sequencer can use a mote of time to initiate a field that slows time around them. This allows the time sequencer to dodge an incoming attack. For one hour per time sequencer level, as an immediate action, while this ability is functioning, you can cause any harmful attack roll to likely miss, even if unaware of it. This forces the attacker to roll twice and take the lower result. Once this ability has been used it dissipates. At 5th level, 10th, 15th, and 20th, this ability increases to include one additional attack before dissipating. Area of effect abilities and spells or spells without attack rolls still affect the time sequencer as normal and do not discharge this ability.

Twist the Sequence (Ex): A time sequencer can take 10 as a swift action or take 20 as a full-round action on one singular skill check that can normally be performed in one round even if they are distracted. They can grant this benefit to a creature within 30 ft., even if the skill normally doesn't allow the creature to take 10 or take 20.

Uncanny Dodge (Ex): A time sequencer can react to danger before their senses would normally allow them to do so. They cannot be caught flat-footed, nor do they lose their Dex bonus to AC if the attacker is invisible. The time sequencer still loses their Dexterity bonus to AC if immobilized. A time sequencer with this ability can still lose their Dexterity bonus to AC if an opponent successfully uses the feint action (see Combat) against them. If a time sequencer already has uncanny dodge from a different class, she automatically gains improved uncanny dodge instead.

Bonus Feat[edit]

At 5th level, 10th, 15th, and 20th level, a time sequencer gains a bonus feat. At each such opportunity, they can choose a metamagic feat, an item creation, or Spell Mastery. The time sequencer must still meet all prerequisites for a bonus feat (except Spell Mastery), including caster level minimums. These bonus feats are in addition to the feats that a character of any class gets from advancing levels. The time sequencer is not limited to the categories of Item Creation Feats, Metamagic Feats, or Spell Mastery when choosing those feats.

A time sequencer may also choose an Arcane Discovery, Arcanist Exploit, or an additional Distorted Time ability that they qualify for in place of a bonus feat at these levels. The time sequencer always uses their Intelligence modifier for these abilities.

Paragon of Time[edit]

At 16th level, the time sequencer is no longer affected by effects that hinder them. They are considered to have freedom of movement and cannot be placed in an imprisonment or stasis effect (unless they choose to be). They can choose to preemptively dismiss these effects and can always choose to see or hear time flow around them.

Mote of Life[edit]

At 20th level, a time sequencer has learned to take sequences not only from their lives but unnoticed moments of time from all life. They do not age, even magically, and have complete control over their aged appearance, appearing either as young or as old as they wish at any moment. They also become immune to diseases and poisons of all kinds. Death effects have no hold over them as they have seen and removed their death from time itself.

Time Sequencer Spell List[edit]

Creator Note: You will notice there are many spells here from various lists. Each of these spells represented the various spells that I could see being affected by a time sequencer. They are arcane spells, regardless of their origin (similar to bards). Players are encouraged to conceptualize how these spell events are pulled from various times and places on the astral and material plane, be it in the past, present, or future, purely for roleplay purposes. Here are some examples:

Breeze: The time sequencer manipulates a block of time in that region where he fights that a gentle blowing breeze had once moved through a valley. After having resequenced an aspect of that breeze to his present time and place, a breeze effect can be felt by the players in his party.

Illusion of Calm: The time sequencer opens up a time a few seconds ago when he was not moving. By replacing the present sequence with a fragment of the past, it seems like he once again is not moving, but in reality, he begins to sort through his pack for a potion.

Vision of Hell: At a time when demons roamed the material plane and fought against giants, humans were a footnote. A slave race. This was millennia ago. Far beyond the knowledge of mortal men today. By reaching into this distant hellscape, the mage imparts visions of it upon the real, living, material plane today, and causes terror to strike his unsuspecting foes.
