Sorcery: Time Travel Spells

Sorcery: Time Travel Spells

Since we have teleportation and plane shift spells, we have to add time travel to them. Timeport and Timeport Other allow the caster or his subject to travel in time, respectively. Timeslip and Timeslip Other are the limited active defense versions of the aforementioned spell.

Timeport
Keywords: None.
Full Cost: 130 points.
Casting Roll: IQ. Special casting time (see below).
Range: Self.
Duration: Instantaneous.

You travel through time. To initiate a jump, you must visualize your destination, concentrate for 10 seconds, and make a IQ roll. You may hurry the jump, but your roll will be at -1 per second of concentration omitted (-10 to jump with no preparation at all). On a success, you appear at your target destination. On a failure, you go nowhere. On a critical failure, you arrive at the wrong destination, which can be any place the GM wishes!
You appear at your destination at exactly the same place you left your previous time – or as close as possible. This means the same place, but in a different time. If there is no corresponding “safe” location within 100 yards of your destination – for instance, if you jump while on an airplane to a destination with no plane at your location, or from a half-mile deep mine to a destination with no corresponding mine – the jump will fail and you will know why it failed. This does not prevent you from jumping into other types of danger, such as radiation, gunfire, or wild animals. If you have Danger Sense, the GM should roll before you make a hazardous jump; on a success, you get a warning.
You can carry up to your Heavy Load when you travel.
Statistics: Jumper (Time; Extra Carrying Capacity, Heavy, +30%; Improved, +10%; Magical, 10%) [130]. Note: The Improved enhancement removes the auto-fail on 14+.
  
Timeport Other
Keywords: Resisted (Will).
Full Cost: 238 points.
Casting Roll: Will. IQ to timeport.
Range: Unlimited.
Duration: Instantaneous.

If the subject fails to resist, the caster may try an immediate IQ roll to shift the subject to another time as if using the Jumper advantage (B64).
Statistics: Affliction 1 (Will; Advantage, Timeport Other, +2,100%; Based on Will, +20%; Malediction 2, +150%; No Signature, +20%; Sorcery, -15%) [218]. Notes: “Timeport Other” is Jumper (Time; Extra Carrying Capacity, Extra-Heavy, +50%; Improved, +10%; Reliable +10, +50%) [210]. The +10 for Reliable cancels the -10 for no preparation. Note: The Improved enhancement removes the auto-fail on 14+.
   
Timeslip
Keywords: None.
Full Cost: 35 points.
Casting Roll: Power Dodge (IQ/2+3).
Range: Self.
Duration: Instantaneous.

While this spell is active, once per turn, you can “dodge” an incoming attack by timeporting away from it 1 second into the future. This works as if you had Jumper (Time) (B64), but with no -10 penalty for lack of preparation.
You can carry up to your Heavy Load when you timeslip.
Statistics: Jumper (Time; Active Defense, -40%; Extra Carrying Capacity, Heavy, +30%; Faster Concentration 5, +25%; Improved, +10%; Limited Jump, 1 second forward, -80%; Magical, 10%) [35]. Note: The Improved enhancement removes the auto-fail on 14+.

Timeslip Other
Keywords: Resisted (Will).
Full Cost: 154 points.
Casting Roll: Power Dodge (Will/2+3). IQ to timeport.
Range: Unlimited.
Duration: Instantaneous.

If the subject fails to resist, the caster may try an immediate IQ roll to shift the subject to another time as if using the Jumper advantage (B64). This spell may only be used as an active defense.
Statistics: Affliction 1 (Will; Active Defense, -40%; Advantage, Timeslip Other, +1,300%; Based on Will, +20%; Malediction 2, +150%; No Signature, +20%; Sorcery, -15%) [154]. Notes: “Timeslip Other” is Jumper (Time; Extra Carrying Capacity, Extra-Heavy, +50%; Improved, +10%; Limited Jump, 1 second forward, -80%; Reliable +10, +50%) [130]. The +10 for Reliable cancels the -10 for no preparation. Note: The Improved enhancement removes the auto-fail on 14+.
