A Brand New Fighter Archetype For 5th Edition

“Manipulating the flow of time is not entirely unlike manipulating arcane. In that dabbling in it without the proper safeguards or knowledge is a surefire way to get yourself destroyed in the worst ways imaginable.”

- Davidius Tilfoil, Time Strider

Time is the one unifying enemy of all mortal things. Farmers and kings, skremps and elves, no matter how long-lived an individual might be, or how arduous that life may have been, when the horizon of life comes into view, it always seems to be too soon. Countless sages and wizards have devoted their lives to slowing the march of time, some with marginal success and others with disastrous results, but few have found a way of genuinely subverting the one universal rule that binds all living souls together. Although, the fighters that call themselves Time Striders have figured out how to bend it spectacularly. 

  Reckless intellectuals, Time Striders are warriors that use their esoteric training and carefully crafted temporal focuses to arc the flow of time to their advantage, creating small temporal distortions that allow them to trap and hinder their foes or accomplish supernatural feats of martial prowess. Originally members of a secret sect that disbanded after its leader fell prey to the cosmic dangers inherent to over-tampering with time, there are few that understand the risks involved with temporal manipulation better than Time Striders.

This supplement includes:

  • The Time Strider fighter archetype.
  • 7 unique temporal focus abilities to choose from.

File Size:

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
