Aeonics is arguably the most powerful of the high magic rituals, since it allows the manipulation of time itself. It is sometimes referred to as Chronomancy. Gazing into the past or peeking into the future, even if its only by a few moments, can generate many powerful spells indeed, though it has a heavy power cost. By using these temporal spells on others, they could become the victim of timewarping, which will cause them to become further displaced out of time. The more timewarped someone, the slower they can recover equilibrium/balance recovery.

MindClock

Syntax
TIMECHANT MINDCLOCK

You can synchronize your thought processes with your body's inner clock. This will enable you to be partially immune from getting out of sync through aeon effects.


Aeon

Syntax
TIMECHANT AEON <target>

By focusing on another's inner clock, you can throw it out of sync and lock that person in a aeon field.


Insight

Syntax
TIMECHANT INSIGHT

By turning inward, you can take control of the chaos of your mind and emotions, forcing them into order. Upon cold reflection, you can find insight into your own being, which will provide some protection against some ailments of the mind.

Additional Notes:
Provides a chance to avoid being afflicted with Lucidity Slush afflictions.


TimelessBody

Syntax
TIMECHANT TIMELESSBODY

By tempering your body with the time field around you, you can provide some protection against some physical ailments.


Ageing

Syntax
TIMECHANT AGEING <target> <years>
Power: 10 (Matrix)

You can add or subtract up to 20 years to any individual. However, you cannot reduce anyone's age below 18. You cannot ever reduce or increase someone's age 20 years in either direction beyond their natural age. Note that this is permanent.

Changelog:

  • Aeonics Ageing can be used on yourself. (#134 on 04-16-2012)


TimeWarp

Syntax
TIMECHANT TIMEWARP <target>

By warping time around another, they will suffer from a longer delay in quicksilver speed defence and take longer to concentrate on equilibrium if it is disrupted. You can stack multiple timewarps around a victim to achieve a cumulative effect.


Alacrity

Syntax
TIMECHANT ALACRITY
Power: 1 (Matrix)

Surround yourself with a specialized temporal field that will spread healing throughout your body. This time distortion will also extend around any weapons you hold, making them move faster.

Additional Notes:
Heals 20% of the user's maximum health 5 times, 16 seconds apart.


TemporalBonds

Syntax
TIMECHANT TEMPORALBONDS

By setting up temporal bonds in a location, your enemies will have trouble leaving the location.
Even if they manage to break through the temporal barriers, they will suffer warps in time.


TimeEchoes

Syntax
TIMECHANT TIMEECHOES <target>
Power: 3 (Matrix)

Surrounding someone with echoes from time will afflict them with temporal ailments as well as warping time around them.


PastGlimpse

Syntax
TIMECHANT PASTGLIMPSE

You can send a message to yourself in the past to avoid being afflicted by one ailment.

Additional Notes:
Instantly cures one random affliction.


FutureGlimpse

Syntax
TIMECHANT FUTUREGLIMPSE

By glimpsing into the future (or perhaps your future self is glimpsing into his or her past which is your present), you can avoid certain afflictions. The future is fuzzy so there is only a 20% chance of avoiding any afflictions and each time you succeed in avoiding an affliction, there is a 50% chance that your glimpse into the future will fade.


Oracle

Syntax
TIMECHANT ORACLE <target>
Power: 3 (Matrix)

By acting as an oracle, you can show the darkest of possible futures open to an individual, possible futures that will haunt that person and drive him or her to madness and distraction.


SwitchFate

Syntax
TIMECHANT SWITCHFATE

This defense will last only a short time but while it is in effect, there is a small chance that any damage done to you will instead be transferred to an enemy who is in your local area. Note that you cannot switch fate with the person who attacks you.


AeonField

Syntax
TIMECHANT AEONFIELD
Power: 5 (Matrix)

Vitals Malus: -3/-10 Mana, Ego

By surrounding yourself with a powerful aeon field, your enemies will suffer from the aeon curse every time the field pulses as well as being time warped.


Contingency

Syntax
TIMECHANT CONTINGENCY <target>
Power: 5 (Matrix)

You can set up a contingency spell that is targeted against one individual. If that one person damages you when you are below half health, the contingency will automatically be triggered. Your contingency will cast pastglimpse, futureglimpse, and foresight.


Displacement

Syntax
TIMECHANT DISPLACEMENT <target>
Power: 10 (Matrix)

You can temporally displace an individual, taking them completely out of the timestream for a very brief time. The length of time depends on how time warped they are (if at all). This ability has a low minimum timewarp threshold before it can be activated on a target.


Foresight

Syntax
TIMECHANT FORESIGHT
Power: 1 (Matrix)

Using foresight, there is a chance that you can avoid incoming attacks by keeping an eye on future events. Unfortunately, this defense will not last long.


TimeQuake

Syntax
TIMECHANT TIMEQUAKE

TIMECHANT TIMEQUAKE <target>

Power: 10 (Matrix) (If untargeted)

8 (Matrix) (If targeted)

By setting forth a timequake, you will kill all enemies in your location who are massively time warped. Enemies suffering from a lesser timewarp will survive but will also be subject to time echoes.


Paradox

Syntax
TIMECHANT PARADOX
Power: 5 (Matrix)

Travelling through time sets up various different paradoxes. By using the paradox factor to your advantage, you can be helped by your future selves who will visit you and help you defeat your enemies. Each future self will attack a random enemy in your location with one of the following: time echoes, oracle, aeon, timewarp or displacement.
