Time Traveller (TTR)

The Time Traveller is a variant of the Astral Traveller profession, a Hybrid Spell-User of the Realms of Essence and Mentalism. Where the Astral Traveller specializes in contacting other Dimensions, the Time Traveller contacts other Timelines.

The Time Traveller's prime requisites (Empathy and Presence) and level bonuses (Academic +3, Concentration +2, Magical +1, Base Spells +2, Directed Spells +1, Social Skills +1) are identical to those of the Astral Traveller. The Time Travellerís unique Development Point costs are listed below. The costs for all other skills are identical to those of the Astral Traveller.

The Time Traveller's base lists are centered upon the three time-travel lists from the Rolemaster Companion V: Time Law (RC5 68), Timeís Master (RC5 69), and Space-Time (RC5 69). In the World of Novi they do not exist as "special" or Arcane lists.

The fourth Time Traveller base list is Time Lores (Novi LISTS), adapted from the Astral Traveller list Xeno-Lores (RC4 59). Its spells are identical except for the "Xeno-Lores" (levels 10, 14, 19, and 30) and "Dimension Lore" (levels 12, 16, 20, and 50) spells. These become "Time Lore" and "Period Lore" spells, respectively, which refer to other time periods rather than other planes or dimensions.

The fifth list is Time's Bridge (SL 44), functionally identical to the Astrologer base list.

The sixth list is not standardized. Because Time Travellers have a special affinity for the spatial and temporal aspects of magic, they may choose their sixth base list from among the following four Closed Essence lists: Rapid Ways (SL 72), Spell Coordination (RC1 16, CE version), Spell Enhancement (SL 72), and Spell Reins (SL 70). The three lists not chosen as the sixth base list may be learned as if they were Open.
