Description

Always impeccably dressed, sharply groomed, and well-quaffed, Devlin takes pride in his appearance. This is more strategic than it is narcissistic, presenting himself as an unshakable foe not to be taken lightly. Never working up a sweat. His gear is well, stowed around his person, several obvious vials and spheres of alchemical solutions ready to hurl. A trademark clock hangs from a chain at his hip, which he is often seen manipulating as he speeds through time. Additional clockwork components are also placed across his person.

 

His movements are always precise, to the extent that almost every one of them seems pre-meditated. In fact, they often are. His sharp eyes are constantly scanning everything, though it becomes even more disturbing if they cease their constant motion and focus all their discerning on you. 

 

His voice is cultured, reflective of his well-heeled upbringing. His pronunciation is sharp, his vocabulary loquacious. There is often a hint of humor in his tone. Good humor if his mood is bright, vicious satire if he is feeling... competitive. His knowing smiles are much more common than than full laughs, though a good companion with a stirring joke can bring his guard down and allow some true feeling through.

 

Personality

Devlin is smart, and he knows it. He rarely misses an opportunity to let you know about it. He enjoys being better than others, and thrives on being one-step-ahead. In many ways, he is a complete arsehole. But his friends and companions might say, "Well, at least he's out arsehole!" For he is loyal to those who are loyal to him, and wants those around him to be their best. He might come across strong in his baiting and cajoling to do so, but he would tell you, "You can't argue with the results." His banter sometimes annoys his allies. It definitely annoys his enemies (at least those that can understand him, and he has developed many ways to make sure even the dullest of enemies understand his taunts and verbal abuse.), and he has developed more than a few ways to discombobulate them with words, in addition to his combat techniques. 

 

He can be very obsessive, and overly concerned with his image. If you interrupt his study of something or seem to denigrate him in some manner, his response is swift and forceful. Further, his relationship with time is... loose, to put it one way. This can have several effects that are a bit confusing for those around him. He has experienced several possible causal chains already, and his deep study of time has left him highly confidence (perhaps overconfident) in his own analysis of all outcomes. Thus, he can get upset when someone else begins telling him what to do. A little too upset.

 

Backstory

A Prodigy and a Wunderkind

Devlin was quite the prodigy as a younger man. He was first in his class at the prestigious Montillo University, making short work of his studies while still finding time for dances, carousing, and general debauchery. He once beat the famed 20th-Don Elviria Camastio at a game of Ajadrez. He spent summers learning acrobatics and simple pyrotechnics with the Jartha Grand Circus. The famed Wise Sons Troubadours taught him the art of the flanged lute (and according to Devlin, even offered him a spot in the troupe). His post-graduate studies were spent engrossed in deep alchemical studies and theoretical natural philosophy, during which he co-authored a famous paper on the relative time properties of arcsilver reagents. Devlin's future looked bright. 

 

Time Askew

An experiment on a fateful day lead to a new path in life. Devlin had spent an obsessive fortnight building a kind of clock which utilized very specific properties of an experimental chemical compound, several quasi-mystical clockwork components, and a dash of aether. Upon activating it, his consciousness was briefly de-coupled from the normal flow of time, his perception sped up, then slowed down, then he was viewing both the past and future seemingly simultaneously. Manipulating time wasn't unheard of among the magically powered, but he'd just seemingly found a way to tap into the time-stream through scientific study and chemical engineering. The discovery was invigorating, but also mind-bending. 

 

Devlin spent the next years of his life steeped in study and working on projects expanding this new magitech. He reduced and redesigned the clock into something much more compact and efficient. Elegant even. He began experimenting with his timeline. Outside of that first set of visions he got, he never got any glimpses of the future. He figured out some methods to view the path. He figured out how to slow his personal time, or speed it up, or cause strange stutters in the flow around him. He even figured out how to manipulate only his perception of time, allowing his mind to process and problem solve independent of how his body flowed in time. This opened up extraordinary possibilities. 

 

Any subject Devlin wished, he could become an expert on. He could read an entire book in what was subjectively mere minutes to others, his eyes flicking in hyperspeed as he flipped rapidly through the pages. He could practice skills with extraordinary rapidity, completing thousands of hours of practice in a fraction the time. He used his new technique as a springboard to magical study, enhancing what he already knew into other completely new spheres of power. Once he had expanded his abilities sufficiently, he brought them to the courts, guildhalls, and theaters of the world.

 

Iconic

For a time, he was a small sensation among nobility who sought entertainment or a man of useful skills in their court. Flowing from one to another, he solved problems, entertained, espoused wisdom, and helped them leverage power. He parlayed his abilities into personal fame. Devlin called on his early days in the circus to entertain noble and common alike with physical feats and alchemical spectacle with a showman's aplomb. Iconic Devlin, they began to call him, or Devlin the Amazing, Devlin the Icon.

 

It was on one such social and entertainment engagement for the Duke of Tonkio that Devlin discovered a new obsession. A nest of basilisks was causing all sorts of havoc on the far edges of the Duchy, and a representative of the Hunter's Guild was called in to take care of the beast. A number of inebriated members of the court with more boldness than good sense decided to accompany the whole excursion, and Devlin went along. Why not? Why not, indeed. There were several good reasons, it turned out, which for some of the accompanying nobles included loss of life and limb once the whole expedition went pear-shaped. Devlin kept a cool head, and used his time dilating abilities with great efficacy in assistance of the Hunter. Traps disabled the monsters, and chemistry destroyed them. The Hunter was impressed. Devlin felt alive as he rarely had.

 

The Hunter's Guild

The excitement of putting his life on the line, not to mention the sheer triumph of overcoming a powerful beast intent on destroying him, drew Devlin in like little else had. This was putting his abilities to a true test. Using his vast store of knowledge in tangible (and sometimes explosive ways). What else compared to the hunt? Certainly not gaining the applause of those prattling nobles in court. He joined the Guild immediately.

 

His mental abilities were strong, and his knowledge useful, but he needed to hone his body as much more of a weapon if he wanted to survive more than his first encounter. So Devlin through himself into training like he'd tackled his studies; with complete dedication and obsessive work. He was aided in making extraordinary progress by his ability to manipulate time, and his keen mind in studying and applying new techniques. He turned his chemical knowledge to the purpose of developing poisons that would defeat, or at least slow, some of the fiercer monsters out there. He studied with the best trainers in the guild, learning hand-to-hand techniques letting him fight with complete precision. Combining this knowledge and practice with the ability to perceive time more slowly, he found he was able to deliver strikes with unerring accuracy and speed, causing devastating damage. He put thousands more hours into being able to throw weapons with uncanny precision, delivering small spheres of chemical agents and mechanical shrapnel into impossible gaps in defenses. He used his unstable relationship with time to get small glimpses into where an opponent would be, setting traps and ambushes to take them out with little danger to himself.

 

Devlin has become an Icon in the Guild, not just in the courts. And he plays that part, not forgetting the value of showmanship and speaking generously of his own abilities (or denigrating others). Though he is physically in his third decade, he has spent so much subjective time sped up that he is years older according to the amount of time he's experienced. He's successfully hunted many monsters, and rid the world of many dangers.

 

Then the matter of the island came up. A vision from his first experience with broken time flashed through his mind the first time he heard about it. It was the last vision he'd seen of his future. Himself, several other figures (a few of which suddenly came into sharp focus, for he knew them), and a monstrous being made almost entirely of eyes and mouth, looming over them. It felt like... destiny. Even if he didn't believe in such nonsense. Devlin submitted his name for the expedition immediately. He had to find out what it meant.

BUILD

 

Unified Tradition

Asynchronous Fluid Dynamicist

Devlin uses his deep knowledge of chemistry and unique insight into space-time to accomplish many of his strongest effects. His original chronometer has been highly tuned, perfected, and distributed across his body. Rings, bracelets, armbands, pendent, brooch, and pauldron all combine and interact through aether and phlogoston pathways to create a chrono-dynamic field around Devlin, which he uses to breach the barriers between planes and alternate timelines bringing more dramatic effects into existence on this plane. He has used his manipulation of time to gain vast stores of knowledge, writing much of it in stores of memory distributed across his multiversal minds. His alchemical and mechanical perfection has enabled him to apply such techniques to enhance his abilities to supernatural degrees. Guild training has further built upon Devlin's repertoire, teaching him elegant fighting techniques and a plethora of ways to take out monsters. He always remains one step ahead of his opponents, physically and mentally, deploying well-placed traps to trip them up and well-targeted insults to manipulate them mentally. If needed, he'll create brief windows into other parallel realities in order to further confuse enemies, showing a brief illusory or quasi-real glimpse of himself or other doing something slightly different than the action taking place, leaving them dumbfounded as to what is actually real.

Oath Against ArtificeDevlin adheres to the tenets of the oath just fine (no firearms, metal shields/armor, devices using charges). His take is a little different than not using technology because he is a big fan of science and invention. Rather, metal plate and shield are too bulky, and besides that almost feel like "cheating" to him, thus he only accepts going unarmored (and in fact is much more effective that way). In addition, guns feel too imprecise - he thrives off the challenge of hitting opponents directly with a thrown object, or leading them into a trap. (1)

Oath of RitualDevlin has spread himself thin across the timelines, and the effect it literal. He is diminished slightly, thinned out, as he expands his consciousness each day to be able to flex through time. He has developed a costly fluid with which he may mitigate these effects, and if there is time and availability, he will imbibe this instead. (1)

Oath of LoyaltyTo the Guild. Which is an odd choice for him, both comforting and anathema at the same time. His curious relationship with causality has caused him to doubt any orders he gets from anyone. At the same time, it has left him unmoored. He found that he was able to place a lot of trust in the Guildmaster after working with them, and decided to trust in their guidance. He will do what they say. (1)

Oath of HumilityDevlin is not humble in his estimation of himself. However, he is when it comes to others serving him. With followers come responsibility. With titles come expectations and necessity. Neither work for the goals Devlin wishes to accomplish. (1)

Code of HonorKnowing the nature of causality, keeping to a code is important to Devlin. Not for the external view of honor, but for his own behaviors. (2)

Forbidden KnowledgeMadness: Instinctive Defiance. "Whenever another creature gives you an order or command, attempt a Will save. On a failure, you become antagonized towards that creature." DC14 -- Devlin's mental journeys through time have left him jaded at the thought of anyone knowing the proper decisions. He strenuously object to anyone giving him orders, outside of those very few he has given his loyalty to. (2)

Mechanical Summary

Devlin is exceptionally good at skills, particularly INT based skills, with nearly maxed out ranks in everything. Because Scholar. So he's a real skill monkey, and has ridiculously high knowledge checks (which is important, with a number of additional benefits of knowledge identification). His alchemy and some magic talents lend additional utility in day-to-day operations, including help around curing conditions and healing, and bringing specific kinds of damage.

 

In combat, he does excellent unarmed damage, but more importantly his thrown splash weapons deal that unarmed damage on direct hits. So he will hit very hard with ranged attack at medium ranges, and be able to take care of himself if an enemy closes. Montebank has several built-in feinting options, so if Devlin can cast, his enemies will often be feinted and he'll apply modest additional fatal strike damage and exploit effects. He also has a number of trap abilities on hand, and will do his best to stymy opponents with placed and thrown traps, and additional attacks based on those. His time magic will ensure that he is acting fast, and will further debuff his enemies.

CRAFTING ALCHEMY SPHERE FORMULAE

15 minutes to craft, can craft 4 at a time. Max 14. Craftsman halves time (7.5).

30 minutes to craft all formulae (up to 16).

Usual Lineup:

  • [1] Universal Alcohol: 15x Wakeful Whisky+Revitalizing Rum+Calming Cider+Vitalizing Vodka+Painkilling Perry (DC50) effectsCalming Cider: Creatures that drink this alcohol feel an incredible sense of calm, gaining a +2 circumstance bonus against emotion related effects for 1 hour. This bonus increases by 1 per 5 ranks in Craft (alchemy) that you possess.

    Painkilling Perry: Creatures that drink this alcohol are numbed to pain, gaining a +2 circumstance bonus against all pain-related effects for 1 hour. This bonus increases by 1 per 5 ranks in Craft (alchemy) that you possess.

    Revitalizing Rum: Creatures that drink this alcohol gain a +1 resistance bonus to the next saving throw they attempt within an hour. This bonus increases by 1 per 5 ranks in Craft (alchemy) that you possess.

    Vitalizing Vodka: Creatures that drink this alcohol gain 1d4 temporary hit points for one hour. The amount of temporary hit points granted increases by 1d4 per 3 ranks in Craft (alchemy) that you possess.

    Wakeful Whisky: Creatures that drink this alcohol can remain awake for eight hours without feeling sleepy, granting them a +2 circumstance bonus against sleep effects. A creature can drink this drink to avoid needing to rest, but any vigorous activity such as fighting, traveling or similar ends the effect, and creatures must drink another or sleep for the remaining hours to avoid fatigue and to gain the benefits of a full night’s rest. The bonus increases by 1 per 5 ranks in Craft (alchemy) that you possess.

    A creature can only benefit from one drink at a time, although a single drink may have multiple alcohol types mixed together by raising the Craft DC. You can increase the Craft DC of this formulae when creating a set of drinks in increments of 10 to apply the effects of an additional alcohol type for each increment to the set of drinks, allowing a creature to benefit from multiple alcohol types at the same time from those drinks.
  • [1] Cherry Bombs: 15x, 6d4. Increase DC to 65, +5DC to avoid splash damage
  • [4] Panacea: DC40, remove all listed conditions. ConditionsDC 20: Deafened, fatigued, shaken, sickened.
    DC 30: Diseased, exhausted, nauseated, poisoned, staggered.
    DC 40: Frightened, blinded, paralyzed, stunned.
  • [2] Salves: DC65 to increase healing by 25 (7d8+40)
  • [2] Improved Alchemist's Fire: DC65 for +20' burst (full damage within 20', half 25', 1 30')
  • [2] Improved Acid Flasks:  DC65 for +20' burst (full damage within 20', half 25', 1 30')
  • [2] Improved Itching Powder: DC65 for +20', +8 DC (within 20' of impact, 25' reduced effect, Fort DC40)

Brew Stable Formulae:

A formulae’s cost of creation is 20 gp x the creator’s ranks in Craft (alchemy) x the complexity. At 15, that is 300gp.

CRAFTING TRADITIONAL ALCHEMY

Master Alchemist: Use GP value as SP value when calculating mundane alchemy progress (x10 progress)

Brew Stable Formulae: Formulae = 20gp x CraftAlchemy ranks x complexity

Skill Unlock: 5 - double craft check before multiplying results; 10 don't ruin materials; Result is how much complete each day in SP (x5 progress)

Craftsman: Craft mundane item in half normal time

Rapid Alchemy: Craft any alchemical item <150gp in half hour. If know improved formulae, reduce to 15 min. Add INT modifier to DC of these crafted items.

  • Alchemists' Fire: Craft DC20, 20gp, 15 min | 1d6 fire (+1d6 each turn after), ref DC30 to put out fire
  • Acid Flask: Craft DC 15, 10gp, 15 min | 1d6 acid, 5' take 1 acid damage
  • Itching Powder: Craft DC25, 60gp, 15 min | DC27 fort save (DC24 5' away) or -2 attack/saves/skills/ability rolls
  • Tanglefoot Bag: Craft DC25, 50gp, 30 min | -2 attack, -4 dex, Ref DC30 or glued to floor
  • Pepper Smoke Pellet: Craft DC25, 60gp. 30min | 5' smoke, Fort DC 27 or sickened 1 round
  • Liquid Ice: Craft DC25, 40gp, 30 min | 1d6 cold damage, adjacent take 1
  • Impact Foam: Craft DC25, 25gp, 30 min | lessens falling damage
  • Tangleburn Bag: Craft DC30, 150gp, 30 min | Tanglefoot + 1d6 fire, ref DC35 or catch fire

ALTERNATE CRAFTING

Take 10 check = 70 (doubled to 140 with skill unlock). That is DC25 alchemy item base progress x23 = 184gp progress.

@Arklytte So I'm about 80% of the way through my mechanics, and realized I'm using a 3PP champion class. Thought I would double-check before rebuilding that side of my character. Are mountebank and other 3PP champion classes off the table? (Couldn't be more OP than Sage 😉 ) I'm completely fine redoing it, realizing you were quite explicit about no 3PP material and not wanting to open up any doors you prefer remain closed, but it would obviously be my preferred option to stick with what I have going.

Class: All Spheres Classes and Archetypes are available, as are all archetypes for Vanilla classes (unless noted otherwise). Classes (on the main Spheres Wiki page) marked 3PP (Reaper; Necros, etc) are allowed, but Archetypes for base classes that are not allowed (ie the Epoch Walker Soulknife Archetype), are likewise not allowed.

You're good, my dude. 🙂

Oh snap! I didn't read carefully enough. Nice.

Alright @Arklytte, pending approval of custom tradition, the mundane sheet, and a very few small talent choices to make final decisions on, I'm going to consider Devlin the Eye-con submitted for your consideration.

Tradition is cool.  That is a whole lot of...interesting words all strung together.  😄

 

Good thing I'm such a geek too, otherwise it would have probably melted my brain.  😄 😄

Mythic Advancement and Rebuild Notes

Mythic Features

MYTHIC TIER 1

HP Bonus: 8 (4 for each path)

Ability Bonus: +2 Intelligence

Mythic Feat: Extra Path Ability -> Mythic Sphere KnowledgeAs a free action, you may spend 1 mythic power to acquire any base sphere (or any talent from a sphere you already know) for one minute. If a talent gained with this ability normally allows you to expend martial focus or a spell point to make its effect persist, you may do so even if you lose access to this talent before spending the resource. You may not have more than one active effect lasting 1 hour or more created through this ability at any given time.

Mythic Power: 7 (3 + 3xtier + 1 drawback)

Gifted Path Mastery: Mythic Sphere Mastery - BarrageYou gain one (blitz) talent you do not already have and, as a free action, can expend one mythic power to transform any ammunition you are holding into a different type of ammunition (as long as the new ammunition is not more expensive than the old ammunition or composed of a different special material). For example, you could transform a slow burn arrowEoG into a splintering arrowEoG. This transformation reverts back in one round. If you have the Sniper sphere, you may expend one mythic power when making a barrage to apply a (snipe) talent you know to the first attack in your barrage. (Gain Distracting Shot (blitz))

Gifted Path Ability: Speed of ThoughtOnce per encounter, as an immediate action, you may expend your martial focus and one use of mythic power to take a full round of actions. You may only do this after an opponent has declared an action (such as making an attack or casting a spell) and cannot regain your martial focus during this turn of actions.

Spheremaster Path Mastery: Mythic Sphere Mastery - TimeAs an immediate action, you may spend one mythic power to cast any (time) effect you know. You may apply any other talents you could normally use when using that talent. You may use this ability before resolving the previously announced action—for example, if an enemy attacks you, you could use this to activate the After Image talent to gain concealment against them.

In addition, you may spend a point of mythic power when using alter time. If you do, targets affected by your Slow ability are denied their Dexterity bonus to AC for as long as they are Slowed and targets affected by your Haste ability gain an additional move action each round.

Spheremaster Path Ability: Mythic Sphere Mastery - DestructionAs a free action, you may spend one mythic power and select a (blast type) talent you know that is part of a blast type group. For the next 24 hours, you have access to all talents from the blast type group the talent you selected belongs to. In addition to this effect, you also permanently gain two (blast shape) talents and can use those (blast shape) talents without paying their spell point cost three times per day. You may instead choose to designate one or two (blast shape) talents you already know for this reduced cost effect, replacing the reduction for one or both of the new blast shapes, respectively. (Gain Energy Strike, Energy Bomb)

 

Drawbacks

  • Radiant Power
  • Unfit for Power

Qualities

  • Flowing Power

Boons

  • Mythic Exemplar

  5. Remove Rogue Talent: Shadow Tools (surreal) — Add Combat Trick: Exemplar (boast)
