A to Z: Preemptive strike

This post is designated Open Gaming Content according to the Open Gaming License.

Preemptive Strike
Available to: Magic-users (chronomancers)
Level: 5
Duration: 1 hour per level
Range: 0

This time warping spell gives the caster a chance to wreak vengeance on those who attack him even before they get the chance to do so. When the caster, so protected, is attacked during the spell's duration, he gains an additional combat round in which he can perform some extra action. This additional round occurs before the first normal round of the battle, giving the caster a chance to attack his enemies, or to protect himself, before anyone else can act. The caster does not even need to be aware of the attack for the spell to function, as time is immediately warped, granting him an additional moment to take action.

The time warping effect works only once during the spell's duration -- once it has been triggered the spell ends.
