Part 1: Introduction to Timescape

Part 2: The Second Plane: Chaos

Part 3: The Third Plane: Law


Timescape is a Vox Draconis setting in which the Rifts have been permanently torn open, and wizards have gained knowledge of chronomagic, or time magic. This knowledge is a threat and also an aid to the people of Vox Draconis. This manual will illustrate 2 new planes and their denizens, equipment lists, and other interesting accessories for Vox Draconis Timescape campaigns. You must own a copy of the Vox Draconis Basic Rules.


Section A: Description

The Plane of Chaos is an exact copy of Vox Draconis's Plane of Law, except it is dark and evil. All creatures that live on this plane are evil and will destroy all intruders from the Plane of Law. All of the monsters of Vox Draconis's Neutral Zone originated from this plane.

Section A: Description

The Plane of Law is a plane of complete order. It is very difficult for inhabitants of other planes to live here, because here no one has different thoughts. No monsters live here, only humanoid creatures called Robots that cannot think for themselves. There is no day or night, just an eternal darkness. This plane is considered more dangerous than any other plane, except the Plane of Evil.

Section B: New Monster List

There aren't any monsters in the Plane of Law.

Section C: Equipment List

No new equipment.

Section D: New Races

Robot: Robots controlled by players are assumed to have escaped the Plane of Law and gained an independent mind. They have a +5 to Perception, but they are completely blind, since they don't even have eyes. They use their other senses at superhuman levels. Robots have black skin and are bald. They tend to become good-aligned when they leave the Plane of Law, and try to right wrongs.

There are no new classes from the Plane of Law.
