Time mages don’t use blood, spirit or mana to power their spells. They burn time. In exchange for casting all manner of spells time pauses at a location. With preparation a mage can recite a spell that specifies the location. Without preparation, time is paused around the casting mage. Time mages cannot manipulate time directly as the focus of a spell; the temporal results are the payment not the effect. The power of a spell fuelled by time is limited by the mage’s ability to channel the used energy.
