Domain Power: Kronostaff

As a visible sign of their ability, the channeler is granted an intricate and magical staff embodying Kronos’ mastery of time. The Kronostaff is a permanent magical construct bound to the channeler; its appearance is generally unique to its channeler, however these differences are only cosmetic - it is a construct of magic, and not "made" of any particular material that may provide additional bonuses. Its divine power may not benefit anyone else, and the staff disappears upon the channeler's death. Should it become lost or destroyed, it may be resummoned by performing a 10 minute ritual.

Counterattack: Each encounter begins with a pool of Rank charges, providing the channeler with +1 Parry for each available charge. This bonus is in addition to any Parry gained from Fighting Style: Staves. The charges may be spent to counter incoming physical attacks (melee or ranged) as a Reactive Action.

When attempting to counter an attack in this way, make an opposed attack roll vs the attacker's unmodified attack roll. Your attack roll gains a bonus equal to the amount of Parry you have. If your opposed roll is greater than the attack roll, you counter the attack preventing it from dealing damage. Attacks deflected in this way do not hit any Wards, reactive armors, or other defenses. On a successful Counter of a melee attack, immediately deal Non-Lethal Damage equal to the difference between the Counterattack roll and the attack.

A Kronomancer who delves into the Order Domain may use the Lawgiver's blessing to enhance their Kronostaff.
