Time Roach

Time roach.png

This hideous insect seems perfectly still; even when walking there are no intermediate motions.

Because of their tendency to show up and wreak havoc when people cast rewind, the ignorant sometimes claim that Time Roaches are some sort of divine punishment for interfering with the natural order of time. The more astute recognize that a few Time Roaches can be very helpful when attempting to alter the past.

Time Roaches are not particularly smart, and can only speak Bug languages.

The time roach's unarmed attacks deal 1d6+4 damage (Muscle included), and it can use its vicious mandibles as a "hand".

It cannot see or hear, but it has a thermosympathetic sense.

When someone begins a [ time ] effect, the Time Roach can detect and pinpoint the initiator if they are sufficiently close: 50 meters for common spells and non-spell effects, 200 meters for elite spells, 800 meters for paragon spells, and 3200 meters for legend spells.

The Time Roach counts as a person capable of casting rewind for effects that care, even though it can't actually cast rewind.

Because it actually stops time whenever it moves, it can move over liquids and surfaces that cannot support its weight, although it falls if it ends an action on such a surface.
