Most time mages focus on their spellcasting to control the battlefield, chronotriggers believe in their firearms, modified by chronomancy to win their battles.
The chronotrigger is an archetype of the time mage class.
Chronotriggers are proficient with all simple firearms.
A chronotrigger gains fewer MP than normal equal to the spell level he gains. For example, a time mage of 5th level would only have 4 MP excluding extra MP from Intelligence bonus.
A chronotrigger’s base attack bonus increases by one step (from 1/2 BAB to 3/4 BAB). Also increases chronotrigger’s hit dice from d6 to d8.
The chronotrigger gains precise shot as a bonus feat.
This ability replaces spell proficiency.
At 1st level, the chronotrigger gains Amateur Gunslinger and Gunsmithing as bonus feats. The chronotrigger uses his Intelligence modifier (minimum 1) in place of his Wisdom modifier when determining his maximum grit points and for any other abilities which use grit. Additionally, he also gains a battered gun identical to the one gained by the gunner.
This ability replaces temporal hiccup.
Bullet Time (Ex)
At 2nd level, a chronotrigger perceives time very slowly and is able to dodge most projectiles. Once per round when he would normally be hit with an attack from a ranged weapon, he may dodge it so that he takes no damage from it. The chronotrigger must be aware of the attack and not flat-footed. Attempting to dodge a ranged attack doesn’t count as an action. The chronotrigger can only dodge arrows, bolts, and other similar projectiles except bullets. In addition, the chronotrigger gains a +1 dodge bonus to AC while wearing no armor. Anything that causes the chronotrigger to lose his Dexterity bonus to AC also causes the chronotrigger to lose this dodge bonus. This bonus increases by +1 for every four levels beyond 2nd level (to a maximum of +5 at 18th level).
This ability replaces ahead of time.
Daring Deeds (Ex)
At 3rd level, a chronotrigger gains Rapid Reload as a bonus feat. The chronotrigger must choose a firearm to associate with this feat. Additionally, the chronotrigger can select one additional 1st-level gunner deed which he can use with his Amateur Gunslinger feat.

This ability replaces foretell.
