* JustOneSecondOutOfSync: A chronoscooter's "vanish" mode sends the 'scooter backwards in time at the same rate as the current forward flow, effectively putting it on the edge of existence until it is recalled.

Added DiffLines:

* CaptureAndReplicate: Demoreans can do a short-term shapeshift without capturing their model first, but for a shift that's expected to last any length of time the model needs to be stuffed in a sleep pod.

* UniversalDriversLicense: A time traveler from 1920's Chicago who learned to drive on a Model T Ford would use the same skill (unmodified) to drive any other road vehicle -- late 20th century semi, 30th century hovercraft, 45th century mecha ....

* GivingRadioToTheRomans: One renegade plot against the Time Corps consisted of dumping AlCapone in ancient Rome, on the (correct) assumption that he'd do ''something'' to seriously screw up the timeline.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverRecycleYourSchemes: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] for the Demoreans -- a failed plan is clearly imperfect, and ''shouldn't'' be repeated.

* AllDeathsFinal: One of the game's Laws of Time Travel. However, it only applies to time travelers; you can keep a historical figure from getting offed at the wrong time, but can't undo your partner's death.

Added DiffLines:

* RubberBandHistory: Time travelers ''can'' change the timestream, but the greater the change the greater the resistance from the timestream to the change. Blow away some random medieval peasant, and history will instantly change. [[HitlersTimeTravelExemptionAct Blow away Hitler?]] The resulting Significance Wave will move comparatively slowly through the timeline, changing events as it moves, like a tidal wave of history.
