Time is a resource. Everyone knows it has to be managed. You mess with it at your peril. You can let it move fast or slowly but what you mustn't do is allow it to stop. On the Discworld time management is the job of the Monks of History, who store it and pump it from the places where it's wasted (like the underwater - how much time does a codfish need?) to places like cities, where there's never enough time. But the construction of the world's first truly accurate clock starts a race against, well, time for Lu Tze and his apprentice Lobsang Ludd. Because it will stop time. And when time stands still, everything stops with it. Then, there really is no future.

A temple in disrepair looms out of the mist. As you approach, you notice that the debris results not so much from ruin as disinterest. It appears that grandiose plans have disolved due to insufficient money, time or will.It seems a shame; the structure could have been so beautiful. A nagging thought crosses your mind. Could this be the work of Akrasia, the Goddess of Distraction? Many do not see her as a threat. After all, what is so wrong with having another drink, or listening to one more song, or playing one more hand of cards? Still, her agents have brought down empires, and her influence saps the life from communities until they fall, rotten within, to the slightest threat. Ah, but who cares? There is no doubt little of value or threat within. Might as well find a comfortable spot and turn in early tonight. There's always tomorrow for great deeds . . . Akrasia, Thief of Time, presents a series of vignettes that can be used individually or in total to enrich any fantasy campaign using the d20 game system. In it, you will find: - a description of the cult of Akrasia, its clerics, treasures and legends. - a new Prestige Class called the Distractor, and a detailed member of that class to bedevil your characters. - an almost abandoned shrine to the Goddess, with a haunting inhabitant. - a wandering servant of the Thief of Time, with a dangerous secret. - an inn beholden to the Lady of Lost Dreams, where adventurers can lose their way or gain a great boon. - four Akrasia devotees who plot to destroy a small town. - an active temple of The Delayer, with worshipers, creatures and mystical items. The Author: David Chart was born and raised in England, and currently lives in Cambridge, where he is successfully fighting off the need to get a real job. He has a Ph.D. in philosophy, which renders him unqualified for almost any serious labor. He has been roleplaying for many years, and his first game was Dungeons and Dragons. This is his first d20 System book, but probably not his last. No deadlines were harmed in the making of this product.

When we fail to achieve our goals, procrastination is often the culprit. But how exactly is procrastination to be understood? It has been described as imprudent, irrational, inconsistent, and even immoral, but there has been no sustained philosophical debate concerning the topic. This edited volume starts in on the task of integrating the problem of procrastination into philosophical inquiry. The focus is on exploring procrastination in relation to agency, rationality, and ethics-topics that philosophy is well-suited to address. Theoretically and empirically informed analyses are developed and applied with the aim of shedding light on a vexing practical problem that generates a great deal of frustration, regret, and harm. Some of the key questions that are addressed include the following: How can we analyze procrastination in a way that does justice to both its voluntary and its self-defeating dimensions? What kind of practical failing is procrastination? Is it a form of weakness of will? Is it the product of fragmented agency? Is it a vice? Given the nature of procrastination, what are the most promising coping strategies?
