While powerful, this Discipline can also be straining to use. The primary principle behind Temporis is that it is an application of the same magical energies that keep the vampire's body in eternal stasis, reflected outside the user. Since these energies are required to maintain a vampire's existence, use of Temporis is always a risky proposition.
A vampire who uses these powers foolishly, experiences a failure of the Blood, or calls upon power beyond his physical ability to withstand may find parts of his own body withered away, or even meet Final Death as his corpse, no longer capable of containing his soul, crumbles to dust.
The True Brujah are not prone to teach Temporis to anyone else, as doing so would weaken one of their few advantages.

The original version of Temporis, released in Dirty Secrets of the Black Hand, was infamously regarded as unbalanced; even White Wolf themselves, in Vampire Players Guide Second Edition, referred to the original discipline as "uber-twink."
Revised Edition greatly curtailed the discipline, adding blood point costs, closing loopholes, changing many attribute rolls to require Stamina, and inflicting aggravated damage to the discipline-using vampire on botches or even automatically on use of certain high-level powers. It also provided the optional "Temporal Exclusion" rule; preventing characters from learning both Temporis and Celerity.
