Q: Dear Sage
Can the timeless body power be dispelled?
--Mark

A: Yes.

The timeless body power renders you invulnerable to all attacks and powers. However, the power doesn’t protect itself, nor does it protect any other effects currently active on you.

Dispel psionics (or dispel magic), even if targeting you specifically, isn’t affecting you—it’s affecting the ongoing powers or spells active on you. Thus, it is unaffected by the protection granted by timeless body.

Since timeless body doesn’t prevent characters from targeting you with attacks or powers (just from affecting you with them), dispel psionics can dispel a timeless body effect (or any other effects on a character protected by timeless body).

About the Author
The Sage is a mammal classified in the bear family, Ursidae, native to central and southern China. Debate continues as to whether he is truly a bear or more related to the raccoon rather than the bear, or perhaps in a family of his own. When not eating bamboo and answering rules questions, he works under the nom de plume of Andy Collins as an RPG developer in Wizards of the Coast R&D, where his development credits include Complete Mage, Dragon Magic, and the Player's Handbook v.3.5. He can be easily recognized by his large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, ears and on his rotund body.
