Description: You temporarily draw out the soul of one dead creature, materializing it as a ghost-like apparition that vanishes in bright light. The apparition resembles how the creature looked just before death, and may include some of the wounds or ailments that caused its downfall. The apparition does not speak or react to those present, but its spirit will react in unseen ways. When you complete the ritual, divide your check by 6 to determine how many of the following details you can gleam about the soul:

  • Disposition: Learn how the creature felt towards the assembled company, including complex emotions such as jealousy, forgiveness, pride, etc. If there are strong conflicting attitudes towards various members of the company present, the spirit will indicate it is conflicted.

  • Date of Death: Learn the appropriate unit of measure to determine a being's death - hours, days, weeks, months, or years.
  • Cause of Death: This will describe the effect that caused its death, but not the source. For example, you may learn that Feyden was slain by a sword, but not who was holding onto the blade or the make of the weapon itself.
  • Place of Death: Get a vague description of the place of death of the creature, such as a grassy field, a castle chamber, or in a dark cave.
  • Alignment: Learn the creature's general alignment, based on how it viewed its own actions. This may produce some cruel figures who inwardly feel good, and honourable figures who obsess with their own perceived evilness.

If the creature is alive, has its soul trapped, or is animated as an undead, this ritual will fail and components are expended.

Name: Raise Dead

Level: 8

Market Price: 2000Gp

Key Skill: Religion

Description: To perform Raise Dead, you must have at least half of the corpse of a creature that died no more than 30 days ago. The subject returns to life as if he or she had taken an extended rest. The subject is freed of any temporary conditions suffered at death, but permanent conditions remain. You can't restore to life a creature that died of old age or has already been restored by the Raise Dead ritual. Additionally, the subject's soul must be free and willing to return to life. Some magical effects trap the soul and thus prevent Raise Dead from working, and the gods can intervene to prevent a soul from journeying back to the realm of the living.

Name: Teleportation

Level: 8

Time: 1 hour

General Cost: 200 Gp of Alchemic Dust

Market Price: 800 Gp

Key Skill: Arcana

Description: You create a shortcut across the fabric of the world, moving yourself to the location of a permanent teleportation circle somewhere else on the same plane. Completing the ritual instantly moves you to the other location, with no movement required or possible. As part of performing the ritual, you sketch out a 10-foot-diameter circle in various rare chalks and inks. This temporary teleportation circle must exactly match the permanent teleportation circle at your destination. It disappears at the end of the portal’s duration. The portal is 10 feet tall and blocks line of sight. 

At the completion of this ritual, make an Arcana check. The result determines any teleportation sickness you experience:

  • 0-4: Knocked unconscious, and must spend an extended rest regaining energy.
  • 5-9: Until the end of the next extended rest, roll twice for all d20 rolls and take the lower result.
  • 10-16: Until the end of the next extended rest, take a -2 penalty to all skill checks.
  • 17-23: Until the end of the next extended rest, take a -1 penalty to all skill checks.
  • 26+: No effect.

You can use a permanent teleportation circle as the origin point of this ritual, making minor temporary modifications as part of the ritual. Doing this reduces the cast time to 10 minutes and grants you a +5 bonus to your Arcana check.

Unlike with portals, teleportation does not permit the caster a chance to observe the surroundings of their destination prior to teleportation.  

You can use Teleport to any permanent teleportation circle whose sequence of sigils you know. When you learn this ritual, your DM will tell you at least two such sequences. In your travels and research, you’ll undoubtedly learn more. Permanent teleportation circles might be found in mage guilds, valuable libraries, or in the ruins of old Ghidovia.

This ritual can take you anywhere in the world, but it can’t take you to other planes. Sufficiently powerful warding magic, such as the Forbiddance ritual, can block a teleportation ritual. If the location is warded in such a manner, you learn that just before you finish casting the ritual, so you can interrupt the ritual and not expend any components.

Level 9 Edit

Name: Seek Magic

Level: 9

Time: 1 hour

General Cost: 5Gp of Alchemic Dust

Focus: A gemstone worth at least 1000Gp

Market Price: 800Gp

Description: You hold the gemstone gently and allow it to be tugged in the direction of a nearby powerful source of magic. When you cast this ritual, determine the type of magic sought and the radius of the search:

  • Type: Items, Mana Crystals, Rituals (ongoing), Magical Creatures. Creatures that wish to remain hidden make an opposed Arcana test to remain hidden.
  • Radius: Narrow tests search an area equal to twice the caster's Arcana result. Wide tests search all sources within 200m per point of the caster's result, but does not give as precise an estimate.

Forbiddance or other warding rituals will cause this ritual to skip the warded sources of magic but will not cause the ritual to fail and will thus not alert the caster to the presence of those wards unless their Arcana Test beats the Forbiddance DC by 10 or more.

It allows for information that your character does not have direct exposure to (such as information on other cultures you have never heard of, or the geography of a region you have never visited), but not secrets (such as battle plans, a guild password, or the resting place of Muat Rafil.

Normal players are not able to control the skeletons, and they will instead act chaotically or follow the command of powerful necromancers nearby. The skeleton may be equipped with weapons but does not gain access to any of the abilities or powers possessed by its living predecessor.

Make an Arcana test with a -1 penalty per creature of -5 per origin. The DC for a strength test to pass through the Arcane barrier is 10 higher than your result. Note that creatures may take 20 to defeat the barrier or help each other.  

If you spend 8 hours and five times the component costs, the barrier is permanent and may take 20 to determine the DC to break it.

Name: Counterspell

Market Price: 10 000 Gp

If you wish to keep this counterspell secret from the caster, take an additional -5 penalty, otherwise the caster will know their ritual has been countered: 

  • 0-4: The counterspell backfires and you take damage equal to the caster's level. 
  • 5-9: Draw. The effect remains, but no adverse effects occur.  
  • 10-14: Disruption. The ritual ceases to make any new actions for one minute, but current effects are not reversed.

Name: Linked Portal 

Level: 14

Time: 1 hour

General Cost: 1000 Gp of Alchemic Dust

Market Price: 4000 Gp

Key Skill: Arcana

Description: You create a shortcut across the fabric of the world, linking your location with a permanent teleportation circle somewhere else on the same plane. With a step, you can move from one circle to the other. As part of performing the ritual, you must sketch out a 10-foot-diameter circle in various rare chalks and inks. This temporary teleportation circle must exactly match the permanent teleportation circle at your destination. It disappears at the end of the portal’s duration. The portal is 10 feet tall and blocks line of sight. 

At the completion of this ritual, make an Arcana check. The result determines the duration that the portal remains open:

  • 5-9: 2 rounds.
  • 10-17: 3 rounds.
  • 18-24: 4 rounds.
  • 25+: 5 rounds.

You can use a permanent teleportation circle as the origin point of this ritual, making minor temporary modifications as part of the ritual. Doing this reduces the cast time to 10 minutes and grants you a +5 bonus to your Arcana check.

While the portal is open, any creature that enters the circle at the origin point instantly appears at the other location, along with anything the creature holds or carries. The creature can even finish the rest of its move. Only eight creatures can enter through the portal per round. 

Anyone standing in the vicinity of either end of the portal can see a haze-infused vision of the teleportation circle at the other end of the connection, as well as the environment 12 squares beyond it. Effectively, everything at the destination within this area of visibility has concealment, and the area beyond is completely fogged out (Naturally, portals that last longer give you a better opportunity to study the place you’re going to before you step into the circle). Environmental effects at one end of the connection don’t affect the other end.

You can use Linked Portal to any permanent teleportation circle whose sequence of sigils you know. When you learn this ritual, your DM will tell you at least two such sequences. In your travels and research, you’ll undoubtedly learn more. Permanent teleportation circles might be found in mage guilds, valuable libraries, or in the ruins of old Ghidovia.

This ritual can take you anywhere in the world, but it can’t take you to other planes. Sufficiently powerful warding magic, such as the Forbiddance ritual, can block a teleportation ritual. If the location is warded in such a manner, you learn that just before you finish casting the ritual, so you can interrupt the ritual and not expend any components.

You may ask the being question pertaining to a specific action you wish to undertake that you have not yet begun, or about general knowledge and advice. The answers to your questions need not be known by any creature, living or dead. The ritual cannot answer questions about the future pertaining to events beyond the next 7 days. After that, the skein of possibilities is too indistinct to gain useful information.  

The guidance from the being is accurate to the best of their knowledge, but great heroes or other gods are capable of thwarting fate, at least for a time. If the ritual reveals that a course of action is "certain doom" you should realize that nothing is truly certain until it happens. In addition, the entity assumes that you will act on its guidance to the letter and with no hesitation. If you do not follow their guidance directly, the circumstances under which the activity occurs will change and their answer may no longer be valid.  

You may ask a number of questions based on your Religion check result, with a -5 penalty if the being is unfriendly, or +5 if it is friendly:  

  • 0: None  
  • 1-9: Two  
  • 10-19: Three  
  • 21-26: Four  
  • 27-29: Five  
  • 30-32: Six  
  • 33+: Seven  

Level 27 Edit

Name: Entomb

Level: 27

Time: 12 hours.

General Cost: 100 Gp per heroic level of the target, 1000 per paragon level of the target, and 10 000 per epic level of the target. The caster additionally gives up one permanent healing surge.

Focus: One non-magical item.

Market Price: 200 000 Gp

Key Skill: Arcana, Religion, or Nature

Description: You must target one helpless creature who remains within the centre of a ritual circle for the duration of this ritual. After the ritual is completed, the creature's body and soul vanish as they are trapped within the focus. While trapped, they are aware of their surroundings but cannot communicate directly unless allowed by you when you complete the ritual. They can never be freed but can also never die from old age, although you may specify any number of conditions which allow them to gain freedom (including permission from the caster). If the creature is somehow freed, it reappears with its body and all possessions exactly as it was when it was trapped initially.  

Once this is enchanted, the non-magical item becomes an artifact of level equal to the creature and will be assigned properties befitting that creature's power and will. Disenchant Magic Item will have no effect on this artifact. The item itself being destroyed will free the creature if the conditions were met.  

The creature can break free of this ritual despite your wishes if another character learns this ritual and casts it on the artifact. If such an event occurs the DC to free the creature is equal to an Arcana test you make upon completing the ritual. 

Level 30 Edit

Name: True Portal

Level: 30

Time: 1 hour

General Cost: 50 000 Gp of Alchemic dust

Market Price: 425 000 Gp

Key Skill: Arcana

Description: This ritual works the same as Linked Portal, except that all DCs are increased by 13 and as noted here.  

You are not limited to teleporting to places you've seen or that have permanent teleportation circles. However, when you perform the ritual, you must describe your intended destination clearly. The magic of the ritual interprets your intended destination in the most literal way possible. If your description is insufficient to determine a specific destination, the ritual fails but no components are expended. If your description causes the portal to lead you somewhere you did not intend, the ritual still functions and components are expended.  

If the destination is blocked by a warding ritual such as Forbiddance, the ritual opens the destination portal at a point along the ward's boundary. You can see through the portal before you enter, and you don't have to step through if you don't want to.  

You may use a teleportation circle as the origin point of this ritual, making minor modifications as part of the ritual. Using a teleportation circle reduces the ritual's component cost to 10 000 Gp and grants a +5 bonus to your Arcana check.
