Anonymous said:Exactly what kindof effects can be accomplished by the ritual magic? I take it it cannot be cast during combat? That it takes a few hours to cast, and results in things likke stat drain of tagets?
Rituals can do pretty much anything normal D&D spells can..you basically build your rituals based on what you need it to do selecting the parameters for the rituals as you move through the ritual check process.
The minimum base time for a ritual to be cast is 10 minutes though generally they take much longer. You can rush a ritual in order to reduce the casting time though.
Stat drains are not garunteed, as I pointed out above they are only possible if you failt to successfully cast the rituals as you get backlash.. and the effects of backlash vary with just how bad you failed.
