The Spirit Farewell Ritual provides a final farewell to a Spirit that did not survive resurrection. This Ritual will only operate once ever on a given Spirit regardless of whether the Spirit chooses to stay or depart. No other Ritual can be cast on the Spirit during its return. As the Spirit has no true body, it may not use any skills or game abilities it might have previously possessed. Note that the Spirit is also immune to flaws or backlashes that might otherwise affect it. Be forewarned that the Spirit has the ultimate choice whether to return and may choose to ignore the successful casting of this Ritual.

This Ritual will last for ten minutes per Formal Magic level of the Ritual Caster, until the Spirit chooses to leave, or the duration of the Circle of Power expires, whichever comes first. The Ritual must be performed within one year per Formal Magic level of the Ritual Caster from the death of the Target Spirit.

Upon successful casting, the Spirit will appear in the circle but it is restricted to the confines of the Circle of Power in which the Ritual was cast. If at any point the Circle of Power is destroyed, the Spirit dissipates with it as well. Note that the Spirit will forget every detail of the last twenty-four hours before its death. Similarly a Spirit has no knowledge of any events since its death. If the Ritual Succeeds but the Target is NOT willing to return on that casting they can still be Spirit Farewelled again. A Spirit may only return on one Casting but has the right to choose which casting and situation that is.

Out Of Game:
Plot must be notified at least one hour before the casting of this Ritual. Once cast this Ritual CANNOT fail due to a die roll. If cast correctly it will always be performed successfully as long as no Automatic Backlash conditions are met (such as the Caster unable to see the scroll or someone entering the Circle of Power by unallowed means). The Caster may still be required to Roll, however, to see if they Flaw or Backlash the Ritual however any Flaws or Backlashes are treated as "Ritual Succeeds" in addition to any additional effects.

This Ritual requires 3 reagents as listed on the scroll.


This ritual can not be spellcrafted.
