The Spirit Farewell Ritual provides a final interaction with a Target Spirit that did not survive resurrection. This Ritual Effect will only operate once ever on a specific Target Spirit. That Target has the final choice whether to return and may choose to ignore a successful casting of this Ritual. If the Ritual succeeds but the Target is not willing to return, the Spirit can still be the Target of another Spirit Farewell Ritual.

This Ritual Effect will last for ten minutes per point of Ritual Strength of the Ritual Caster, until the Target 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 point of Ritual Strength of the Caster from the death of the Target.

Upon successful casting, the Target Spirit will appear in the Circle, but it is restricted to the confines of the Circle. The Target will have forgotten every detail of the last twenty-four hours before its death. Additionally, a Target Spirit has no knowledge of any events since its death. If at any point the Circle of Power is destroyed, the Target Spirit dissipates.

No other Ritual can be cast on the Target Spirit during the duration of this Ritual Effect. As the Spirit has no true body, it may not use any skills or game abilities it might have previously possessed in life. The Target is also immune to any flaws or backlashes that might otherwise affect those in the Circle.

The Local Plot Committee should be notified in advance of the Ritual casting, so a proper experience may be supplied. 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 to cast as listed on the scroll.


This ritual can not be spellcrafted.
