The Spirit Lock Ritual is used to forge a magical connection between an object and a person with a Spirit. The Targeted item and person must both be in physical contact with the Ritual Caster within the Circle of Power during the casting of the Ritual. The item must be considered a possession of the Target Spirit and must be physically movable by that Spirit when in their normal body. The Ritual must be cast on the item and person simultaneously, though only one Ritual casting is required.

The item may be stored anywhere upon the person but may not be removed from contact with the body that contains the Spirit. While the item is locked, it cannot be separated from the person until the duration of the Spirit Lock expires or the person's Spirit suffers a final death.

While the Spirit is separated from a body, the item is intangible and invisible and will reform at the place of the Spirit's resurrection. If the Spirit's resurrection fails, the item accompanies the Spirit to the graveyards.

All properties given to the item via Formal Magic will only work for the person to whom it is Spirit Locked. The Spirit Locked item may not be transferred from the Spirit to another Spirit, and any attempt to do so will automatically fail.

This Ritual requires 5 reagents as listed on the scroll.


This ritual can not be spellcrafted.
