Proposal - Ratkin: Whiskers of the Cautious

Post by Festindesang » Tue Feb 14, 2017 3:21 pm

Ritual Name: Whiskers of the Cautious
Requires: Shifter Rites, Rituals 1
Ritual Components: none

Level: 1

The caster of this ritual spends 2 minutes circling the ground outside, pawing and sniffing the air and surroundings.

The caster kneels in the dirt, raising head skyward, arms outstretched, asking for the spirits' aid:

"I, {Deed name}, call upon thee:

Let my whiskers, long and fine, feel the stir of the four winds.
Let the Wind of the East, the West, the South and the North combine together, and blowing through my whiskers, grant me the sights and sounds to see across the gauntlet. To do so that I may know what dangers await me, and so that I might be prepared to act. Let the four winds grant this boon, so I may survive and prosper, protecting kin and nest, from all that would seek to harem me and my own.

Spend 2 Gnosis.

The caster is now considered to be using the power of gauntlet sight for the next 24 hours. Cool down is 24 hours.

As a reminder, cooldown periods don't start until after the active period ends. A 24 hour effect with a 24 hour cooldown means you'll receive the effect for 24 hours, THEN you can't use it for 24 hours (so it will be usable for approximately half of game)

I'll look these over shortly - were these ItemMaker built?

...from all that would seek to harem me and my own.
I assume that should read "harm"?
The caster is now considered to be using the power of gauntlet sight for the next 24 hours.
Is there specific reason for the "considered to be using" phrasing rather than simply "effect: Gauntlet Sight, self, 24 hours"

Built in the itemmaker, this is a level 7 ritual. How do you justify it as level 1?

Admittedly I've never built a ritual that wasn't styled after something else, so I didn't even know there was a ritual maker. My first one passes the item maker, I'll have to figure this one out for sure. The reason for the wording was just how I'd seen it worded elsewhere, and the misspelling, was a misspelling.

Perhaps this is better?

Hey no worries! I'm just here to make sure the words used have the effect you intend. There's always the chance you were trying to fake an effect or something. :-)

A good ritual has both the flavor (what you've got in the first post) and the mechanics (what you've listed recently.)

That said, if this is an existing WoD canon ritual, we can look at ways to translate it effectively at the original level. Linky me?

-----

Here's a pass at combining the two:

Ritual Name: Whiskers of the Cautious
Level: 3
Requires: Shifter Rites, Rituals 3
Ritual Components: none
Cast time: 8 minutes

The caster of this ritual spends 7 minutes circling the ground outside, pawing and sniffing the air and surroundings.

The caster kneels in the dirt, raising head skyward, arms outstretched, asking for the spirits' aid:

"I, {Deed name}, call upon thee:

Let my whiskers, long and fine, feel the stir of the four winds.
Let the Wind of the East, the West, the South and the North combine together, and blowing through my whiskers, grant me the sights and sounds to see across the gauntlet. To do so that I may know what dangers await me, and so that I might be prepared to act. Let the four winds grant this boon, so I may survive and prosper, protecting kin and nest, from all that would seek to harem me and my own.

Spend 5 Gnosis.

Effect: Gauntlet Sight, self, 24 hours

Bumping this thread! Rules team, what needs to be updated for this ritual to be approved?

Do we have any word on Gauntlet sight rituals? Are they still under review?

I'm not certain what you're asking, can you re-phrase?

This specific ritual was approved with an altered level, cost, and cast time:
