Harvest Haunt for Blood Talen (2)
Prerequisites: Necromancy, Rituals level 2
Base Cost: 2 blood
Level: 2
Purpose: Create a Blood Talen
Expected Cast time: 5 minutes
Cooldown: No more than once per day
Requires: Chalk or salt, An object made from a dead animal (bones/ fur/ leather), an active haunt or pathos node.

Description:
You must sit within 5 feet of a haunt, citadel, or other pathos node for the duration of the ritual

Prepare Your necromantic focus.

Using chalk or salt, Draw a circle directly in front of or next to the haunt or pathos node. Place the dead object to become a talen within the circle. Speak the following incantation:

“In cold blood killed,
Indecently fashioned,
This Corpse is refilled,
With Blood and Passion.”

Spend the remainder of the ritual using your necromantic focus to pantomime attacking the node, and scooping its power into the circle with the talen. At the end of the ritual, you must attach an index card to the node with the text '<date>,<time> - This node is disabled and unable to provide energy for 8 hours.’ Writing this card is part of the ritual. If you use a pre-printed card, you must spend 30 seconds meditating on it.

If the ritual is completed, turn in a checkout card that includes the following information: "<name>, <date>, 'Ritual: Harvest Haunt', 'talen: 3 blood'."

A ritualist may cast only one type of energy-talen-creation ritual per day, regardless of rituals known.

At your next check-in, you will be given a Blood Talen for each card turned in. A Blood Talen created by this ritual is consumable to replenish 3 Blood Pool. Attach the Blood Talen tag to the dead object used in the ritual.

If you're going to require index cards, require a pen. Otherwise just skip and let the requirement be implied.

" ‘this node is disabled, unable to provide energy for 8 hours.’ Along with the creation time of the card."
Better phrasing: '<date>,<time> - This node is disabled and unable to provide energy for 8 hours.'

Maybe add "Writing the card is part of the ritual. If printed ahead of time caster should meditate for 30 seconds." or similar?

"turn in a card to check-out, saying ‘Talen, 3 blood created for next check-in’."
The text of the card should either be complete, or not detailed. (check out cards should always include name, date, and ritual in addition to other info, like the note about the talen. So either "turn in a checkout card." or "turn in a checkout card that includes the following: <name>, <date>, 'Ritual: Harvest Haunt', 'talen: 3 blood'."

"You may only turn in up to 1 talen card of any source per game day. "
While it's been repeatedly discussed, this has not been implemented.

This phrasing has been added to the already approved energy-talen rituals, and should be included here:

A ritualist may cast only one type of energy-talen-creation ritual per day, regardless of rituals known.
