Changeling: Captured Cantrip

Post by Rydath » Mon May 06, 2019 5:37 pm

(This ritual exists to duplicate complex uses of the ‘time’ realm in changeling canon.)
Ritual: Captured Cantrip
Prerequisites: Soothsay or Chronos Art, Rituals level 2
Ritual Components: string and a small trinket
Cost: 2 Glamour plus the cost of the Art
Purpose: To save a use of an art for later.
Expected Casting time: 2 Minutes.
Description:
The Ritualist or any assistant uses an Art power on the trinket.
The Ritualist wraps the trinket with string and spends 2 additional Glamour.
The Ritualist writes a 3x5 card with the text “Destroy to use <Power used on trinket> <target> <duration>, expires at end of game” and attaches it to the trinket.
At any time before the end of the current game event, the card can be torn in order to produce the power on the card. The target must be one that the original art could use, and the duration is that of the original power.

Notes, in no particular order:
- L3 ritual
- Captured art needs to appear on character sheet (not a fetish or Shared Strength)
- Limit to arts L1-3
- Caster may create as many talens per game as they have levels in rituals.
- Make text of card: “Ritual: Captured Cantrip. <caster name, player name, date cast>, expires end of game _____ (eg S6E2); Talen: <power used>” (Phrasing it this way clarifies the source of the talen, and rather than needing to detail any peculiarity the caster or art-user may have, the power captured is the default version.)

Made some significant changes based on initial suggestions. Gave it a limitation on what how often/ what level power can be used, which scales based on Ritual level, so i think it could still be level 2.
Ritual: Captured Cantrip
Prerequisites: Soothsay, Legerdemain, or Chronos Art, Rituals level 2
Ritual Components: string and a small trinket
Cost: 2 Glamour plus the cost of the Art
Purpose: To create a temporary Talen with one use of an Art.
Expected Casting time: 2 Minutes.
Description:
-The Caster or any assistant uses a Changeling power on a chosen trinket. That power must appear on their character sheet on a power tree; it cannot be a power granted by a fetish, shared strength, birthright, or other source.
-The Caster wraps the trinket with string, then spends 2 additional Glamour.
-The Caster writes a 3x5 card with the text “Ritual: Captured Cantrip. <caster name>, expires end of game _____ (eg S6E2); Talen: <power used><target><duration>” and attaches it to the trinket. The creation of this card is part of the ritual, so if a pre-made card is used, the ritualist must spend at last 30 seconds 'meditating' with it.

At any time before the end of the current game event, the Talen card can be torn in order to produce the attached power. The target must be one that the original art could use, and the duration is that of the original power or 1 hour (whichever is shorter).
For each level in the Rituals background the caster possesses, they may create a Talen containing an Art of that level or less each game. (eg: A caster with Rituals level 3 may create one temporary Talen containing a 1st level changeling power, a second Talen containing a level 1 or 2 power, and a third Talen containing a level 1, 2, or 3 power.)
