Ceremony

Mystic Offerings are almost always done in some form of a Ritual and/or Ceremony. Learning powerful and difficult Rituals and Ceremonies may contribute to the energy reservoirs for Chi, Focus, Mana, and/or Synergy. Repetitious Chanting is used in ritual or ceremonial proceedings that concentrates the will of the participants in order to ensure against distraction and create a better chance of success. Along with this, the source of the ritual may be inscribed with the same repetition, as multiple Mystic Methodologies may be required to complete the ritual. Such texts are often written in Elderune. It is assumed that conducting (leading) a Ceremony requires the character to be Hale, or there may be penalties to the chance of success.

The primary focus of Ceremony: Ceremony usually amplifies the power, or distributes the cost of a specific spell effect. It is a huge component of Divine powers. Pomp: Many rituals and ceremonies are nothing more than superficial, pomp to inflate the importance of symbolic activities.

Ceremonial Treatment: Apply the trappings of Ceremony to a normally singular, non-ceremonial power.

SIGNIFICANT EXPERIENCE: Reference works and basic exposure alone may only provide the foundation for gaining a [mechanics based] advantage. To reflect the practice and experience to gain that benefit consistently, typically requires a cost in Character Points.

Greater Ceremony

Greater Rituals and Ceremonies are taxing on the participants. These greater versions maximize the amount of power which can be channeled through them to a dangerous level. This takes a toll on the participants, causing them to suffer a form of fatigue, malaise and/or Exhaustion. This often leaves them personally vulnerable right after completing greater functions, requiring protections of various sorts.

Ceremony Lores

Ceremonial Lores represent specific bodies of knowledge that allow characters familiar with ceremony practices of all kinds. This is required to be able to research and figure out a Ceremonial Treatment (if possible).
