Rituals

Traditionally Rituals are an expansion of Thaumaturgical Disciplines, but some vampires have created a series of ritae that any vampire with access to them can perform them. Many rituals have a particular Discipline or Path requirement. Many vampires will personalize the ritual to reflect their own personality and beliefs.

Contrition Ritus
Requirement: Auspex 4
Rtitual Level: 4
Effect Spend a Blood Point, hide Diablarie or similar marks in Aura for an hour.

Silent Speech Ritus
Requirement: Obfuscate 1
Rtitual Level: 1
Effect Each member of the ritual bites another member’s tongue out. Each must spend a blood point, to heal their tongue. Each participating member may speak with another for 30 minutes, during this time no one else can hear the vampires speaking, or see their mouths moving.

Viniculum Ritus
Effect Group is emotionally bonded with each-other, and immune to further blood bonding for one month.
Rtitual Level: 2

False Viniculum Ritus
Effect As Viniculum Ritus, but Ritual initiator may break from Viniculum at will.
Ritual Level: 3

*Venom Cutting *
Requirement: Fortitude 3
Ritual Level: 3
Effect The vampire spits their blood upon a sharpened object, usually a scarification knife, and cuts away their damaged flesh, cutting away the source of Aggravated damage. The vampire must spend 5 Blood Points over the course of the ritual, but may heal 1 point of their own Aggravated damage.

Ashen Crust
Requirement: Fortitude 4
Ritual Level: 4
Effect The vampire ritualistically burns their body slowly with a torch. The vampire must make a Courage roll with a -2 penalty. If they succeed, at the end of the Ritual they are covered in a light char, and they may treat damage from Fire as if it were lethal for one scene. This deals one point of Aggravated damage to the vampire that they cannot soak.

Cocatrice Ribcage
Requirement: Fortitude 1
Ritual Level: 1
Effect The vampire rubs their body down with lead, soot, saltpeter, or similar materials. At the end of the ritual the vampire treats damage from guns as Bashing instead of Lethal.

Excise Heart
Requirement: Fortitude 5
Ritual Level: 5
Effect The vampire ritualistically cuts out their own heart, and may hide it anywhere for one scene. Afterwhich the heart withers away, and a new one grows in the vampire’s chest. The vampire’s heart may still be staked, but it can also be hidden. If the heart is destroyed it deals 5 points of Aggravated damage to the vampire that they cannot soak.
This ritual deals one point of Aggravated damage to the vampire that they cannot soak.

The Quick and Dirty Embrace
Rtitual Level: 3
Effect This ritual is a means of embracing a vampire that is more feral monstrosity than human. Through this process a mortal is embraced as normal, then beat unconscious (often with a shovel) then buried alive (often with many others). The creature that arises is not so much a vampire as a horrific monster that is utterly loyal to their master.
