Amulet of Shielding
The ceremony described herein, if successfully worked, will create an amulet that will provide three Physical Shields
to the wearer. Unlike crystals, which can be cumbersome and difficult to use
in combat, the amulet can be used if worn.
The ritual should
be performed during the day in a place that is deemed to be safe and well-protected.
The amulet (which can be any piece
of jewelry) must be crafted by a jewelcrafter of the highest skill. The amulet
must be crafted of silver and three pieces of crystal, infused with Essential Metal.
The amulet must then be washed with
a tincture of purest water, ground tortoise shell and the smallest Tal-Doril ground into dust and then dried in the sun. A person of virtue and true heart must then breathe upon the amulet to give it life.
The amulet must then be placed upon
the shield of a hero and the caster must meditate upon it for five minutes. He
then casts three Physical Shield spells upon the amulet.
With each casting he utters the phrase:
This spell I bind to protect in time of need.
The caster must then meditate upon
the amulet for another five minutes to keep the magic from fading.
The Ceremony is now complete.
