Weekly Wonders: Rituals of the Void
Strange Magic From Beyond the Stars
Occult rituals, from Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Occult Adventures, bring magic to the masses, with lengthy and difficult to perform magical rites which can be performed even by non-spellcasters, but which come with a cost, as well as the risk for terrible backlash to occur for those who meddle in things they do not understand. Unlike traditional spells, only a handful of occult rituals made it into that book however, which begs the question of what other strange and unknowable rituals might be lurking about in obscure tomes lost to history and memory. Tomes like this one.
This book presents a collection of 10 brand new occult rituals for use in your game, all of which are thematically linked to the void of space, astral bodies like stars and planets, and bridging the gap between them. Presented in the guise of a fictitious tome that player characters might stumble across, the book also includes a flavorful introductory section that can be read aloud or handed out to players, and suggestions for how to incorporate the book into your game. The rituals in this book allow players (or nefarious NPCs) to:
- Commune with creatures on the far side of the cosmos…or create gates to travel to them in person.
- Create brand new stars in the night sky, possibly complete with planets, and even life.
- Fling your foes temporarily into the black emptiness of the void.
- Summon a massive meteor strike that can alter the very course of life on the planet.
And much, much more!
