Day.
Enchant target. Over the next season the target will get flashes of inspiration on start to draw the region in which this ritual was cast. At the end of the season (sometimes longer) the target will have a fully drawn map of the location.

Day:
Overnight the target will be able to writea ritual text of one mastered ritual

PASSED (For now at least!)

NIGHT - 120

Wander the Mind and Blade

- Places an Aura of confusion and misdirection on a territory fogging the disciplined minds of troops causing them to loose focus and forget orders. All armies within the territory act at 2/3s forces.

WINTER - 120

Threshold of Ice and Wind (provisional)

- Calls down icy winds to surround a territory and sap the strength of any forces crossing the border. Any army that crosses said border in either direction will take 250 casualties.

Not mine, but someone else had it at the same time:

SUMMER - 120

-Calls down a tornado of fire within a territory. Any army within the territory will take 500 casualties. This also scorches the surrounding area.

-All 3 are curses (aka stackable Very Happy)

The tornado splits the dammage between armies right? I love that one. We may be able to disband an army with it.

Autumn:
Creates a bond with a territory which allows it to be targetted when not in it. Possibly a curse on the territory.

I think it was called Falling Star or something, which seems a bit irrelevant now there's meteor strikes going around!

Edit> It's worth comparing this to the Winter ritual that does similar http://www.profounddecisions.co.uk/empire-wiki/Ravenous_Tongue_of_Entropy

Edit 2> also shows how certain implements are easier to enchant...

There's meteor strikes? Already?

If you mean "Death from Above".. that's only a proposal. I don't know that anyone has spent a mana to try to actually project it.

There were two I believe:
Mag 150 - Call down a meteor to strike a fortification to deal 250 damage
Mag 180 - Call down a meteor to strike a fortification to deal 1000 damage

Both of those are interesting examples of the Law of Scale.

1000 damage isn't apparently all that much more difficult than 250 damage...

What realm were the meteor rituals?

...And kudos for Ioseph being the first contributor to this library from outside Endsmeet. Somehow I was expecting that to be Valerian...

Hands of the Ancient Makers

Based off http://www.profounddecisions.co.uk/empire-wiki/Hand_of_the_Maker

Autumn: This ritual targets the Sentinel Gate in Anvil and returns the common names, nation and possibly images of the people who crafted the Sentinel Gate.

Corvus did the 1000pt meteor, I did the 250pt one.

Re: Hands of the Ancient Makers - there's a guy in Phoenix Reach called Tacitus that's been looking into divining stuff around the regio and the gate. I'm not entirely sure how far he's got, but I think he was aiming at specific things like "how old is the regio/gate". He's not registered here, but worth coming to find him during uptime so you don't duplicate efforts such as skein of years etc.

Re: Birdcall - It's potentially ref intensive so they may not allow it. If they do, a cheaper version might just be getting a list of senders and their recipients, or a moderate version a copy of the letter rather than acting as gatekeeper for everyone's magic mail.

maybe, but winged messengers is already ref-intensive. maybe setting up an in-box in god might be easier.

Intercepting a message makes sense, copying it doesn't.
It isn't really ref intense to redirect all message to a single person, it's in fact much easier on the ref team.
Otherwise they have go searching for all the individual people.

Autumn: Increase the infrastructure rebuild rate in the territory. This will make the taxes in the territory increase towards their max faster.

Autumn: enchant a territory so that the taxes are collected more efficiently than normally possible thus increasing the max money collected from said territory

Perhaps you're right - copying is more night realm, spying on secrets kind of thing.

I wonder if they'll allow sending it on without any mana cost?

There's also the flip side of intercepting anything arriving into the field, rather than ones being sent out.

I am so bad at ritual names...
First one- Something about organisation, or work force. I see it like a community building a barn together.

Second: Masterful collection of tax. I see it like a really organised tax collector. I am sure you can come up with a better name.

On researching into magical items I did some prep before the grand conjunction on it.

Name: none
Realm: Autumn
Cost: I forget, about 12 I think
Effect: Descover all the things used to create the targetted magical item. Note this may find things which Eternals have used to create the item. Human hair, the scent of falure ect. Also its not possible to learn how to create such an item from the item itself. That information is simply not within the item.

I also have another idea.

We know that its possible to give a single target the mental effects of being in a nation. Change this to be a region enchant. We may be able to use it to convert some barbarians who are close to comming over.
