To the Adventures Gathered to address the Kullan Tarina

Here are a number of celestial services available from members of the Solar Guild of Wayside. Members each have some of their own rates. Those rates are frequently tailored by that Celestialist's abilities... If a large request were to consume a large portion of the magic they can manipulate in a 24hr period - then they equally ask for appropriate compensation... Also, there are some things which are simply beyond a specific Celestialist's abilities, or a different Celestialist is better suited due to their studies. It is not meant in any offense, just ensure you get the most out of whatever you ask for...

This missive will attempt to refresh some of the basics of things most popularly desired in detail but for those they are familiar with these services with are offering Wards, Spell Store Filling, Battle Magic Scrolls, Spellcrafting and Ritual Casting.

IF you want to prearrange any of these services please contact me and I can connect you with guild member to provide the service.

Services in Detail

...Celestial Wards...
Have 3 primary options.
1) cast from their memory.
2) charge *your* 9th circle Celestial Spell Store. (Can be done by the casters memory, or by their ability to manipulate High Celstial Magic). You must have your own Spellstore, and ensure that you use it correctly.
3) The celestialist will charge their own SpellStore, travel with you to where you need the ward built. Allow you to cast it from their spellstore and guide you in its correct usage.

Option 1, the caster will be invested in The created ward. Options 2 & 3, they will not be.

In the event you have a Ward created, you must either have a Celestialist who is invested in said Ward and has memorized "investment", or anyone whom is invested who can read Battle Magic Scrolls ((Read Magic)), can use them to invest the person. One investment Spell or Scroll is needed per additional investment.


...Filling a Spell Store...
A Celestialist whom you barter with who can muster 3 Tomes of Celestial High Magic on your behalf, can fill a Celestial Spell Store to the most it can hold, with any Celestial Spell. This can be 1 Prison (for a 9th circle Spell Store) or 9 Disarms (for 9th circle Spell store holding 9 first level spells). The Celestialist is not responsible for what you do with those spell(s) or their consequences.

...Battle Magic Scrolls...
In addition to normal merchants and merchant groups around the lands there are 3 who inscribe Battle Magic Scrolls. They are: Lady Eldandril, Aramis, and Shen - all of which are Masters of the craft. Aramis and Shen have a modest personal collection that may or may not be for sale as well as accept commissioned requests. Lady Eldandril tends to work by commissioned requests only.

...Celestial Formal Ritual Casting...
A Solar Formists, can cast rituals which are General or Celestial aspect, and once finished the final product will be of a Celestial Nature. Some rituals are fairly simple and potentially fast, some are not. Whenever you wish to pay for such a service it is not only their skill and mastery of said magics, but also time. Your average complicated, ritual or small Batch can take an average of 30 minutes from set up to break down ((and getting a marshal to adjudicate)). It is widely understood that sometimes last minute needs arise when we meet for market and rituals that weren't planned may be needed. Despite this specific situation, rituals are always best organized in advance. Not only can the rituals be performed at specific general time and place, the Formalist can balance your needs with the rest of the adventuring market.

There are a few different common methods of pricing.
1. Priced by individual ritual(s) being cast
2. Priced by difficulty of individual or batch of rituals
3. Priced by time required.

...Ritual materials...
The Formalist will have the things they need to call upon Celestial Magic. However, it is the general practice that you will have the Ritual Scroll, the needed reagents which are not expired, and the item or target of the ritual. Some Formalists have their own personal stockpile of various Ritual Scrolls and reagents, but the expectation is that such is provided by you. If you have a specific need that you can't fulfil, communicate with the Solar Formalist you are working with (or other adventurers) there is always someone you can barter/sell/buy/trade with.

...A Note for the Celestial Ritual of Vengence...
All of the adventuring Solar Formalists who "should" be the ones casting your Vengence all require advanced negotiation for said casting. In order to do "well" they largely need to plan their entire day around that 1 ritual. Thus, they may attempt to coordinate so only 1 person is casting them and delay casting them until most requests can be fulfilled the same day.

Of the Adventuring Solar Formalists, seek out:
Fredrick, Aramis, or DeSylvia
They can create the strongest Vengeance if you are patient and work with them. At last count, if they are able to build their day around casting that specific ritual, they could Manifest at least a Vengeance capable of instantly killing most things not a creature of power, and even some weaker creatures of power.

...A Note on Ritual Manipulation & Augmentation...
Ritual manipulation & augmentation is exactly as it seems. The ritual is successfully cast and does what it is supposed to do, and then also something extra. Some augmentation are specifically for the end result on your behalf. Some are specifically for the formalist who is casting the ritual. Most often, if a Solar Formalist decides to invoke augments that are for their benefit (not yours), there is no additional cost for said augmentation because that is their choice. At least usually, some exceptions do exist because some rituals have very bad negative effects if something were to unexpectedly wrong. Augmentations that lend to the fabrication of Celestial Ritual Magic, are done by request at a price negotiated. As with everything else, not all of the Solar Formalists can Manifest every commonly known manipulation. It is something that you should ask about and the Formalist will be able to explain what they can and can't offer you and at what cost. However things like Caster's insight & True Empowerment, the list of available casters shrinks considerably and for those hefty manipulations advanced arrangements are almost always required.

...Spellcrafting...
Some formal Rituals can be Spellcrafted. Doing so lends a minimal of the rituals effects, for a duration of 5 days. Those rituals which have triggered effects, they can usually be triggered once per day, on each of those days.

In some ways, Spellcrafting is significantly easier. For starters you need not be a Formalist, just well versed in the study if High Magic of the aspect. In some ways it is harder, because the reagents & effort of the caster is manifested "per" Spellcrafted ritual. As opposed to preparation of anything less difficult than 'x'. Spellcrafted effect on items are typically the best choice, as you are most likely to obtain the full benefit and duration. Spellcrafting which targets your body or Spirit, is taxing on both. If your body is destroyed, so too is the magic that enchanted it. Your spirit however is only strong enough to hold one Spellcrafted effect. Should you gain a second, or be the victim of some forceful magic that attaches to your spirit akin to a Spellcrafted effect... the old effect is replaced by the new effect. Spellcrafting maintains the aspect of the Ritual Scroll used, and doesn't change due to it being Spellcrafted as opposed to casted normally.

Is this a law in your lands? Does the way a Ward function when cast different in these lands than any other lands?
The reason I ask is that the caster of said Ward is NOT automatically invested in the Ward they cast. ONLY the people that are inside the structure when the Ward is cast will be considered invested in said Ward and be able to recognize people in and out at will. If you want to know how to do this, have the caster stand outside the structure that the person or persons want warded and cast your Ward spell at the structure as you, the caster stand outside of it.
 
Please come speak with me at least a few hours before Saturday logistics if you need any rituals cast. I am able to true empower any ritual you would need cast but know that my fees are not a flat rate should you need a very high amount of formal used. Rates must be negotiated and agreed upon before logistics.

I have never seen a casting from outside the structure. I have post this line of thought to a group of leaned individual to see if this is something more of a custom than a requirement. we do not know how magic in the Kullan Tarina may differently but the above options should work in any event if there are more restriction then you are familiar with. However, if you are correct I have then learned something new and thank you for sharing this use with me. (oog. link to question on the marshal forum.)

It seems like the council of a learned warlocks that I spoke with or quick in their reply. It does seem that it was more of a regional custom than a requirement. Thank you and your aid in proposing this new method an option.
