Continuing from Stat Boosting Rituals, Part 1, … now looking at non permanent versions of the boosting rituals. The non-permanent versions of these spell’s are very limited as they will automatically become rituals if the level exceeds 50. That greatly limits the maximum effect possible for non-permanent non-ritual effects. For example:
The Gift of Reason, Encircled till Dusk
Creo Mentem 45, R: Touch, D: Sun, T: Circle
Permanently increases the affected targets Intelligence by 1 point, to no higher than 0.
(Base 30, +1 Touch, +2 Sun)
In an item the effect will end up as at least a level 55 effect:
The Blessing of Reason, Encircled for enchantment.
Creo Mentem 50, R: Touch, D: Concentration, T: Circle
Permanently increases the affected targets Intelligence by 1 point, to no higher than 2.
(Base 40, +1 Touch, +1 Concentration)
(+5 Device maintains concentration, +0 for one use per day)
The enchanted device write up could also be used as a special creature power. Familiars can grant powers and boosting their masters is reasonable.
