Ritualist

While some learn the art of ritual casting through rigorous study, other gifted individuals may find that a combination of natural talent and luck gives them surprising skill at performing rituals, whether they want that power or not.

Ritualist Dedication Feat 4

Uncommon Archetype Dedication

Prerequisite(s) expert in Arcana, Nature, Occultism, or Religion

You have begun to master the difficult art of casting rituals.

You gain a +2 circumstance bonus to all primary checks to perform a ritual. You learn two uncommon rituals with a level no higher than half your level; you must meet all prerequisites for casting the ritual to choose it. At 8th level and every 4 levels thereafter, you learn another uncommon ritual with a level no higher than half your level and for which you meet the prerequisites. You can cast these as the primary caster, but you can’t teach them to anyone else or allow someone else to serve as primary caster unless they know the ritual as well.

Special You can’t select another dedication feat until you’ve gained two other feats from the ritualist archetype. If you retrain out of this feat, you lose the rituals learned from it.

Prerequisite(s) Ritualist Dedication

You can perform two aspects of a ritual yourself. When you cast a ritual, you can reduce the number of secondary casters by 1. When you do, you must fulfill any requirements for the secondary caster, and you attempt the secondary check normally performed by that secondary caster. You can’t replace a secondary caster who is the target of the spell (as in the atone ritual).

Archetype

You can cover for a secondary caster’s error. If you are the primary caster, after rolling all the secondary checks, choose one check on which the secondary caster rolled a failure or critical failure, and treat the result as one degree of success better.

Archetype

Prerequisite(s) Efficient Rituals

You can perform rituals in only a fraction of the usual time. If a ritual has a casting time measured in days, you can cast it in an equal number of hours. If this results in a ritual longer than 8 hours, you split the ritual between multiple days, as normal for a ritual.
