The high priests of %^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^Shirija%^RESET%^, known as Patriarchs or Matriarchs, are an aloof bunch, keeping mostly to themselves, and the priests of the other evil gods. Their main function is to perform rituals with those of the other dieties to the detriment of the world around them.

While they are all 'patriarchs', there is one High Patriarch, the prime of the order. This, er, lucky soul, while more favoured of %^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^Shirija%^RESET%^ herself, is distinctly less favoured by his lesser companions, any of whom may challenge him (%^BOLD%^challenge in circle%^RESET%^) when performing a ritual with him.

To conquer death you must... ***BZZTTT*** wrong answer! One cannot conquer
death! It is a hopeless, fruitless goal.  Of course, having realized this,
having whole-heartedly and completely given up all hope, the highest of the high
of the caste of Shirija gain special favor, and are more potent when using any
of her blessings.  This is absolutely essential when starting any ritual for
which Shirja is the primary patron, and helps a great deal for any of her lesser
spells too.

This simplest of rituals provides significant protection to its target from all
manner of good-intentioned creatures.  Of course, any protection granted by
Mordulak will protect from Mordulak's favorite injuries too.

This ritual's effects can be stacked.

Mordulak is, of course, prime in this ritual, and at least one other god must be
represented.

This ritual causes its target to die, instantly, upon its completion.  It is, of
course, easier to do on already weakened subjects.

god must be represented.

Reflecting for a while on the deeper philosophies of life, many high priests
have come to the realization that killing is inherently evil! This isn't such a
novel idea, of course, but few philosophers in the past have considered it a
desirable thing.

==============================================================================
This ritual causes immense amounts of pain and agony in the target.   Of course,
since this spell embodies Mordulak's ideal of torture, information is just not
an objective - the pain is an end in and of itself.  It will, incidentally, also
cause immeasurable damage too - though if that happens to kill them, that
doesn't necessarily mean their pain has ended.

Mordulak is, of course, the primary god for this ritual, and at least two other
gods must be represented.

A ritual circle is needed for any of the ritual circle spells.  It should have
one point for each of the evil gods.  Skill in the worship of each god is
helpful in drawing the place in the circle for that god.  High priests are even
more effective at drawing the place of their god, though not inordinately so;
basic worship ability is more important.

When an acolyte has been deemed worthy by the brotherhood of the malicious, he
or she may be given the position permanently.  They must already be an acolyte
for this ritual to work, and the god of whom they are an acolyte is prime in the
ritual.  At least three priests are needed to enact this ritual.

This ritual binds all potential enemies so that they can not move, nor really
fight in any way.  It will not, however, prevent spellcasting.

Lloth is prime in this ritual, and at least one other god must be represented.

==============================================================================
This ritual calls Talakh himself to incarnate, not in the harmer (who, we all
admit, is pretty wimpy), but in the target of the circle - hopefully someone
worth his time!

Talakh is prime in this ritual, and at least one other god must be represented.

With this ritual, a group of harmers can ask the gods to visit their will upon
the mortal world, generally to the detriment of the world at large, and the
benefit of the priests performing the ritual.  Their is no prime god for this
ritual - all the evil gods are importuned equally, and there must be a
representative for each god.
