New Thaumaturgy Rituals

Son of the Devil (Level 5 Thaumaturgy Ritual)

The workings of this sick blood magic are thusly so:

Using the following conditions the caster can revive the ability to produce sperm for short periods of time, thusly being able to reproduce. The results of this ritual are often, if not always, horrific and disastrous.

The Vampire wishing to enact this ritual must obtain a variety of material components:
A large fresh and healthy sperm sample.
Relative items of fertility and aphrodisiac properties
A borderline overdose amount of cocaine
A dosage of Viagra
Fresh Blood from a newly Born Child
10 Blood Points from the Caster.

The following procedures are used to create a blood potion known as Damien's Spirit that the vampire must drink before impregnating a viable target.

Damien's Spirit must be prepared and created in a room filled with items reminding the Vampire of Humanity and life.

Step One
The Vampire must prepare a large cauldron heated by fire, the temperature is applied to keep the potion warm (Somewhere near body temperature).
10 of the Vampires Blood pool must be emptied into the cauldron.

Step Two
At least two food stuffs with the properties of aphrodisiac's need to be ground into a paste within the aura of an item of fertility (various cultures have a variety of objects that represent fertility).
The product of this step should then be placed into the cauldron and thoroughly stirred, the unfinished concoction will thusly emit a steam that should be allowed to bathe the vampire.

Step Three
The Dosage of Viagra should be crushed using a marble pestle and mortar and the
powdered cocaine should be applied to the drug. The two combined must be ground until they imitate a sugar like substance then the sperm sample must also be applied.
Empty the contents of the pestle into the cauldron.

Step Four
A newly born child must have its one point of blood drained from the jugular into the cauldron. With its blood goes its essence and the formula is completed. (Those Thaumaturges with spirit Thaumaturgy may wish to use Spirit Eyes as such a sacrifice often causes anger in the ethereal realm.)

Step Five
The rather unpalatable mixture will assume a pure blood form, which must be drunk within a given time of the ritual being completed.
*The Vampire must roll Wits+Occult Difficulty 8, the number of successes determines the longevity of the potion.

Botch The potion lasted less than a second and is useful
One Success The potion lasts one minute
Two Successes 3 minutes
Three Successes 10 minutes
Four Successes 30 minutes
Five+ Successes 1 Hour (This is the maximum longevity of the potion)


After the potion is drunk the Vampire must make a soak roll (difficulty 7) against 7 dice damage. The Vampire will be enshrouded by pain and the potion shall course through it's veins causing it's muscles to convulse and seize for anywhere up to an hour. After this time the Vampire is imbued with the reverse of his pain and is overcome with passion and euphoria. This feeling will last for a number of hours dependent upon the number of dots the vampire has in stamina (1 for 1) and fortitude (2 for 1). For the aforementioned time the Vampire has the ability to make any female of the mortal equivalent species pregnant although the pregnancy will not be as if it was mortal.
(Female menstrual cycle play in full effect when trying to bring on pregnancy.)
The vampire will feel the orgasm and enjoy sexual intercourse for the first time since it's embrace but after the ritual is over the vampire will be unable to heal any wounds for 10 days minus it's Stamina+Fortutude.
The Ritual ends with an overwhelming feeling of depression that fades with the inability to heal wounds. If the subject should fall pregnant then the consequences should by left to the discretion of the Storyteller.

Reflection of Stubborn Eyes (Level 4 Thaumaturgy Ritual)

This Ritual can be used upon the caster or a victim/patient at a higher difficulty. The basic premise of this ritual is the resistance of the Dominate discipline. The ritual requires several components and considerable time and concentration.

The caster will need to acquire the following short list of components:
A substantially sized mirror or reflective surface (which must be solid i.e. the surface of a liquid could not be used).
Freshly removed eyes from a human victim.
A reasonable quantity of opaque liquid with staining properties, (Indian Ink is ideal).
3 points of blood from a vessel born to this world without the power of sight.
A large candle.

Step One
The first procedure of this ritual is to prepare a potion known as 'Blindmans Blood'; this can be achieved in the following manner. A cauldron needs to be prepared for the components heated at body temperature via a naked flame. Once the cauldron is scorched at the correct temperature the blood from the blind needs to be placed into the cauldron along with the selected opaque liquid, the freshly cut eyes and 10 blood points of blood from the caster or victim. This concoction needs to be heated until it achieves mortal human body temperature. When the cauldron starts to curdle its contents the liquid needs to be contained in an insulated vial.
System
The vampire must make an Int + Brewing* roll (Difficulty 7 if prepared for caster, Difficulty 10 if prepared for someone else) the number of success' determines the potency of the 'Blindmans Blood' and the level of dominate that can be resisted.

Number of Successes Level of Resistance
1-2 1
3 2
4 3
5 4
(+1) (+1)
Five+ Successes 1 Hour (This is the maximum longevity of the potion)

Regardless of the above the Level of resistance cannot exceed the Level of the vampires highest Thaumaturgical path.

Step Two
The second procedure is one of mental strengthening and conjuration of the resistance to Dominate. The caster needs to set himself a seat before the reflective surface. Then the candle needs to be set at eye level between the casters position and the reflective surface. The caster then needs to prepare himself for a lengthy ordeal. The candle must be lit and the caster must consume the 'Blindmans Blood'. The consumption of such a liquid can often cause internal damage to the vampire if the body cannot separate the substance from the blood. The vampire must make a soak roll (difficulty 8) against 7 dice damage (difficulty 6). If the vampire is enduring enough to survive this consumption the his must move on to the third step of the ritual.

Step Three
The vampire must affix his gaze into his own eyes within the reflective surface, staring across the naked flame of the lit candle. The vampire's face must be no further than six inches away from the flame for the ritual to work. The Vampire must then spend two points of willpower. After the expenditure of willpower the vampire must make a series of courage rolls until he obtains 20 success' (difficulty 6). Each roll that is made takes 30 minutes. In the result of no successes in a courage roll the difficulty is increased by one (If a consecutive roll scores no success' then the difficulty keeps rising, in the result of a botch the vampire frenzies and ruins the ritual. If the vampire succeeds all 20-courage successes then the ritual works to the effectiveness of step one. The resistance works for two nights but can be boosted with the additional expenditure of willpower (One point of willpower will increase the ritual duration for one day).
If the ritual is successful then the vampires eyes will glaze over with a reflective surface and anyone staring into them will be gripped with disgust and fear. The vampire will be completely immune to the discipline 'Dominate' according to the potency of the 'Blindmans Blood'.
