Additional Ritual Spells[edit]

Right, let's set one thing straight: The selection of ritual spells in the PHB is puny. The additional supplemental books don't help this situation much either. Unless you are for some reason creating a divination caster (or an NPC spellcaster with a specialty in divination), the selection spells gifted with the ritual tag are token utilities that at best that barely contribute to being able to further a character's thematic choices.

(mainly I'm just salty about the Ritual Caster feat having a tiny selection of spells to pick up and only letting you learn those from a single class list, and then having the audacity to let you learn more like a wizard)

The following spells (and spells from other supplements as well) are thusly granted the ritual tag by this optional rule, sorted by spell school and then by level.

Some of these spells deviate from typical the typical +10-minute casting time usually granted to ritual spells; ritual spells with durations that are shorter than or equal to normal supersede the regular casting duration of the spells they inherit from. Ritual spells that are changed this way are noted with their altered ritual-casting time.
