Sufferance (4e Ritual)
From D&D Wiki
This ritual helps mitigate the worst wounds on the subject.
|Level:||3||Component Cost:||Up to 60,000 gp|
|Category:||Warding||Market Price:||200 gp|
|Time:||10 minutes||Key Skill:||Arcana or Religion|
With this ritual, you create an invisible field of magical energy that cloaks one creature (who must be present for the entire ritual and must be either willing or helpless), mitigating the effects of the worst wounds. While the ritual lasts, whenever the subject suffers a critical hit, the severity of the crit is reduced.
The amount of reduction depends on the level of the effect you create, as does the component cost. You cannot create a sufferance effect of a level higher than your own.
