Moves you across the Disc

Description

This ritual moves the priest and any people following the priest across the disc to the place which has been remembered on the item the ritual is targeted at. It does this by passing the travelers through a special room located in an elemental fold between the planes. Each God has its own special room as the halfway point, each with different means of exit, and you are no longer able to exit via a second divine hand from the room. Commonly known as 'passaging' due to the former names of the ritual, Air/Water/Earth/Fire Passage.

Help File

This ritual lets the priest enter into a special room halfway between the current location and the destination. The room, hidden in an elemental fold between the planes, is created to allow the priest to move great distances in merely two paces.

Prior to performing divine hand on an object, you must first use the Remember Place ritual to mark a location on an object.

Ward Effect

When impressed as a ward, this ritual sends the thief to the location where the ward was impressed.

They may also send someone into the freezer of the Butchers' Guild in Ankh-Morpork, even if the ward was bestowed somewhere else.

Example

> perform divine hand on baton

You say a prayer over a dull grey baton.
You attempt to visualise the place that you remembered.
You pray to Gufnork to grant you the means to travel there.
You meditate on the holiness of Gufnork before vanishing.

Delicate white fluffy material is spread liberally around this room, so much so that it feels somewhat akin to being inside a giant mound of fluff. In fact, there are a few wispy trails of fluff draped around the place, none more so than on what is presumably a small statue of Gufnork. A large ball of fluff hovers above the statue, occasionally dropping a few stray lumps of fluff.
There are no obvious exits.

> roll around in the fluff
Fluff travels around your body at alarming speed, completely covering you. Totally encased in fluff, you feel perfectly at one with Gufnork for a moment before you suddenly find yourself elsewhere.

It is night and there is no moon.
This is the Street of Small Gods between two temples, a large, friendly one to the north and a small, grim-looking one to the south. This seems like a fairly major part of the street, due to the major temples to either side. There seems to be some sort of a ruddy red glow over Sek's temple, although it would probably be a bad idea to inquire about what exactly is causing it. The street continues west and northeast, with more temples in either direction.
One or two people wander past, apparently heading somewhere.
It is a slightly chilly autumn prime's night with almost no wind and scattered puffy clouds.
There are four obvious exits: northeast, west, north and south.
Kess of Sek is standing here.
A street lamp is emitting a grimy light here.
