Lends mental power through physical sacrifice.


Performing this ritual allows the priest to convert their physical endurance to mental strength. Opening your wrists with the dagger, you offer your hit points to your God in exchange for guild points. The effectiveness of this conversion is based on the miscellaneous faith skills of the performer. Beware! It's one of the most dangerous rits in game. You wouldn't be the first one to bleed to death due to a lack of cu.se bonus, or even a serious lagburst.

Whilst bleeding you will suffer a -2 loss in con and str, and you cannot do anything that would normally cost gp as you are too distracted. Due to the stat loss, it is usually recommended to have a cu.se bonus of around 250 before using the ritual in case you don't have enough left to stop the bleeding.

The command to end the blood loss is 'staunch blood'.

> perform holy sacrifice
You raise your arms towards the heavens, the stiletto in your hand.
Shaking slightly, you tense and then slash the stiletto across your wrist.
You grasp your holy symbol and pray for Sek to accept your blood offering.
The blood flowing from your arm is accepted as an offering and you feel more alert.  You should probably "staunch" the
bleeding when you are ready.

Some more of your life force slips between your fingers.
