Rituals are occult aspects of bonds that are primarily organizations and represent special training for certain spells. They take longer to cast but their effects can last longer or take reduced materials. They are not magical in themselves, but serve to focus the mind of the caster in unique ways.

Example: The Candle Winding is a ritual of the Leaves of Wormwood. Twelve candles are placed around a corpse, with the final resting on the corpse itself. The ritualist walks slowly between the candles in a meandering pattern, occasionally crossing over the corpse, and stops at each to chant briefly and extinguish the flame. When the final candle is snuffed and the room is in darkness, the caster attempts to raise the corpse under her control as if she were two levels higher.
