You prefer to practice your magic through rituals, whether alone or in groups of like minded casters. You take comfort in the comparative safety of ritualized magic versus that practiced on the battlefield. Rituals ground you and give you peace, as well as the chance to perform more powerful, permanent spells away from prying eyes. You are an expert in researching rituals and related magics.

Skill Proficiencies: Arcana or Religion (your choice), Investigation.

Tool Proficiencies: Ritual kit.

Equipment: A set of ceremonial ritual clothes (cultural, religious, or theatrical), a ritual kit, and a pouch containing 15 gp gained from rituals performed for past clients.


You gain a +1 bonus to Arcana, Concentration, and Religion checks you make while performing your rituals and a +1 bonus to your Investigation checks involving Arcana, Religion, and rituals.

Suggested Characteristics

Ritualists tend to be even more secretive and introverted than other spellcasters—except among their own kind, where it can be hard to shut them up. They constantly strive to perfect and jealously guard their rituals from prying eyes, though they may be open to swap rituals with fellow ritualists.
