Prerequisite(s): Spellcasting Class Feature

Your study of magic has unlocked the mysteries of ritual spells. When you gain this feat, you also gain a ritual book, which contains the rituals you know. To cast a ritual spell, you must have your ritual book in hand.

Choose one of the following spellcasting classes: bard, cleric, druid, witch, or wizard. You must choose your rituals from that class’s spell list. Regardless of which list you choose, you use your normal spellcasting ability for these spells.

When you first gain your ritual book, you add one ritual of each spell level you have already unlocked via your spellcasting class. For example, a bard that selects this feat at 4th level has spell slots for 1st level and 2nd level, so they would add one 1st-level ritual and one 2nd-level ritual to their book.

Each time you gain access to a new level of spell slots by gaining a level in your spellcasting class, you add one new ritual spell to your book. This new ritual must be from the same spell list you originally chose, and it must be of a level for which you have spell slots. For example, when a bard reaches 5th level, they gain access to 3rd-level spells, so the bard would select one ritual spell of 3rd level or lower to add to their ritual book.

Rituals you learn in this way do not count against the number of spells you learn at each level, but ritual spells you learn in this way can’t be cast as normal spells—even if the spell description would typically allow you to choose whether a spell can be cast as a normal spell or a ritual spell.
