Bone Meal

2nd-level transmutation (ritual)

Casting Time: 1 minute

Range: Touch

Components: V, S, M (garlic salts, diced onion or shredded mint leaves)

Duration: Instant

You sprinkle a small handful of precious spices over a collection of bones. The spell carries off the taint of the Dead from the bones, making them fit for consumption. Bone meal does not make the bones easier or tastier to consume, but prevents any lingering Woe, poison, or disease from taking hold. Ground-up bones treated with this magic can be turned into a paste or a gruel that serves as a bland but nutritious meal.

You can purify up to ten servings of ground-up bones with one casting of this spell. Bone meal functions on any kind of inanimate bone, but it does not mitigate Woe gained from the act of cannibalism, so this spell is best reserved for use on animal bones. You can’t use this spell on the Dead until after they are destroyed and rendered inanimate.
