Celestial Hekau and Supernaturals

What Will Not Work

Celestial Hekau affects the caster or the world around them. As a general rule, other people can only benefit from Celestial Hekau by proximity to the caster or indirectly.

No agent of Apophis can benefit from hekau unless it is Dark Hekau. This includes all vampires, risen and other forms of animated, non-living beings (regardless of whether their souls are corrupt). This also includes Bane Mummies, Black Spiral Dancers, Formori, Nephandi, Spectres, Thallain, and Demons.

Legendary items that still have power from the era of Ancient Egypt are the only real exception to these rules. After all, many supernaturals aided Egypt in it's prime and they all worked magic in similar ways. Since then time and belief have eroded this commonality.

Level Five Spells & Rituals

Ra's Gaze (Ritual)

Dice Pool: ?? + Celestial
Difficulty: 9
Sekhem: 8

With this powerful ritual, the Amenti can call upon the sun to shine, even through clouds, indoors, or at night. This spell's soul purpose is to harm and hopefully kill vampires, especially the Followers of Set, who are exceptionally vulnerable to sunlight.

If the ritual is performed successfully the caster then has the power to, in an instant, call upon a direct ray of sunlight projected from his/her eyes for a number of hours equal to the Amenti's Willlpower. This ray, if it hits a vampire, is considered direct sunlight, unobscured, and will inflict aggravated wounds. The ray is powered by Sekhem, and the caster must spend a point of Sekhem every round beyond the first he/she wishes it to continue. During the ritual, as an added bonus, there is a faint glow of the rising sun about the caster, so that any vampire who gets close must be ready to deal with both Rotschreck and sunlight with a difficulty of 7.
