This Ritual, if cast as Encryption, causes any text present on the Target item to be completely indecipherable by non-magical means or, if cast as Decryption, causes any text enchanted by the Encryption Ritual to return to its prior state.

Items targeted by the Encryption Ritual will not identify as being Encrypted, but anyone examining the text can tell that it has been magically altered.

Text that was in any type of code or cipher before it was Encrypted will be returned to that state (and potentially be able to be decoded) if a Decryption Ritual is cast on the Item targeted by this effect.

The Local Plot Committee should be notified in advance of the Ritual casting, so a proper experience may be supplied.

This ritual requires 3 reagents to cast as listed on the ritual scroll.


This ritual can not be spellcrafted.
