The Item Cosmetic Transformation Ritual manipulates a Target Item into having Chosen Minor Alterations performed on it. This Ritual may be used to provide an in-game explanation for a changed phys rep on a Target Item, so long as the Item's in-game functionality does not otherwise change.

Chosen Alterations may include such things as scribing new spells or writing in an otherwise Indestructible book, altering the shape and size of a weapon, shield, or suit of armor (within the limits of its armor bonus), or allowing mundane upgrades to be added to an Item, such as Silvering, Strengthening, or adding a Superior Equipment effect. These Chosen Alterations may be made even if the Item is normally Indestructible due to other Rituals. Upgrades that normally require being present at Logistics or a Crafting station, such as Silvering, are not required while performing this Ritual.

The Target Item can be altered an unlimited amount of times until it leaves the Circle of Power or until the next Logistics period, whichever comes sooner. The Target Item's basic type may not be changed. For example, a Blunt weapon may not be altered into a Polearm, nor may a Short Sword be shifted into a Long Sword. This Ritual Effect will not allow the erasing of information from the Target Item, and some items - especially those which have recently changed hands or those of extraordinary power - may resist this Ritual's power.

A Target Item that has been stolen may not have its physical rep transformed using this Ritual, unless the player from which it was stolen chose to keep the original physical rep and forfeit their right to attempt to find the item in-game via its physical rep.

When performing this Ritual, contact your Logistics team to have the item tag updated at the time of Ritual casting or later at their convenience. Should this Ritual be cast on an Artifact, the Local Plot Committee may elect to determine the results.

This Ritual requires 3 Reagents to cast as listed on the scroll.
