Kindred of the East: Crimson Empires
Rite of Jade Attunement
The Rite of Jade Attunement, lvl 2
To perform this ritual, the vampire must recite a brief mantra just before sunrise, succeed on a Manipulation + Rituals roll, and place the jade item in her mouth (if the item is too large for this, she must instead cut herself open and put the jade inside her, which will likely cause at least one or two health levels of bashing damage). The ritualist then lays down at sunrise to enter Little Death, normally. When she awakens, the jade will be attuned solely to her. (At this point, the character no longer needs to keep it inside her.)
No one can take advantage of the mystical properties of the item except for the character to whom the item is attuned, including storing Chi or using its special properties.
A piece of red jade, for example, provides no good joss or special protection from magic except when used by the ritualist. Such a selfish act is normally frowned upon, but the
Rite of Jade Attunement is being performed more and more often in Korea, where jade is becoming more scarce than anyone wants to admit…
