Kindred of the East: Crimson Empires
Rite of Supplication
Rite Of Supplication, lvl 5
Once a gateway has been found and identified, Kuei-jin of power and standing may open such a portal and cross through it into the spirit worlds. This task is deceptively simple, though only mighty Kuei-jin can perform it properly. Having completed the rite to Behold the Spirits’ Doorway, the Kuei-jin wishing to cross through the portal need only ring a small bell or gong.
System: The Kuei-jin takes a small bell or gong and rings (or beats) it five times slowly. Each peal of the bell must die away fully before the next can sound. With the final dying away of the fifth tone, the gateway opens and the traveler can step through it. Note that there may be guardians of the gate, either within the Middle Kingdom or on the other side, who must be placated or bested before the Kuei-jin can utilize the gate.
