The ritualist advantage usually requires a number of hours of research and preparation, followed by a number of minutes to cast the spell. If you use the ritualist advantage to cast a spell with an effect worth 10pp, this would typically take 40 hours (4 hours X 10pp) to research and 10 minutes (1 minute X 10pp) to cast. This can be overridden by either using a power stunt (to make a power you already have work the way you want e.g. laser becomes a blinding flash), or by using a hero point to make an improvised spell (which skips the research portion and drops the time to cast from pp in minutes to pp in rounds).

This doesn't apply right now though as you have the communicate with spirits ability already. That said, I think it would be cooler and more fun if you had to get inside to talk to Opal. It won't be hard, but if there wasn't a modicum of risk in attaining this information, I would simply have given it to you.

Side note: There are more things you could ask Opal about than just how she died, etc...

I was indeed planing on him talking to her directly, of course- I'd actually forgotten I even had the ritualist advantage. I'll have to use that later at some point when it's appropriate. Think you may've misinterpreted my intentions is all, but it's no big. He just wanted to make sure her spirit was even there in the first place before they went through the trouble of breaking/talking/sneaking their way in.

No problem. Ritualist gets a bad rap because of its ridiculous lead time for making a one time spell. However, its main use is on the fly hero moments. Someone getting away? Spend a hero point and a couple rounds and suddenly you have speed 5, or teleportation. Doing this might cause a mishap, but it is a good advantage for when that risk is worth it.

Jesus those numbers... When I initially designed this story, I planned for crazy gung-ho players. Definitely not what I had expected :)

Heh... I am kinda glad my story hasn't derailed yet. I had back up plans for what would happen if you immediately attacked Detective Breckenridge. Somehow my plan not being derailed feels like a derailment :P

I may or may not have used my entire foreshadowing budget on that post.

Explaining my choice: I feel it might be better to keep a possible way for Scylla to interact. It also ensures we know both of you have the information.

Would I be free to have Vincent make some assumptions, like; "Hmm, a weak spiritual presence, but a strong earthly connection."
