Transmutation 3

Ritual - Destruction

The leader is the target of this ritual. The leader of the ritual then gains one use of instantaneous MAGIC TRIPLE KNOCKBACK after every 10 seconds of continuous, stationary roleplay. Other participants may leave after the first 10 seconds, only the leader is required to continue the Ritual. The total number of calls granted by this Ritual is equal to the number of participants +1. You may save calls up and use them later in the Ritual. If the leader voluntarily moves from the spot, the Ritual ends. When the Ritual ends, the leader loses the calls. This is the ritual of blowing up gates and boss monsters. This ritual must be performed in a loud, obvious manner.
Transmutation 4

Ritual - Subvert the Ideal 

Subvert effects and COMPELs, altering the effect that they have. The casters will not know if they have succeeded against a COMPEL.
Transmutation 5

Ritual - Cleanse the Earth 

“Cleanse the Earth” can solve seemingly limitless problems via enough brute arcane force. Examples include removing an effect or wound entirely, blasting holes in a fortification, or casting out possession by a Stranger. However, it invariably has side effects in other areas. An exorcism subject may find their personality scrambled for a while. Sappers might take some wounds from backlash. The total stamina spent by the participants must be at least 10. Participants may spend extra stamina to reach this minimum. This ritual must be performed in a loud, obvious manner.
