the ritual below was found by the Church whilst re-consecrating an old shrine to Humakt:


Ritual to mend a broken heart

This ritual is to be used to lay at peace the soul and mind of one who suffers from a heart broken by mortal means. It will not heal those that are under the influence of powers wound by anothers hands.
The components required for this ritual are as listed:

The tears of an angel
A feather bathed in purifying liquids to be laid upon the brow of the afflicted person
A stone thrice blessed to be held by the same
The heart of one who died naturally to be held by the performing priest and into which all of the hurt is to be transferred


Firstly the affected person should be placed within a protection from evil spirits. They should be laid down with the purified feather placed upon their brow to soothe their mind. Their hands should be crossed over their breast holding the blessed stone to their heart to act as a focus to the ritual.

The performing priest should hold the heart into which the hurt is to be transferred and should stand outside the protection, but within his own protective circle

The following prayer should then be offered to the God:

“Humakt, Runelortd, I call thee to bring peace to this poor soul. Their heart has been broken, and their spirit shattered.
Allow your love to fill the gap in their spirit where compassion is now missing
Humakt, I call thee.
Bless this child that they may walk once again amongst your children of this place
Humakt I call thee, flow through me your love and remove fear and heartache
Humkat I call thee!”

Upon completing the prayer the heart in the priests hand will now contain the suffering once felt by the affected being. It should be blessed itself and covered in water blessed by the god himself.
Place the heart in a grave of its own and let it rest.

Also found in an old shrine to Humakt which has since been succesfully reconsecrated to Mortai:

The Hand of Humakt

For the peaceful laying to rest of any one creature
As I have pointed out in previous parchments, no such taking of life force comes without its cost, and the use of this scroll will also sorely tax the life force of the priest invoking the hand.

“Humakt, runelord! Allow now this creature of darkness to feel your touch. Hand of Humakt!”

This invocation is not restricted to the creatures of undeath that the hand of purity is effective against but will lay to rest any creature of darkness.

Also found in a shrine to Humakt reconsecrated now to Mortai and entrusted to Francis Birch

Notes for the drawing in to oneself an undead spirit.

Why someone would want to perform this rite is a mystery to me, but the god has allowed me access to the knowledge, so i write it down here.
There may be occasion where it is necessary for one to require to bring into themselves a spirit of undeath, such that it may then be returned peacefully to whence it came.

The prayer in itself is a simple one, and there may be occasion where one of the faith needs to house a spirit of undeath for a period of time in order to allow it to be destroyed in peaceful manner. I can only assume that this is the type of rite that would be used by paladins type, buy their ways are a mystery to me, as is their way of thinking.

{note: this portion of the rite has been removed at the request of the High Priest}


As i have already said, I can not think of any reason why any of the faith would wish to taint themselves in such a manner, but who am i to question the wisdom that the god allows me access to.

The Force of Humakt


Be wary thee who shall use this, for this rite shall sorely tax your force of life. This prayer is amongst the most potent that I have ever researched and its use should be reserved for only the most dire of situations.

This prayer is a request for direct intervention of the god himself. It shall render any creature of undeath immobile and return them to their place of existence. This prayer was a wide reach, and the God looks over a wide area to extend his touch.

Only those of highest standing within the Church are able to call the Deity himself, and none other should even begin to read further.
Know now that nothing comes without a price, and the price for the taking of this much force of death is the death also of the invoker of this scroll.

{I have currently removed the text of this rite as the notes above warn of its power. The rite itself names the reader as the High Priest and as such the full text is available to Lithmore. If Lithmore is happy for the full text to be released then I will of course amend it here - Harrsion}

The Cleansing

This ritual is most potent in its power and is needed to clear an area of the taint of undeath. Not as powerful as the Force of Humakt, but because of this it requires more of the faithful to perform it successfully.

Firstly, identify fully the area to be cleansed. The area should then be fully enclosed by a line of protection. The line needs only to be a weak line of power, and despite the length one standard invocation of protection will suffice, although still around the entire area to be cleansed
Four of the faithful then need to identify the corners of the area, and one should stand at each corner. Each should offer a short prayer of their own wording to announce their presence to the god. Each of the priests so used should carry with them a symbol of the God through which will flow his power.

When all who are performing the rite have made themselves known to the God, AS ONE they should offer the following prayer:

“Humakt, Runelord! I call you to this area to fill it with your presence.
Drive out those spirits that do not belong here and replace them with your power and wisdom. Come unto me my god and place me as a cornerstone to your Faith. I stand as a beacon to your faith.
Humakt I call thee
Humakt I invoke thee”
