THE RITUAL

The method used to extract a CLOAK OF POWER from someone who was unwilling to give it up. In order to be successful, it required a majority (6 out of 8) of The Gods to perform it, due to the need of that many seals. Each seal was personalized and unique to each god that held a CLOAK OF POWER . If a cloak was taken from one being and given another, the new holder of the cloak would design a seal that would draw its power from the cloak.

Once started it became a contest of wills between those who were performing it and the intended victim and though less cloaks would not mean defeat for the performers, the majority of cloaks is necessary to be able to remove the cloak from its possessor.

Incidentally, the design of the seal The God chooses is exactly the same as the marks their loyal followers that were able to draw power from them bare.
