This ritual must be performed on a weaponsmith, armorsmith or some kind of professional that can work with the material of either your weapon or your armor. It guides the hands of the specialist into inscribing the image of your dragon patron type onto either your armor or weapon with eerie realism. As you gaze at it, it seems to shift around and breath. By focusing your thoughts on the image of the dragon you see its breath take form.
When you first learn this ritual you must declare what type of dragon you revere and/or who your draconic patron is. The type of dragon you pick will determine how your sigil functions. This ritual can only be performed on either your armor or your weapon at one time.
If you choose to use this ritual on your weapon you can activate your sigil's power 3 times before it fades. You can add an additional 1d8 of your selected damage type to any attack. Increase to 1d10 and 4 times before fading at 11th level, and increase to 1d12 and 5 times before fading at 21st level.
If you choose to use this ritual on your armor you can activate your sigil's power 3 times before it fades. You can activate it as an immediate interrupt free action to grant 5 resistance to the type of damage your sigil represents and a +2 to your AC. Increase to 8 resistance and 4 times before fading at 11th level, and increase to 10 resistance and 5 times before fading at 21st level.
