Ritual of Imbuing
5th-level Necromancy (ritual)
Casting time: 6 Hours
Range: Touch
Components: S, M ( 6,000 Gold Pieces Worth of Decorated Surgeon's Tools, and a Fresh Piece of The Creature of your choice, Both of Which the Spell Consumes ).
Duration: 1 year

Taking the pieces of a creature that you keep within 5 feet of your person throughout the ritual, you sew mixtures of arcane, mechanical or eldritch energy, alongside the pieces of the creature that you've chosen into your body, or into a willing or unconscious creature that remains within your range of touch for the duration. At the end of the duration of the spell, roll a check, determined by your main spellcasting ability score. On a check of one through ten, the ritual fails, and the piece of the creature is wasted. On a check result of eleven through fifteen, the piece is consumed, but you (alongside your Dungeon Master for assistance and balance) may choose a minor property from the creature to add. (Ex. The darkvision of an Owlbear, or the climbing abilities of a Roper). On a check of sixteen through twenty, the user may now consume the piece and choose either two minor properties, or one major property of the creature (Ex. The regenerative abilities of a Troll, or the Winged Flight of a Dragon). Finally, on a check of twenty-one through twenty-five, the user may choose between two major properties of the creature, or a legendary property (Ex. The legendary resistance of a Lich, or the Annihilating Aura of a Nightwalker).

Replacing your, or someone else's being can prove to be quite the heavy toll on a person's body, and psyche. After casting, the caster must make a Constitution saving throw equal to the roll that they'd performed. On a failure, the user takes two levels of exhaustion, and one indefinite madness from the Dungeon Master's Guide, or the DM's choice. On success, the caster only takes two levels of exhaustion. A creature may only have a number of modifications equal to half their Constitution Modifier, rounded up. If you wish, you may choose to enact this ritual, and without the component of the creature, remove a property from a target.
