Nydroth's Grisly Joining (4e Ritual)
From D&D Wiki
Nydroth's Grisly Joining
This ritual combines two creatures into one horrifying fusion.
This foul ritual mixes two (and only two) creatures together, fusing them into a single creature with a degree of success determined by your skill check. Both subjects must be present for the entire casting of the ritual, and each must be either willing or helpless. In all cases, the dm will design the resultant creature based on your skill check.
The ritual's component cost starts at 3,500 gp and increases based on the tier and level of each subject. A heroic tier subject adds 100 gp per level to the cost. A paragon tier subject adds 1,000 gp per level to the cost, and an epic tier subject adds 10,000 gp per level to the cost.
