Cool is a priest ritual that cools the target down somewhat. It is learned at 30 levels of faith.rituals.misc. Followers of Gapp are also able to learn this ritual.

Performing

This ritual costs 45 GP, and is performed on yourself or another living thing. It is partially pk-checked: performing it on an npk is only possible if they're not too cold already, and the ritual will end when they reach "quite comfortable".

It requires the powers of speech and sight.

Skills

This ritual uses faith.rituals.misc.self or faith.rituals.misc.target, depending on whether you're performing it on yourself or another.

Effect

Mainly, it makes the target cooler. The precise strength of the effect is unknown, but it's thought to be fairly weak.

While it lasts, there's also a line added to their description, that varies by deity:

Pishe:

She is surrounded by a slight fall of hail. 

Gufnork:

She is surrounded by a cloud of chilly mist. 

Gapp:

The air around her moves with a fluttering wind. 

Sandelfon:

She has a haze of stale greyish air around her. 

Fish:

She has ice crystals glittering on her skin. 

Hat:

She is shivering inside a swirl of cold air. 

Sek:

She is wrapped in a blue-white flame. 

Duration

The duration per performance seems to be approximately half your bonus in seconds plus 30. It stacks fully with itself--performing it again adds the full extra duration to the end, so if one performance will last two minutes, then two performances will last four minutes total.

Wearing off

You get a message when it wears off, which varies by deity.

Pishe:

The hailstones falling around you gradually let up.

Gufnork:

The clouds around you dissipate gradually, floating away.

Gapp:

The gusts of wind blowing across you cease with a gentle caress.

Sandelfon:

The stale air around you is replaced by fresher air.

Fish:

The grains of ice around you melt against your skin.

Hat:

The gusts of wind battering you fade away.

Sek:

Your skin stops prickling from divine cold.

Wards

Notes

Warm will remove this ritual, ending it early, and vice versa.
