Performing messages

Performing

You recite one of the prayers from your prayer book, ending with a call for Pishe to protect you from all harm.
The incense in your hands bursts into flames, filling the air with a thick blue-grey smoke.
The smoke surrounding you swirls mysteriously, drifting away from you to form a dome around you.

Success

The smoke surrounding you solidifies into a hard crystal sphere.
You are trapped inside!

Failure

The smoke surrounding you drifts away on a sudden breeze.

What others see

Priest recites one of the prayers from a book he is carrying, praising the name of Pishe.
The small packets being held by Priest bursts into flames briefly before burning out, leaving him surrounded by a thick cloud of blue-grey smoke.
The smoke seems to drift away from Priest, forming into a dome around him.
The smoke surrounding Priest solidifies into a hard crystal sphere.

Effect

The performer is put into a crystal sphere, separating them from the room and anyone in it.

Duration

The sphere seems to last about two and a half minutes.

Wearing off

It looks like this when it wears off of its own accord:

The sphere fades away leaving you standing in the road.

From outside:

Priest emerges from within the crystal, which then fades away.

You can also end the ritual prematurely, with "disintegrate sphere".

Wards

Details needed.

Notes

You cannot perform this ritual while in a passage room, while already in a crystal sphere, or, seemingly, while in any kind of no-portal zone. If you try, you'll get a message that you "cannot create a crystal sphere here" (although you can in fact create a crystal sphere in these places with Stasis).
