This area effective ritual makes everyone in the room lose a sense of direction. Not effective against npcs, only for pk purposes (though the effects are not pk-checked). With enough levels of fa.ri.de (specific sub-skill to be tested), the effects of this ritual may be avoided.
Performing the ritual several times in the same room will cause its duration to stack.
> perform lost highways You set fire to the incense while chanting the psalm of the lost. With a whispered prayer, you wave the incense around, creating a rough outline of the room. You drag your set of sapphire prayer beads through the smoky pattern, blurring it into irrecognisability. Reality softens like butter on a lobster. Everything swirls and twists, and you can no longer rightly tell one direction from another anymore.
