Parch is a priest ritual that dries the target. Aside from stopping you from squelching and drying out towels more quickly than wringing, it can dry recently-marbled things, or recently sculpted pottery (to make it ready to be fired).

Performing

This ritual costs 20 GP, and is performed on yourself, someone else, or an object, and is not pk-checked when performed on another player. The target must be wet.

It can also be performed on a cloud created by Fyodor's Nimbus of Porterage, but this is pk-checked. It's not clear what, if anything, this does.research

It requires the powers of speech and movement.
