Thanatological rituals are the occult rites and practices through which a Necromancer may utilize the Thanatology skill. These rites largely involve the creation of a corrupt Empathic Transference link or otherwise twisting a formerly living being's life force in some fashion, but also includes things like the simple study of gross anatomy or the various more mundane rites or rituals associated with the Philosophers of the Knife. All Thanatological rituals require the use of a ritual knife (typically a simple worn belt knife) which is specifically designated for this purpose; the use of a ritual knife for any other purpose besides the performance of Thanatological rituals or skinning will render it unusable for other rituals.
To use a thanatological ritual, PERFORM (RITUAL) ON (TARGET) -- if the target is yourself, you may leave it out.
If the Necromancer is using the Obfuscation spell, rituals will not message other people in the room upon being performed.
