Description: Rite of Contrition builds on the magician's earlier knowledge of creating fields of psychic corruption, taking a turn toward the mystical. Where previous fields focused on affecting the physical senses of those around the Necromancer, Rite of Contrition subverts their supernatural senses.

While the spell is held, the magician can hide any necromantic corruption in his body. The more power fed into the spell, the more corruption can be washed away. This affects attempts to perceive the Necromancer's taint, but does nothing to defend against attempts to exploit it: a Moon Mage can be fooled, Harm Evil cannot.

Finally, the spell matrix is designed to react poorly to the presence of Transcendental Necromancy spells, to aid in the magician's display of contrition. While in use, the Rite of Contrition will dispel any active transcendental mutation.

Effect: Reduces visible Divine Outrage. Removes Transcendental Necromancy spells while in effect.
Example Messaging: You weave a field of sublime corruption, concealing the scars in your aura under a layer of magical pretense.(1st message)

The Rite of Contrition matrix redoubles its hold on your senses. Joyous corruption seeps into your mind from your own spell, muting your unconscious sense of shame.(2nd message)

Devices/Tattoos: No devices or tattoos documented.
