Description: At a basic level, magical vessels are containers produced by Holy magic that hold divine blessings or sacrifices. The "favor orb" is the best known form, but magicians versed in this spell demonstrate that others exist. Vessel of Salvation is perhaps the simplest vessel to produce, allowing the magician to give up a portion of his life force so that others can draw from it and perhaps save themselves from death. The magician can also draw upon his contained life force, but at greatly reduced efficency.

The function of vessels are similar across all variations: the magician rubs the resulting orb to sacrifice his life force, while anyone may benefit from the sacrifice at a touch.

Effect: Vitality damage, Vitality heal, use own vitality to create vitality "battery" that others can use
Example Messaging: You gesture.

A crimson sphere appears between your hands, suspended rigidly in space. As you withdraw your arms, flares of light erupt from its surface.

Use

It produces a sphere of light which can hold Vitality. The Paladin can sacrifice Vitality onto the sphere by RUBing it. Anyone can then TOUCH the sphere to receive the sacrifice and gain a Vitality boost. There is a substantial penalty to the Paladin himself trying to take back his sacrifice, but it works in a pinch.
Each RUB puts in 10%, taking it back myself gets me about 3% per rub.

Focus

You focus your magical senses on a sphere.
You sense a pattern of Holy magic bound into the form of a sacrifical vessel.
The simple vessel is designed to contain offerings of life force.
The vessel lies dormant and unused. OR A <size> offering is nestled within the vessel, which you could take with a simple touch.
You sense the vessel will last for about eight roisaen.
