Kobyashi v Helkarakse

Genesis, the god of timeto Everyone

Kobyashi, you are wrong there. The boost in the ritual is not intended to be a defence to beinng rubbed by wax. Since the destruction of the wax wipes you out whatever your health, mana or defences.

Argue against Helkarakse having Mysticism in the first place by all means, but do not expect that ritual to defend you against having your waxen image burnt.
