Amusingly enough, I never knew the exact words for that Monty Python chant. Guess I'm not enough of a fanatic about it...Though I have done the coconut thing,in addition to climbing a tree and picking one too! No African Swallows for me!

Voting for the potential here. A very useful scroll. Go to Comment

Found in an old tome of the Crimson Order of the Triguian faith:

From Holy Light comes Matchless Right,
No Evil shall escape His Sight,
Let thee which came from Evil's Blight,
Know His Power, Lord Trigu's Might!

Some monotheistic ones too.

Pygmy Hymn

In the beginning was God,
Today is God
Tomorrow will be God.
Who can make an image of God?
He has no body.
He is as a word
which comes out of your mouth.
That word! It is no more,
It is past, and still it lives!
So is God.

Nunc dimittis

Nunc dimittis servum tuum, Domine, secundum verbum tuum in pace:
Quia viderunt oculi mei salutare tuum
Quod parasti ante faciem omnium populorum:
Lumen ad revelationem gentium, et gloriam plebis tuae Israel.
-- -- -- -- --
At last, all-powerful Master,
You give leave to your servant
to go in peace, according to your promise.
For my eyes have seen your salvation,
Which you have prepared for all nations,
The light to enlighten the Gentiles,
And give glory to Israel, your people.

Ave Maria/Hail Mary

Ave Maria, gratia plena Dominus tecum;
Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus.
Sancta Maria, Mater Dei ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae.
-- -- -- --
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee;
Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Blessing for Dwelling in the Sukkah (Jewish)

Barukh atah Adonai, Elohaynu, melekh ha-olam
asher keedishanu b'meetzvotav v'tzeevanu
leisheiv ba-sukkah (Amein)
-- -- -- --
Blessed are you, Lord, our God, king of the universe
who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us
to dwell in the sukkah (Amen) Go to Comment

Pie Jesu

Pie Jesu Domine, dona eis requiem,
Pie Jesu Domine, dona eis requiem,
Pie Jesu Domine, dona eis requiem, sempiternam.

Blessed Lord Jesus, grant them rest,
Blessed Lord Jesus, grant them rest,
Blessed Lord Jesus, grant them eternal rest.

Invocation for Storing Corn (From 17th century Mexico)

I myself
Spirit in Flesh:

come forth
elder sister
Lady of Our Flesh

soon I shall place you
inside my jade jar

hold up the four directions
don’t shame yourself

you shall be my breath
you shall be my cure

for me, Poor Orphan
for me, Centeotl

you, my elder sister
you, Tonacacihuatl

A Midwife’s Invocation (Nahuatl prayer)

After a woman has given birth, the ritual with the newborn then begins. To wash it, they cast a spell on the vessel and on the water, thus:

Please come forth,
My jade calabash-cup
And my mother Jade-skirted One;
Soon you will bathe here,
Soon you will cleanse here
What was born in your hands,
What came to life in your hands. Go to Comment

Two prayers to the god Mihnamo Tiger-Eyes, to be said by his faithful before or during combat.

The Supplication
Mihnamo Tiger-Eyes give me strength and I will gorge you on the blood of my enemies.

Warrior's Prayer

Ready me now for the dawn
Crimson with the blood of those yet to be slain
Your path I have walked
Your prey I have stalked
My enemies blood like rain
And all but your eyes has gone. Go to Comment

Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel

Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in praelio. Contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium. Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur. Tuque princeps militiae caelestis, Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos, qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo divina virtute in infernum detrude. Amen.

Saint Michael, Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into Hell Satan and all other evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Prayer for the dead

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis. Requiescant in pace. Amen.

Eternal rest grant onto them, O Lord, and perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen. Go to Comment

Murometz's comment on 2006-10-21 12:41 AM
I have faith in you Oh Emptiness.
I have faith in the Eternal Fast.
I have faith in the Infinite Thirst.

Ayyosha’s suffering be praised! Overcome any bitterness that may have come
because you were not up to the magnitude
of the pain and suffering that was entrusted to you.

Like Ayyosha, the Mother of Hunger
who carries the pain of the world
in her heart, each one of us is
part of her heart and therefore
each is endowed with a certain measure
of cosmic hunger.

You are sharing in the totality
of that suffering and are called upon
to meet it in joy instead of
self-pity.

Only when you purge yourself of all sustenance
can you begin to tread the path of enlightenment.

Oh Emptiness that I come from,
out of which all things come,

I love you more than all the fires
that fence the world,
for the fire makes a circle of light for everyone,
and then no one outside learns of you.

But the Emptiness pulls in everything,
shapes and fires, plants and animals and my humble self.

How easily it gathers them,
powers and people.

It is possible a great energy is moving near us.
I have faith in you Oh Emptiness.
I have faith in the Eternal Fast.
I have faith in the Infinite Thirst.

Ayyosha’s suffering be praised!

manfred's comment on 2006-10-13 02:29 AM
As the bonuses are of a minor nature, it is a useful item for any older wizard (for any old character in fact!), not too powerful but just the thing that you'd wish to have at your side, when the time comes. The main power would be that of improved coordination I guess.

I can imagine that once the process becomes known, wizards will be creating it regularly - a fine base for a Generic Magical Item! Go to Comment

You know, for an added silly effect (as well as more usefulness), it could be enchanted to deal large subdual damage if whacked upon people. While an old gramp hitting people with his cane tends to look laughable, it may be an excellent weapon of protection. Go to Comment

MoonHunter's comment on 2006-10-13 12:27 PM
While ironic, I did not need the creator of the cane to die for this item to work for me.

I would think that this would be a "common item" something any mage might make (though they might put it in a staff). This kind of item could very happily rank up there with charms and little hexed talismans for "every day" items. Go to Comment
