The Non-Euclidean Formulas: This five-hour ritual will conjure the Angular Shapeshifter. The sorcerer must perform the ritual while writing hermetic calculations on the tanned skinned of five Bone Men flayed with an obsidian knife whose knob is set with a red opal worth at least 2,000 gp. As the ritual is completed, the sorcerer must ignite the skins with Greek fire. Then the Angular Shapeshifter will appear.
The Fifty-fourth Dark Theorem: This ritual takes 5 minutes to complete. At the end of the recitation, the sorcerer must attract the Angular Shapeshifter in a pool filled with honey. Once it is fully submerged, the Angular Shapeshifter will return to the interstellar void.
Sublimation of the Highest Dimension: This one-hour ritual can be performed only during a total solar eclipse in the Icy Wastes. The sorcerer, the face smeared with the blood of a throat cut Jale child, must fire a Neodymium ray towards the Sun. At the ritual’s end, the Angular Shapeshifter will obey the sorcerer at daytime until the next solar eclipse.
The Spherical Perfection: To complete this twenty-minute ritual, the sorcerer must be at the center of a circle formed by the skulls of seven sorcerers he defied and killed on top of which he has placed seven candles made with grease levied on Green virgins. The candles then burn for twenty minutes whereafter the Angular Shapeshifter is trapped in the molten core of Carcosa. But if a candle burns too fast, too slow or turns off the sorcerer spontaneously ignites and melts like a candle, slowly drying out in atrocious suffering.
Obliteration of the Null Polytope: This nine-hour ritual can be performed only in hex 0808 in the largest crater of a very old volcano. There, the sorcerer must cast five blind and albino Dolm men in the fiery pit as he psalmody mysterious formulas.He must then pour three ounces of virgin quicksilver (collected in a basin of hex 0204) in the lava. During the ritual, the volcano will erupt while the Angular Shapeshifter, buried deep in the liquid core of Carsosa, struggles, plagued with unspeakable torments. At the ritual’s end, the Angular Shapeshifter will be bound to the sorcerer’s will for the next solar year.
