Ancestral blessing was a common spell used by shugenja in Kara-Tur. The spell was very rare outside Kara-Tur.[1]


When cast, the spell called upon the ancestral spirits of the caster. The caster used this spell to seek advice or protection. The summoned spirit answered one question or bestowed a single blessing. The caster could also ask the spirit to guard a location. If granted, the spirit acted as an alarm, warning the caster against non-magical intrusions. The spirit guarded the location for up to one month and did not aid in the defense of said location.[1]


In addition to verbal and somatic components, the spell required material components, a thimble and one dozen grains from any cereal crop.[1]
