Ritual of Lock
The Ritual of Lock is a ritual to create a magic lock on nearly everything you want to have sealed or locked away. May it be jewelery or just some old letters from your old love in a small box. Designed and crafted by the human race decades before the Dragonborn came into the world, humans tended to lock away their secrets. Even elves and dwarfs and some Underlings. Everyone can create a lock with the Ritual of Lock. Scholars discovered that the design of the ritual was something weaved into the fabric and the workings of the world so it is getting fueled with magic on its own, even in the different languages spoken in Koria. Especially dwarfs are trying to figure out how to make their own Rituals of Lock, but they had no real results.
The University of Hulwar, just a few scholars strong back in the day, discovered after years of meditation and training, that even the Old Gods and Eternals like Life and Death are bound to some principles, rules or guidelines. Following this path one of them had the bright moment and discovered some ways the world was working like water only flows downwards, things falling to the ground, everything dies in the end and, if someone is protective or strong willed enough, one can keep things closed. He wrote down the runes and the rules for them, crafted in more than eight years all three locks and died of exhaustion. Some said he burned out due to his knowledge, after looking directly into the working of the Creation.
The Ritual of Lock is rather simple in its function: everything beneath the lock will be sealed airtight, even parchment or paper or leaves. One only has to bring down the runes into the thing one wants to seal. One need the form and the runes and speak why and how this thing is to be sealed and protected. The last word has to be "close". To open the lock again it one has to create a codeword and weave it into the incantation.
O my Ritual of Lock. I hereby wish to lock this chest with all your power and strength because it would crush the entire economy if someone might find out ██████████ what lies within, so you keep it until I come to you again and you are still close.
