Ritual of Tsovinar, by way of correspondence to Jack (correspondence)

To the Sea Lord Jack Tar,

We have struggled these last several months in our research in order to find you a way to communicate with Tsovinar. We have even opened the “Blasted Tomes” and did take some pain for that.

That being said, we seem to have found something to help. We cannot send you the original texts, both because it is doubtful you speak the necessary languages to understand it, but also because none of us believe it would survive the trip. So please utilize what we were able to copy over.

The nuances of the ancient languages preclude us being able to give you a 100% accurate translation, this should be close enough, even during a ritual, to get what you need. Many of the current day prayers to Umberlee seem to be bastardized prayer chants originally to Tsovinar and her brother.

In order to summon forth the presence of Tsovinar, you must be in a small boat in calm water. You will need the following:

Create a sea amulet.

With a pair of scallop shells that fit together. In the bottom of the shell place powdered aquamarine mixed with the powdered “Tears of the Gods” (pearls from the orient is the closest translation we can give you). In the shells with the powdered mixture place a bit of driftwood and a small silver coin. Anoint it with a drop of sea water and close the shells, sealing the shells in gold and wrap with a blue ribbon and wear it around your neck..

Then to prepare the area for worship do the following, the bread represents the true tithing the land must give the sea for the bounty it receives in return:

  • String the garlic across the hull of the boat, to protect you from the evil of the sea.
  • Throw corn bread off the bow of the boat saying “Hear my words goddess of the sea” The corn in the bread
  • Throw sardine oil off the starboard side, “Take these gifts goddess of the sea”
  • Throw whale oil off the port side, “Listen to the words of your humble worshipper.”
  • Throw Broa bread off the aft, “As I petition of thee your counsel.

Once you have prepared you ship thusly, the you will begin the rest of the ritual incantation itself. You will stand in the middle of your boat, cut the back of your arms and allow the blood to flow down and proclaim the following incantation:

Let us bring forth the angry avenger.
Let us proclaim before the judge
Let us cry aloud for her fury
To be unleashed on our enemies

Let us call the storm of the seas,
Your favor, O Goddess,
Our out your wrath above our enemy
Your judgment their fate,

Let us bring forth the angry avenger.
Let us proclaim before the judge
Let us cry aloud for her fury
To be unleashed on our enemies

By the evils of our enemies that have offended
Your righteous fury shall thwart
Accept our sacrifices now
So we may vanquish the weak and cowardly

Let us bring forth the angry avenger.
Let us proclaim before the judge
Let us cry aloud for her fury
To be unleashed on our enemies

Hear, O great protector of the sea
Grant us by the waves of the ocean
Grant us by the children who live below
This most sacred pleading

Let us bring forth the angry avenger.
Let us proclaim before the judge
Let us cry aloud for her fury
To be unleashed on our enemies

Come forward and speak with your sacred child.

If the goddess is able and willing, she should respond to you at this time.

Yours faithfully,
Lars von Trieger, Temple of Serapis Researcher
