With this ritual, the effects are as follows:
The Flesh Shaper grants one of the following
Traits to the subject: Amphibious, Blind, Burrower (X),
Crawler, Dark Sight, Fear (X), Deadly Natural Weapons,
Flyer (X), Machine (X), Multiple Arms (X), Natural Armour
(X), Quadruped, Regeneration (X), Size (X), Sturdy, Toxic (X)
or Unnatural Characteristic (X). For each Degree of Success
after the first, the Flesh Shaper may increase the value of any
Trait listed with an ‘X’ by 1 (to a maximum of 6). Each donor
sacrificed adds an additional Trait (to a maximum of 6).
This brings up a few questions.
Does each trait added require its own roll (in this case, Very Hard Medicae/Difficult Scholastic Lore Occult) to determine degree of effect?
If not, does the DoS of the single roll effect all traits (ie, 4 donors + 4 DoS = 4 "(X)" traits @ 4), or only single traits as desired (ie, 4 donors + 4 DoS = 4 "(X)" traits @ 1; with additional +3 spread out as desired across those 4 traits)?
Seems kind of important - a nifty little ritual if its the latter (Regen 4, Unnatural Agility/Strength/Toughness 1 is nifty), a really powerful ritual if the former (Regen and Unnatural Agility/Strength/Toughness 4 is awesome).
I'm guessing its just a vague aspect of the non-errata'd material and open to interpretation, but was curious if there had been any past discussion on the matter (and couldn't find any by searching around).
