Default Re: Ritual Magic

(a) It depends on which system you use. For example, Path and Book Magic, in GURPS Thaumatology, has a base time for most rituals of between 15 and 60 minutes. That's not specified for other systems; for example, Ritual Magic that uses the standard spells in the Basic Set isn't stated to take any longer.

(b) However, my concept of a ritual is as a procedure that really ought to take minutes or hour, not as something you can dash off in a second or two. I wouldn't use the ritual magic rules for any thing quick, even if the rules allow me to do so.
