Re: OOC discussion
also, spoiler, you two are gonna be the world's smallest Wu.

two points:
1) Nushi. only Kiku put dots in the background for this spirit patron, but I believe you both benefit from it. Guessing a Yin spirit... so question for Kiku is what more specific flavor and what level of difficulty of duties demanded by the spirit (minor, serious or critical)?

2) once the Wu is formed, each of you will have a bond with the other, like a Sabbat vinculum rating. calculating that now:
     * Kiku's bond to Reiko (5): "You respect the individual and help him out so long as itís no huge risk or bother."
     * Reiko's bond to Kiku (2): "You have a minor sense of kinship toward the individual, but youíre not going to go out of your way to help him unless somethingís in it for you."

Obviously, you can relate to one another however, but that is the minimum level of connection you have to them mystically.

I think most of the rituals are simply a matter of being taught, and dont take exp.

Yes you just have to be taught and have rituals dots >= level.  If you dont have enough dharma then the difficulty is +1

the jade ritual is level 3

I could in theory learn the level 2 one but i dont currently know it.
