Ritual circles are a mechanic in Fear & Hunger 2: Termina which allows the player to benefit from various divine effects, or to increase their affinity with different Gods. The Occult Grimoires book explains their usage.

The player has draw the sigil of any given God in the circle to activate it, but it needs to be the right type otherwise the circle is wasted.

How to use

For Asymmetric and Perfection Circles, the player will need the Skin Bible of each respective God in their inventory, as well as a piece of Chalk to draw on the circle. If the wrong symbol is drawn, nothing happens - it will also waste the circle, as it is not possible to erase it and try again.

A matching symbol, when drawn by the player, will raise their affinity to that God and open up access to their skills in the Hexen. Premade Rher circles will not grant affinity to the player.

Imperfect Circles work differently, requiring the player to ritually offer specific items to interact with the New Gods.
