i ve got your product and it is a great pleasure to play a ritualist.
rituals are more powerful than revelevation of the oracle per example but why it doesn't exist a feat like : extra ritual giving a free ritual ?
thank you and go on ;)
Glad you're enjoying the class!
There's no additional ritual known feat to maintain balance and increase choice.
Some rituals were designed to be less applicable but more powerful than others so that players could choose between shining brightly (Higher Calling) or shining frequently (Siphoned Power). Racking up lots of rituals known could result in a character with very powerful solutions to a wide array of problems, exceeding the power curve and potentially marginalizing other party members (especially other support characters, who we strive to encourage rather than discourage). It also seems like it would present an optimal strategy as I struggle to think of any feat that could compete with its effectiveness or fun (especially at low levels), essentially reducing the player's choices - you begin with 2 rituals but can't choose a feat at level 1 (or whatever level we set the feat requirement to).
That said, I can imagine situations where a ritualist might not know enough rituals (very high magic campaigns, a table full of power gamers, build choices ill-suited to the setting, etc.), but I think the appropriate solution in those cases would be granting an additional ritual known as a default class feature rather than taxing a feat for the same effect.
