Does anyone know if it lists anywhere the cost of paying someone to assist you in casting a ritual or summoning a spirit? There's got to be people who do this for a living, but I'm not finding it listed anywhere. Did they list it in SR4?

Having problems getting your mana up?

Are your spirits less than spectacular?

Then maybe WIZAGRA™ may be right for you.

Talk to your Witch Doctor about WIZAGRA™

WIZAGRA™ is not for everyone and common side effects may include Physical Drain, Overwhelming sense of Omnipotence and Astral Hazing.

Caution: Stop taking WIZAGRA™ if you experience non-bound summonings lasting more than a day or uncontrollable Astral Projections.

Joking aside, this will probably be more at the GM's discretion than a flat rate table as there are so many variables to consider.

well, per the official 5e guidelines, going 1v1 against a great dragon is worth what, 6k nuyen or something like that?

the comparatively low risks involved in ritual magic should mean that highly skilled characters with extremely rare skillsets will basically do almost anything that doesn't have a high chance of severe physical drain for 5 bucks (USD, not nuyen) plus medical expenses. considering you can use reagents to reduce ritual drain, it's cheaper to pay for those than to pay for even a trip to a massage therapist to relieve their sore muscles after taking any drain at all, so... spend lots of money on reagents, and you can have a highly skilled magician do your bidding for a mere pittance, i figure (IMG:style_emoticons/default/nyahnyah.gif)

(note: if you're not crazy enough to use the official guidelines, this amount may not be valid).
