How to avoid group failed oaths effecting the group’s orlog (luck, karma)
It is thought that in group made oaths that if the person making the oath does not accomplish what they have oathed to do that the negative impact of this shall effect all people that were at that ritual group at that moment; and yes this is what does happen by default. Yet also it is possible to make this not be so. The way around this is for the one making the oath to redirect the results of the oath to only effect them. Thus after they have made their oath they need only say something of this nature:
“May all effects from this oath, good or bad, be only mine.”
If the person making the oath says this after making the oath then if they don’t accomplish what they have oathed to do the bad orlog (luck, karma) from a failed oath will only effect them, not any other people present.
