Minor Veils

This ruleset for Akashic Mysteries introduces a new category of veils that fill in some of the gaps left by the ruleset’s lack of a cantrip-level ability for veilweavers. These rules help to diversify the abilities of veilweavers at low levels with new utility abilities that don’t require them to give up their core veils.
