Transforming yourself is entirely possible and there are no especial restrictions on it compared to performing it on someone else, and yes, it makes sense (both fictionally and mechanically) for it to be slightly easier—though it's not nearly as much easier as you might hope. It's actually remarkably straightforward to work up a generic template for these ...

No, it does not work quite like that. Firstly, 4th edition does not allow multiple enchantments to be placed on an item, you can only ever have a single enchantment on an item (although you can upgrade that enchantment, see below). Secondly Transfer Enchantment (from Adventurer's Vault pg 199) specifically states: You transfer the magical qualities ...

Below is the Mage listing: Ritual Casting You can cast any mage spell as a ritual if you have the spell in your spellbook and the spell has a ritual version.

The Rules The only rules text I can find related to a general ritual's duration is from the 'Duration' description on page 299 of the Player's Handbook: This entry shows how long a ritual's effects last after the completion of the ritual.

I think there are some misunderstandings in how the rituals work. There are no level 0 magical items. There are normal items (non-magical and without level), and there are magical items (with a minimal level of 1). This means you cannot have a magical item without level. Item level comes from the enchantment, not from the base item. A Leather Armor of ...

Relics and Rituals by Sword and Sorcery. Chapter III of the book is entitled Ritual Magic and Chapter IV is entitled True Rituals. An excerpt: Beyond the dusty books and the quick gestures and the sonorous words that convey the power of spellcasters, there exists another level, one that rewards an even deeper understanding of magic. Most magicians ...

Multiple Disks? Yes! This post from wizards.com is helpful. As long as you have the required components and time to do so, then yes, get dat lewt with dem disks. There is nothing in the ritual that says you're limited to one, but you should look at the ritual costs. It appears that the designers were trying to rely on ritual components to limit rituals.
