Q: How is the size of the payment for an amulet determined?

A: There are no standard prices, every given case being treated absolutely individually. Usually the price is based on several different factors, such as: severity of the problem that must be resolved, the time for preparatory actions and the time of writing itself, the quantity and quality of the materials used, the generation of correct conditions for writing the amulet (for example, in some cases the scribe is obligated to fast, in others to achieve complete ritual purification), efforts the scribe must undertake in order to get into a particular mental mood and so forth. Prices can vary widely in this regard.
