It is not like popping a Good Berry in your mouth or having a Cure Light Wounds Spell cast over you or being washed with water and bandaging your wounds!
Rain Dance is a Ceremony that cannot be interrupted, so you want to get it done when everything is relatively peaceful and no threat of battle!
No hourly limit or daily limit or weekly limit, just that the wounded must freely participate in the Rain Dance ceremony, which does not mean that your character is abandoning his or her deity!
However, that is where the Role Play comes in, it is available, but if the Paladin for example feels like he is compromising his faith, then he might not choose to participate and would need healing from some other Spell, and the Shaman also gets a +5 boost from Atira every time he casts a healing spell, so there you go!
[So even if a 1 is rolled for the Cure Light Wounds and only 1 Hit Point is restored, +5 more is added to the healing of Hit Points for a total minimum of 6 Hit Points restored by the Healing Spell of Cure Light Wounds!]
Just like the Eye Patches, where some of the characters put them on and some did not put them on!
Your choice if your character participates in the Rain Dance ceremony, or relies upon some other form of healing!
Remember: Casters have a certain set number of Spells that they may only cast Once per Day!
So out of 4 Spells, they do not get to cast one of those 2 or more times a day, they only get to cast them once per day, so they have to choose their casting wisely!

Including Tohmas we have four that need healing so the ceremony would heal all and save the other healing spells.
It can also be a social bonding event for the group. Those not needing healing can join in to support the others.
I've used this before in one of Hammer's other games and my ceremony is not one of those jumping and spinning things around a fire like from old western movies. The dance is done in a circle but only Tohmas chants to his diety while the other sprinkle water to represent Altira's tears for her children. So noone else is worshiping Altira, just Tohmas, they are only showing respect which all deities would allow.
So now we all know about the "Rain Dance". It's most likely the most powerful thing Tohmas can do. So PROTECT THE HEALERS!
With all of us in good shape it's time to check out the Happy Waters. There is something there so let's just be prepared.
BTW, how do we increase our ability numbers? I'd like to find a way to get a higher dex. I was wondering if Tohmas got Crow to help train him in dex skills as we travel what would it take to gain 1-2 dex points?
You would have to get a Tome that increases Dexterity!
Actually, without revealing any secrets, those who survive and make it back to the Toothless Dragon Tavern will have the opportunity to gear up (besides leveling up to 2nd Level when you return!) and there will be plenty of choices, since there is no telling how long it will take you to return after you all decide where to explore after returning from Tagea!
