I can't see how much xp it costs to learn a battle magic spell. Anyone know how much it costs?

Heroes Companion says Battle Magic spells are rituals, so I'd apply the rules for rituals from page 157 of the rulebook and make them cost 50 XP each.

Other ritual spells can only be learnt by Archmages and have to be found or developed. I wouldn't let the player just find a teacher and learn all the spells. It says Battle Magic was "developed by wizard kings of old" so it could be a lost style they have to piece together through their own research and expeditions. Or maybe they find a teacher after some difficulty, who can only pass on the special skill and one spell.

Actually that has to be a typo in the rulebook, 50 XP is too cheap for Archmage rituals. Maybe it was supposed to be 150 XP?
