Im not totally sure where The Staircase Ritual originated; its credited on most creepypasta repositories to someone going by the name CousinSpookyNoodles, but the site on which it was found is never specified. In any event, though, this one is long and involved, so its best not to undertake it unless you can devote at least two days to it including an uninterrupted 13-hour stretch for the second half. Its not quite an exorcism, but if youve got something weird going on in your home, itll help contain it by banishing it to the first floor. It also places a series of obstacles either slowing down or stopping whatever might be plaguing you from making its way from the first floor to the second. Youll have to face it eventually, though, so be prepared for a fight.
As always, play at your own risk.

The instructions detailed here are designed for a home in which the occupants sleep on the second floor. If, however, you sleep on the first floor, simply reverse the instructions that is, begin the ritual on the top step and work your way towards the bottom, rather than starting at the bottom and working your way to the top.
If you do not have a staircase, you may still perform the ritual using a long hallway. In the case of a hallway, mark the division between each step at regular intervals with a line of salt. Not NOT perform this ritual in a room. Do NOT perform it outside. Do NOT perform it in any small, enclosed spaces.
The Main Event does not necessarily have to be performed on the day immediately following the Prelude, but its recommended that it be performed as soon as possible. The more trips you or any other occupants of your home take up or down the staircase, the weaker the twelve obstacles in place will become; furthermore, depending on the strength of your unwelcome guest, they may not hold for more than a few nights to begin with.
If, after the Prelude, you return to the staircase to find any of the objects disturbed, do NOT proceed. Similarly, if you wake during the night or have nightmares while you sleep, do NOT proceed. If anything out of the ordinary occurs between the time when you complete the Prelude and begin the Main Event, DO NOT PROCEED. Instead, perform the following:
To Abort the Ritual:
Place a ring of salt around each item on the staircase, around your bed, and around the bed of any other occupants in your home. Leave them overnight. In the morning, remove the objects from your home.
Destroy them by any means necessary.
