Dust Devil


Dust Devil — Summons a whirlwind to fight on your behalf.


This ritual summons a dust devil to follow your orders. It will attack if ordered, though not the servants of gods. It will not protect or defend you. The number of minions you can control at one time depends on your skills. Performing this ritual requires use of a holy symbol consecrated to your deity.

Once summoned, the dust devil can be commanded using either 'ask' or 'order', depending on your preferred tone of voice.
