Totem - Transforms an item into a being.


When performed upon an item of significance to your deity, it will summon a creature that protects you. The exact item and creature vary from god to god. To perform this ritual you will need a holy symbol, and you may only command one totem at a time.

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