totem spirit

Many cultures that have a closer relationship with nature are able to commune with nature spirits. Some are able to bond with these spirits and in so doing gain skills associated with their animal spirit. Once an individual’s totem spirit is awakened, that animal becomes their totem for life.

Once per week, the heroes can channel the power of her totem spirit as a move action and gain a +5 sacred bonus on any associated skill check, OR use wild empathy to communicate with creatures of the animal species related to her totem spirit.

Recently, members of The Alliance had their totem spirits awoken during an encounter with some Zenji spirit dancers.
