Description

It has the hazy octarine sparkle of a magical talisman.

Whistles and fruitbats

A witch may bond the whistle to her fruitbat, by using the syntax

cast Granny Benedict's Bond of Loyalty with whistle for <fruitbat>
Once this has been done, the fruitbat will return from any nearby room to the witch's location when the whistle is "blow"n.
