Casting Messages


Carefully, so as not to startle it, you let your mind settle and slowly fade into the foreground of its awareness, divining the terrain.
After sizing up what makes it tick, you begin to convoke the threads of your thoughts towards things that have a certain innate greatness like sturdy comfortable armor, a large light backpack, and a well balanced sword.
You subtly manipulate your mind, enchanting it with visions of greateur and priming it to believe it could make a talisman, too, if only people would Believe.


Entranced, your mind perks up and looks around for someone to Believe in its greatness.
