Totems: Boar, Part IV


Boar shamans and other cleric-types who call upon the totem gain access to certain spells. Otherwise, they follow the guidelines of totemic magic (link). 

BOAR SHAMANISM
1st Level Spells (d8)
1. Boar Companion: as Animal Companion (D), but must be a single boar. And though it may not be pleasant, it can be ridden.
2. Boar's Heart: as Remove Fear (reversible), but only if the shaman is cornered or charging.
3. Detect Pleasures
as Detect Magic, except that it senses the presence of food, treasure, and other niceties at quadruple the usual range.
4. Gorge Away Light Wounds: as Cure Light Wounds, but only works on those who partake of food and/or other pleasures afterwards.
5. Hog's Mist: as Obscuring Mist (D), but also emits a hog odor, alerting predators that there is boar-kind inside.
6. Porcine Protection: as Protection from Evil, but only works in areas where food, treasure, and/or other comforts are available.
7. Squeaker's Constitution: as Strength*, but confers only 1/2 the bonus, and it is applied to the recipient's Constitution, rather than Strength.
8. Swine's Purify Food & Drink: as Purify Food and Drink, but those who partake will certainly eat like pigs.
