While looking over Totems, I pondered how some spiritbonds to unusual animals and spirits would be and what effect they would give. I decided to put this thread up for kicks. Add your own if you get any ideas!

Frog

SPIRITBOND FROG
SPIRITRELEASE FROG
CROAK <target>
SQUAT

Bond to Brother Frog and he will give you his strong larynx, letting you croak like the best of his species. Your croak can be targetted at an enemy, damaging them and surpassing their shield. You may also squat in place, making sure no one removes you from your comfortable location, this is further enhanced if you are within a lake.

Cow
SPIRITBOND COW
SPIRITRELEASE COW

Bonding to cow will give you enhanced stockiness and weight, making you harder to push over. You may experience an unforeseen side-effect with cow, as you stand on the highway and adventurers running too fast will bump into you.

Rat

SPIRITBOND RAT
SPIRITRELEASE RAT
SQUEAK

Bonding with Rat gives you the skills to see all the small hiding places, letting you notice secret exits more often. You will feel a hankering for scraps, especially cheese, and will find food to give you more sustenance. You may send forth Rat's squeaks to call forth the vermin of an area to appear.

Rooster

SPIRITBOND ROOSTER
SPIRITRELEASE ROOSTER
SIGNAL
COCKFIGHT <player>

Mighty Rooster will lend you his call, allowing you to call out to your area for signs of danger, note that upon sunrise, you will also feel the urge to release his call. If another forest-dweller has bonded with Rooster, you can challenge him to a cockfight for supremacy, earning you esteem should you win.

Cat
SPIRITBOND CAT
SPIRITRELEASE CAT
PURR
NIGHTSIGHT

Though Cat's children have fallen on hard times and now live within the confines of civilization and 'homes', her power is still yours to call. Cat is a cunning and yet curious spirit, and these skills will be made apparent in you. You will find yourself able to stalk at night as well as day, seeing clearly your targets. You will also find yourself dealing more damage to vermin, slaying them for your meal. Cat is very flexible and cautious and should you find yourself falling from a great height, you will land easily on your feet with little damage. Finally, as Cat can be quite the charmer, you can send out a purr towards your enemies, making them unable but to love you and forget your pass sins. Use her strengths well.

Elephant
SPIRITBOND ELEPHANT
SPIRITRELEASE ELEPHANT
STAMPEDE <direction>
TRUNKSMACK <target>

Elephant is a graceful and serene spirit, but when driven to anger can become quite the danger. When bonded with Elephant, you can become roused into anger and stampede into a direction, attempting to knock down any fool trying to block your way, furthermore, if you really wish to get your point across, you can smack another with the full force of elephant's famous trunk, sending them sprawling.

Breeze
SPIRITBOND BREEZE
SPIRITRELEASE BREEZE

Breeze is a joyous and free-spirited spirit, known for her love of adventure and gentle caress. While bonded, you will find yourself less likely to get winded by running too fast.

    SPIRITBOND TARDIGRADE
    SPIRITRELEASE TARDIGRADE

    HIDE
    SURVIVE

    The Tardigrade, or water bear, is a tiny and mysterious creature able to overcome any adversity. When its spirit touches you, you may hunker down and resolve to SURVIVE the next attack. If the next blow you endure would have killed you, you will instead be left with 1 HP and a two-second prismatic barrier. Use it well.
    The Necromentate's mind opens to you, and a grotesque, demonic figure appears in your mind's eye, screaming in torment:
    "THE DEMON LORDS CAN NEVER TRULY BE KILLED - GREAT IS THEIR POWER."


    You shock a platinum-coloured geomycus with tales of terror bestowed on villages who don't follow Magnagora.
    A platinum-coloured geomycus slaps her knee and declares that, by the gods, Ptoma Hive should follow the Grand Empire of Magnagora after all!
    Shouts rise up from Ptoma Hive, as its denizens loudly pledge themselves to the Grand Empire of Magnagora.

    SPIRITBOND MOLERAT

    -1 Charisma, -1 Endurance, -1 Size. Doubles writhing speed, immune to slickness and disfigure/disloyalty.
    If I'm not good enough for Lusternia, then it is no longer good enough for me.

    Rainbow

    SPIRITBOND RAINBOW
    SPIRITRELEASE RAINBOW


    Mother Rainbow is a flavorful and artistic spirit, enjoying the projection of many vibrant hues that came to be loved by many of the Fourth Circle. Once bonded, Mother Rainbow will splash you with her talents, making you sparkle and disorient your enemies. If you have summoned a leprechaun, they will be inspired by your sparkling self, hauling more gold than usual.

    SPIRITBOND MOUNTAIN
    SPIRITRELEASE MOUNTAIN

    Great Grandfather Mountain is unmovable. Once bonded, you will be unable to move and be unable to be moved from the room. You will also get +5 strength at the cost of -5 to dexterity.

    Cloud

    SPIRITBOND CLOUD
    SPIRITRELEASE CLOUD

    Father Cloud is an aloof and rather lazy spirit, caring only to float along upon Breeze's currents. Bonding to Cloud will grant you such peaceful aloofness, making you regenerate your endurance and willpower as you stare up at the heavens.

    SPIRITBOND SALAMANDER
    SPIRITRELEASE SALAMANDER
    DROPTAIL <direction>

    Brother Salamander is a real slippery fellow. Foes who touch your skin will be afflicted with a random poison. Also, you will slowly regenerate bodily wounds (even missing limbs!) while in water, and you can DROPTAIL to quickly scurry out of the room, leaving your tail behind as a distraction.
    The drone, the whistle, the thundrous sound;
    It seared their eyes, it shook the ground.
    One hundred thousand voices lift,
    While ashes like dirty snowfall drift.

    The clouds of purple glowing gas,
    The tiny sun is rising fast.
    Your star...
    Is on the rise.

    SPIRITBOND SLOTH

    Brother Sloth is a percieved to be a lazy creature, but nothing could be further from the truth! Infact he.... sod it, it's too much effort to explain. You just regenerate willpower faster when meditating and recover from tiredness quicker when you're asleep ok?
    Only if when you bond you get a room effect for "dun dun dun!!!!"

    SPIRITBOND BEE

    Sister Bee is a truly steadfast spirit, and you can share in Her due diligence. Bonding with this spirit will allow you to occasionally resist attempts to knock you off-balance or equilibrium.

    SPIRITBOND FERRET
    SPIRITRELEASE FERRET

    WARDANCE

    Sister Ferret is quick and lithe. With Her aide loose coins, and anything else you find and can carry will quickly be yours. The urge to hide your new found treasures, in a certain spot, placed just right will be hard to over come. When excited She will also help you wardance, as long as you don't mind the musky smell.

    Medieval guided missile: strap a case of burning tar to a cat. Clearly, this technology must be utilized somehow IG.

    Spiritbond lemming Known as nature's survivalist, bonding to brother lemming will show all your allies where you go safety follows. Use the LETSGO command to make all mutual allies and commune-mates in the room to follow you. What's the worst that could happen?
    Can we turn LETSGO into a proper emote?

    Knowing nothing could go wrong, you pump your fist in the air and go, "Follow me guys, I know the way!"
