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!
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.
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
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.
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.
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 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 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.
(i'll post others if I think them up)
