Summons a whirlwind to fight on your behalf.


Performing this ritual causes a whirlwind to form, its composition depending on where it is summoned (There are at least 50 different types, ranging from leaves, to cat fur, to metal fragments, to pure faith, to the good old dust devils). After recent changes, the number of devils you can summon has been capped on two. Dust devils need to be "order"ed to engage in battle, otherwise they will just passively watch. In the same wave of changes to dust devils, the amount of xp they take from kills has been reduced, but it's still significant. Dust devils are unable to protect and mediocre at dealing damage, so their use is limitted. It has also been proven that fa.ri.of.ar and fa.ri.de.ar bear some relevance in the offensive and defensive capabilities of the devils. The progression of the sizes is: Tiny, small, average, large, huge, gigantic, colossal, enormous, humungous, and unbelievably large. For more info on the old dust devils, read the article by Thalasso.

This ritual summons a dust devil to follow your orders. It will attack if ordered, though not the servants of gods. It will not protect or defend the priest summoning it. A priest can only control two dust devils at a time. Performing this ritual requires use of a holy symbol consecrated to your deity.


> perform dust devil
You find it more difficult to perform dust devil because you are a creator.  However, this is mitigated by the fact that
you are a creator.
You raise your hands, and swirl them about.
You speak the holy word of Fish.
You summon a dust devil.
Use "order" to command it.
The wind picks up a bit and starts swirling.  Dust and debris in the area come together to form an unbelievably large
whirlwind of leaves.
