Arousal Ceremony (Level 2)

By Jessica McGeary, for the People of the Law tribe.

Don't be rude; this is the name for a behavior shown by the wild dogs. Before hunting, the leader of the hunt paces back and forth in front of the pack, making assorted howl-type noises, and they do a lot of nipping and yelping and stuff. Everyone gets in the same mood to go hunting, and the dogs then go and pull down their prey. For the People, the rite is much the same in Lycaon form; they use Call of the Wyld a lot, and the pack shares the Gift: Sense of the Prey. In Homid form it's much the same but theres a bit of singing and general mood-whipping chanting involved. Gift is still the same.
