World of Sharr
Shamanism teaches a Wyser how to correctly find and identify the various spirits who inhabit the world. It is important to note here that spirit in no way refers to the physical manifestations of the dead known as ghosts. A spirit is, in fact, the manifestation of something greater, an idea or a sensation, the embodiment of a specific location of power or importance, or the living will of a group’s identity. Shamen are capable of brokering with, or sometimes directly controling, these spirits. Their powers are wide and varied in both power and nature.
Though oftentimes the work a spirit does for a Shaman is performed on a level not commonly percieved by others, it is possible for a Wyser to bring a spirit into the material world so that it might directly do its business in one of two ways: be either allowing the spirit to temporarily posses his or her body, or by infusing the spirit with sufficient amounts of manna so that it is powerful enough to physically project itself.
