Their objective is to gather information for whoever summons them. They’re faithful to their summoners and invisible to everyone else, which helps them move about the world.
Casting Instructions for ‘Summon a Watcher’
To call a Watcher, visit a large field at dusk. It should not be in use for growing crops. The best is one with tall grass in it that still leaves the dirt accessible. For each Watcher you want to summon (you can have more than one), make a mound of dirt in the field. It doesnt need to be massive, but make it at least as tall as your hand. Bury a dolls eye in each mound like a seed. Spill a few drops of blood into water, the mound. The blood allows the Watchers understand who theyll be serving. Once this is completed, you are finished with the first part of the ritual. Go home and enjoy the rest of your night. For the best results, return to the fields the next day before noon. A gray hand will be sticking straight out of the mound like a flower. Grasp the hand and pull. Your Watcher will come up extremely easily. Please note that you do not need to go back for your Watcher; it will dig itself out eventually and come to your home. It is highly suggested that you help it along, however, since this reveals the Watcher your good intentions. Once your Watcher is out of the floor, congratulations! You may now tell it to go wherever you want. You can use it to spy on people, or send it to a foreign country to learn about the culture. Every day you will just wake up with the knowledge that it has accumulated for you. I said theres no fatal consequences for wrong moves. Thats true, but you should be mindful that you treat your Watcher well. It won’t ever ask you for food, clothing, shelter, or anything, but it is advised that you give these items anyway. At the very least, give it some time off. A couple of days a month are enough. If your Watcher gets disgruntled, you will start to forget small things during the day-nothing important, just large enough to cause minor annoyances. Then will come the nightmares. Theyll be just bad enough to make sleeping disagreeable. After a few weeks of this, the nightmares and memory loss will abruptly cease. You won’t wake up with new information. Should this happen, youll know that your Watcher became so fed up with your ingratitude that it left. If for any reason you would like to eliminate your Watcher or no longer require its services, write your first and last name on a chalkboard and erase it one letter at a time. When the last letter is erased, you will not get any new information, nor will you get a penalty for letting your Watcher go.
