  • Note: The attempt may also result in the shaman taking the affliction into his own body. (Unknown chance.)
    • Status terror.gifStatus terror.gifTerrorised Terrorised
      Successful: There's nothing better than fear to vanquish terror. You remove your Shaman mask and gently blow a home-made hallucinogenic powder onto their face, to induce a sleep-walking state. Your tete-a-tete quickly provokes "pavor nocturnus". When they reawaken [Citizen] seems to have been relieved from their terrorized state.
      Failure: However, simply seeing this citizen in such a state of utter terror has terrorized you.
      Successful: You unsheath your sacred knife and begin to «prepare» following a well-practised sequence of ritualistic movements. The energy flow guides you and without hesitation you make an incision at the base of the infected limb. The decontamination process is underway, albeit slowly.
      Successful but infection is transfered to shaman: You unsheath your sacred knife and begin to «prepare» following a well-practised sequence of ritualistic movements. The energy flow guides you and without hesitation you make an incision at the base of the infected limb. The decontamination process is underway, albeit slowly. Suddenly an infected blister bursts. Your already scorched skin quickly breaks out in open sores and infectious germs decide to make them their home.
      Failure: That's impossible... you don't feel anything, no energy, no flow to guide you. The risk of killing [Citizen] is too great.
      Successful: You unsheath your sacred knife and begin to «prepare» following a well-practised sequence of ritualistic movements. The energy flow guides you and without hesitation you make an incision just beside the liver. As a clear liquid leaks from their freshly mutilated body, [Citizen] is freed from the clutches of alcohol.
      Failure: ???
      Successful: You unsheath your sacred knife and begin to «prepare» following a well-practised sequence of ritualistic movements. The energy flow guides you and without hesitation you make an incision just beside the right lung. Try as you may to resist the forces guiding you, you cannot stop your blade from plunging deep into [Citizen], causing a clear liquid to leak from their freshly mutilated body.
      Failure: That's impossible... you don't feel anything, no energy, no flow to guide you. The risk of killing [Citizen] is too great.

Election[edit]

In distant regions, the citizens can vote for the Shaman in the Electoral Office. This can be accessed in the Citizens page. Any player who does not cast a vote will have their vote decided randomly.
