Voice for the Ravaged

"You speak of suffering? Look around you. Can you not see that the world cries in agony, too?"

Prerequisite: Shaman or primal guardian theme

The primal spirits all bear scars from the ancient conflict that led to the world’s devastation. Many vanished, consumed by destructive magic. Those who remained either retreated to the few remaining havens or turned to elemental power to sustain themselves in the bitter aftermath. It is to the ravaged, the broken, and corrupted that you turn to wage your war against tyranny and right the world’s course once more. You give voice to their grievances, guiding their wrath to destroy the enemy you have vowed to fight.
    You have become the ally of these twisted primal spirits, who allow you to wield not only their strength but their very essence in your crusade against the despoilers. The spirits answer your commands, lending both primal and elemental power to your attacks. Their anger lets you drive your enemies to turn on one another, while at the same time sheltering your allies from harm or infusing them with elemental strength. The spirits are vengeful, and you are that vengeance personified. The most revealing aspect to your heightened connection is the ability to bind your spirit with your enemies, so that even as your companions close, your spirit rends the soul within.
