A nonhostile Small or larger natural beast, such as a dog, horse, camel, or elephant, must remain within 5 squares of you while you perform this ritual. Upon the ritual’s completion, the creature’s size increases by one category. This change does not alter the beast’s statistics, though its Strength is considered 8 higher for the purpose of determining how much the creature can carry, drag, or lift. In addition, the beast gains a +4 power bonus to Strength checks (but not to attack rolls or damage rolls).
The ritual’s effect ends if the beast dies, at which point it reverts to its normal size.
