Casting Instructions for 'Storm of the Dog'
First of all, be warned that the first few times you transform it could be a little painful. But after you practice this spell a few times, it should come quick and easy, and you won't need a candle. Now you'll need to space out a time that will give you at least 7 minutes of spellcasting and transformation time, it is your first time casting this spell, for your first time will take a little longer (approx. 2-5 minutes) and your canine-self will need some cool down time to get used to your new form (at least until you change back).
The first thing you'll need to do is get into a canine-like mood. Think of the trees and the grass. Think of the wonderful scents of the wild and your own backyard or current location. Think of your own territory (Ex. Your room or bedspace, or maybe if you have your own house) and your Pack members (or friends, but think of them as a Pack). Or if you are a Lone Wolf, just focus mainly on your Territorial instinct. Now think of prey. Think of the joy of the hunt, the pleasure of the chase, and the satisfaction of the food afterward. This might take up to a minute.
Now sit down (if you haven't already) with your legs spread out and the candle lit before you. Now you have entered Casting Mode. Do NOT cast anymore spells while the candle is lit or in transformation, or you could get seriously injured or worse. Now sway your hands gracefully over the fire. Chant the following:
"Fire here dancing before me
Please dance this way to hear my plea.
I have a request for you;
I wish to run against the wind and taste morning dew.
I want to be a canine ever free
For I believe this is my Destiny"
Now pull your hands back away from the candle. Your hands will now start to feel floppy and duller, your tailbone the need to stretch out and your nose the longing to sniff the earth (or tile floor, whatever the case may be) and stalk some prey.
"Thank you for granting me this almighty power,
For now I can leap to the highest tower.
I can smell danger from far away,
And pull the heaviest sleigh.
And now my keen intellect will come,
My new power has just begun."
Now you will feel your eyes alter and change, and our transformation will come. Blow out the candle and cling to the earth as you howl. You'll feel you amulet glow (not hot, cold nor both) so you know it has responded. This spell has a 20% chance it will work the first time, and if you don't transform, don't worry. The spell will have still given you enhanced canine abilities, and you will still be able to try after a full moon. Congratulations; you are now a Storm of the Dog Chanter. Now if you did transform, it may take a second for you to come to your senses, and you may pass out from 5-10 seconds, and your clothes will have disappeared and will reappear when you change back.
To turn back after some fun time running around, stop and close your eyes. Growl a light, unthreatening growl and wait for your amulet to glow again. Tell it you want to change to human form, and slowly your growl will become more of a hum, and you will shapeshift into a human after 5-10 seconds. Congratulations! You have fully transformed from a human to a wolf to a human!
