Earthdawn - Who Really Kaers?
The adept develops a bond of trust with an animal, making an Animal Bond Test against the animal’s Social Defense. If successful, the animal takes a Neutral “live and let live” attitude toward him. The adept may make additional test to further improve the animal’s Attitude, but must spend at least one week with the animal between tests, treating it well during that time. Each subsequent improvement requires an additional Result Level on the Animal Bond Test. Once the animal’s Attitude increases to Loyal, it willingly takes risks for the adept and expecs appropriate rewards for doing so.
