(ritual); 5 minutes/mana

As an action, animals can understand your speech and you gain the ability to decipher their noises and motions for the duration. The knowledge and awareness of many animals is limited by their intelligence, but at a minimum, animals can give you information about nearby locations and creatures, including whatever they can perceive or have perceived within the past day. You might be able to persuade an animal to perform a small favor for you, at the GM’s discretion.
