Note: This is a hengeyokai rite only.
Rite of the Harmonious JourneyEdit
This rite is performed over shapeshifters who wish to form a mountain sentai. The rite usually takes place under moonlight and involves the ritemaster ritually naming each participant by direction, element and task. At the close of this, the ritemaster leads the group into the Umbra, just as if treading the mountain's shoulders. There they journey to the desired totem spirit's court and petition its patronage. Once a totem spirit has given its blessing, the sentai emerges into the physical world once more.
This rite is only performed to form mountain sentai, and the characters involved must purchase the Totem background. Otherwise the group is a wave sentai at best.
