For walking in the Spirit Realm, this root when brewed into the correct tea will take you to the Astral Plane.
A Shaman can use it to reach The Ancestors, bless Tribe members, make or remove curses, and even undergo further spiritual trials.
Perhaps a powerful enough Shaman will contact elder beings if they dare…?
Any Tribe member may use the Medicine Root in certain special hunts or events. Also used to help in adventures.
