I hava a query about this sentence:
With the Spirit Rune affmity comes the ability to hear, see, and communicate with spirits, although in and of itself it grants no special persuasive powers in dealing with them.
I do not understand if an initiate can search a spirit himself and deal with it to do a task in the future. Or is a bound spirit in a charm the unique method to control a spirit (for an initiate, I mean)? Must he negotiate with a shaman of his tribe to get a spirit, or can he travel to found one and bargain with it himself?
