You persuade an intelligent creature to join you.

Proselytize is a skill which allows its users to attempt to recruit creatures to their side.

Using the skill takes 1000 action cost, a full turn.

When the player uses it, they will be asked for a direction, then attempt to proselytize the creature standing next to them in that direction. A successful usage will convince that creature to join the proselytizer indefinitely. Only 1 creature can be proselytized at a time.

Proselytize is an Ego stat based attack that is defended against by Mental Armor. However, a failed proselytize attempt will not make creatures hostile, unlike failing an attempt to Beguile.

Unlike beguiling, it is possible to proselytize creatures that have Mental shields.

Proselytize is learnable via the water ritual from legendary Mechanimists; this includes Eschelstadt ii.pngEschelstadt II, High Priest of the Stilt, who is guaranteed to exist at the Ovw six day stilt.pngSix Day Stilt.
