- This article describes the Mwangi philosophy of shamanism. For the shaman hybrid class, please see shaman.
The shamanistic Mwangi people of the Mwangi Expanse believe the jungle is home to a myriad of spirits—those of trees, animals, and the earth. Shamans believe that they can communicate with these spirits and influence them into helping and protecting their tribe. The rituals shamans use to achieve this vary widely from tribe to tribe.
The darker side of Shamanism, known as juju, can have less benign effects, and is practiced by the sinister Bekyar people.
