Obscure Spirit Magics of Balazar

Hi I have a few new spirit magic spells which I believe would be part of the Balazaring hunter tradition. They are not Foundchild spells as such but are taught by many of the shamans that are part of the Foundchild tradition.

The spirits which teach these spells are not common in areas which are urban or have significant agriculture, and though not uncommon in Balazar would be considered exotic in many locations of Central Genertela.

This allows the caster emit a call which is undetectable by normal means but will summon his dog (or other beast)which he already  has a master/partner relationship with. The dog will know that his master wants him and where he is.

For the duration of the spell the character does not emit a clear scent, and if hunting will not scare prey animals due to the presence of the scent.
