An example of a totem

A totem is a pre-made structure that can be spawned once per map, made individually by any shaman who can use hard mode (has saved over 1,000 mice). These can range from anything such as a red anchor, an airship, or a bunch of cannon balls. These structures can only use a select amount of objects that are available to a shaman on a map, although not necessarily using the same constraints (red anchors don't need to be in the center of a board / attached to a board at all.

You edit a totem (after unlocking hard mode) by clicking the little feather icon to the right of the emote buttons in the bottom center of the screen.

Creating a totem[]

To make a totem you must have saved over 1000 mice. Click on the feather next to the help/rules and click on "Edit your totem". This will take you to map 444, where you can create your totem. You can use up to 20 objects (but only one world anchor) in the creation of your totem. In the totem creation map, joints are spawned in the same way as other shaman objects instead of using hotkeys. The whole totem editor is not accessible if not saved at least 1000 mice, and the gold feather doesn't appear in interface.

Currently once an object is added into the totem it cannot be removed. A player must reset the map to design another totem or add items onto it. The shaman mouse (the designer) is immobile on the map but can summon items at any place, thus it's no concern of movement problem for the mouse.

Using a totem[]

To spawn a totem click on the blue feather (In most situations press 2 also works) in the items section. Totems can't be used in shaman fight maps, catch the mouse maps (Map 108) and maps with conjuration.
