The ritual binds a dimensional shambler to carry out a single task directed by the caster. When this ritual is initiated, the dimensional shambler cannot attempt to depart the presence of the caster by any means unless the ritual is interrupted. When the ritual is complete, the target can negate the control with a successful Will save.
This ritual is often found in the same tomes that contain the call dimensional shambler ritual, though not always.
