[ Ganesha ]

 [ General Information    : ] Ganesha is a serene and potent deity who, while in no way inimical, can be difficult to obtain
   assistance from, as he is reported to disregard most invocations.  Obtaining said assistance is generally considered to be
   worth the effort, though, as the aid of the Remover of Obstacles can be invaluable. Ganesha is known to grant a
   brahmanda-prakasa, a cosmic aura of high potency, to those who offer him a kazar blade.

Spoiler warning: information below includes details, such as solutions to puzzles or quest procedures, that you may prefer to discover on your own.

Invoked outside of combat, Ganesha gives a number of possible boons:

Unlocks doors adjacent to the invoker
Allows the invoker to pass guards who would otherwise stop her.
Surrounds the invoker with the scent of wildflowers -- this can remove certain disabilities from the invoker - slowing effects, stuns, etc...
The wildflower aura also removes item curses, allowing one to remove or drop cursed rings, loadstones, cursed phylacteries, etc...

Invoked in combat, Ganesha can cause the invoker's opponent's to put away their shields.

A good enough Ganesha invocation will also give the wildflower aura to people who you've befriended and your pets. Great insurance for parties.
