It is *meant* to be non-trivial! Also note that the Spirit world is the *easiest* of the otherworlds to get to (the other Otherworlds have various "layers" to go through, each 3 masteries more than the one before).

Fetishes are "filled" by shamans, not by every-day-run-of-the-mill tribesmen. The shaman must make a circle, go to the Spirit world, fight a spirit and force it into the fetish - there is a lot of "behind the scenes" involved in that simple task. Which means that shamans are going to be really protected from physical peril at all times - if a family loses its shaman, it is screwed!
