This spell summons a creature of the animal subtype, either Small or Medium size, to serve the sorcerer. The spell is different for each animal and must be learned separately (for example, Summon Boar and Summon Eagle are two different spells). The MP cost is 20 for an animal of Small size and 30 for a Medium-size animal. The animal will serve the sorcerer without question, including attacking his enemies.

The spell may be cast in two ways:

  • Call Animal: The caster calls upon an animal of the given type within 1 mile/ magic-user level. The animal moves towards the caster at its normal speed. This version of the spell has a duration of 1 hour/level.
  • Manifest Animal: The caster throws the spell focus (a figurine of the animal) on the ground within 15 feet of himself, and the figurine magically grows and becomes a normal animal of its kind. This version of the spell has a duration of 1 round/ magic-user level. At the end of any round during which a manifested creature is dealt damage, it must make a Will saving throw (DC = damage sustained that round). Failure indicates that the spell ends and the figurine reverts to its inanimate form.

Focus: A small image or carving of the animal to be summoned.

XP Cost: 25 XP (50 XP for a Medium-size creature).
