Summon Creature IV
From Arelith Wiki
Spell Level(s): Bard 4, Cleric 4, Druid 4, Favored Soul 4, Ranger 4, Shaman 4, Sorcerer 4, Wizard 4 Innate Level: 4 School: Conjuration Descriptor(s): None Component(s): Verbal, Somatic Range: Short (8 meters) Area of Effect / Target: Point Duration: 24 hours Additional Counter Spells: None Save(s): None Spell Resistance: No Description: The caster summons a beast to be a faithful and loyal servant. The type of summon is thematically dependent upon the caster's surface or underdark origins, but is mechanically identical. The spell's tier can be increased with Greater Spell Focus: Conjuration, Animal Domain or Vermin Domain. If the Greater Spell Focus and one of the Domains is present the creature is further strengthened by the Spell Focus Bonuses, which do not otherwise apply to the Summon Creature line of spells; the tier does not increase further.
