Campaign Design - Spells: Ashen Servitor

Ashen Servitor (from White Wolf Quarterly/Sword & Sorcery Insider: Vol. 2.4 (Fall 2004))

Level: Cleric/Favored Soul 2, Death 3, Sorcerer/Wizard 3
Components: V, S, M, F/DF
Casting Time: 1 full round
Range: Close (25 feet + 5 feet per 2 caster levels)
Target, Effect, or Area: One summoned creature
Duration: 1 minute per caster level (D)
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No

The caster spills ash from a specially prepared urn. The fine powder quickly forms a humanoid shaped cloud. The ashen servitor is a single undead creature with the same statistics as a shadow that can manipulate objects in the same manner as the spell unseen servant. The shadow, bound into a cloud of ash, does not gain its normal racial skill bonuses and is treated as a corporeal creature.

The summoned undead creature serves the caster faithfully for the duration of the spell, and it is not vulnerable to clerical turning or command. The ashen servitor can still be rebuked and spells that target undead specifically affect it normally. Holy water deals an additional 1d4 points of damage to an ashen servitor. Once the spell expires, the ash returns to the urn and can be reused.

Material component: Six cubic inches of volcanic ash.

Focus: A stylized black and grey cremation urn worth 100 shillings.
