Campaign Design - Spells: Create Black Orc

Create Black Orc (adapted from Fury in the Wastelands: The Orcs of Tellene)
Conjuration [Evil]

Level: Cleric/Favored Soul 6
Components: V, S, M
Casting Time: 1 week
Range: Special
Target, Effect, or Area: One spawning pool
Duration: Permanent
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No

This ancient and foul spell is necessary for the creation of black orcs. Cast deep within the bowels of the earth, it creates a pool of primeval slime from which fully-grown black orcs are spawned.

When cast, this spell transforms an area of some 400 square feet into slime. A total of one orc per month may be brought forth from the pool per point of permanent Constitution the casting priest expends, to a maximum of five points. This loss can never be recovered, even through greater restoration or wish spells. The caster must make the decision at the time of casting and cannot change his mind later.

In order to fuel the creation process, sentient beings must be sacrificed at the rate of one per orc to be spawned. No sacrifice means no new spawn. No spell can counter its effects on a sacrificial victim, who is transformed into a black orc by the spawning pool.

Once the spawning pool is created, it is permanent, and can be used for further castings of create black orc without requiring the expenditure of the material component, although the casting priest must still expend permanent Constitution and provide a sacrificial victim for every black orc to be spawned. Only a wish can dispel the spawning pool's magical powers.

Material components: The blood of twenty sentient creatures, who must be sacrificed as part of the creation of the spawning pool.
