Saving Throw: Special (see text) Spell Resistance: No
This spell conjures a quasi-real birdlike creature composed of roaring flames: A firebird. The firebird can be ridden only by the caster or by the one person for whom the caster specifically made the mount. A firebird resembles a giant eagle with red, orange, and white flames in place of feathers. It has what seems to be a saddle and bridle. All animals within 30 feet of a firebird must succeed at a Will save against the spell's DC or become panicked for 1d6 minutes.
The firebird has 26 hit points +1 hit point per caster level. If reduced to 0 hit points, the firebird vanishes. It can bear its rider's weight plus up to 10 additional pounds per caster level. While riding a firebird, the rider gains fire resistance 20 and a +1 luck bonus to saving throws.
