After a lengthy casting, you call forth a being of absolute evil to do your bidding: A vile and obsequious creature known as a Simpering Servant. This creature comes from the Infernal realms. A simpering servant is a small spindly creature with narrow red slits for eyes, and a stink reminiscent of spoiled cabbage and human excrement. Upon appearing, this creature will immediately assume a posture of servility, whimpering in the face of its new master.

Despite this behavior, simpering servants always plot to kill their patrons, as they resent their enslavement. Still, the servant must obey commands uttered by its lord - so the summoner's most common first command is for the servant to never raise arms against him. This does not stop the servant from plotting indirect ways to destroy its master. Once an unholy warrior has called his servant, he may not call another unless the first is slain or otherwise dismissed.

Simpering servants remain in the caster's service until destroyed or dismissed. If dismissed, they never stray far from their pasy master, shadowing his movements and actively wreaking as much mayhem as possible, all the while working towards the caster's destruction.

Material component: The heart of a sentient humanoid packed in dung.

Experience point component: 150 experience points.
