This spell allows the spell caster to summon either a normal animal of any size, or a small animal with human intelligence.
This summons an animal to fight for the caster. It is of normal intelligence for its type, but will willingly obey any commands given by the caster as if it could understand speech. It remains for one hour, or until killed or banished (either by another spellcaster, or the owner). Only one such animal may be summoned at any one time.
The effect determines the size of the animal which must be native to the local area, although it need not be common.
When the spell is successfully cast, add 1d6 to effect value, and use this result on the creatures size table. The caster can choose to take a smaller animal instead of a larger one, and in cases where a specific type is needed, such as a flier, this is likely required. While it is possible for the spellcaster to then roll out the values for the summoned creatures, for speed and ease of play, it is recommended that the GM or player develop a list of animals, one per size (up to 12) that can be summoned on land or on sea, with preset values for STR, DEX and END. If the ecosystem supports such, at least naturally occurring flyer should be included in land or sea lists. In general, the summoned creature should be an average example of its species.
