DESCRIPTION

You invoke an aspect of natural predators to help you track and take down prey. Once the script is cast, a ghostly apparition appears within range, taking on the form of a translucent wolf, eagle, or squid (if underwater). You choose which form the apparition takes, and it has the same statistics as the animal it appears as.

It appears where you designate and acts immediately, on your turn. If you are not currently engaged with an opponent, the animal stays with you for 10 minutes per caster level. During this time, you and the animal receive a +2 bonus on Survival checks to track.

If during this time you are attacked or attack an opponent, or you cast this script while already in combat, the script’s duration is reduced to 1 round per level, and the animal fights with you. It attacks your opponents to the best of its ability. If you can communicate with the creature, you can direct it not to attack, to attack particular enemies, or to perform other actions.

Overload: For every runic charge overloaded into this script, you manifest an additional animal of the same type. Each animal increases the bonus on Survival checks by +2.
