Conjure Dream-Dwellers

4th-level conjuration

Casting Time: 1 minute

Range: 30 feet

Components: V, S, M (sand and a silver key worth 500 gp)

Duration: concentration, up to 1 hour

You summon one or more creatures from the Dreamlands, which appear in an unoccupied space that you can see within range. Choose one of the options below (see Chapter 9 for statistics):

  • One shantak
  • Two nightgaunts
  • Four moon-beasts or vooniths
  • Eight Dreamlands cats or wamps

The creature disappears when it drops to 0 hit points or when the spell ends.

The Dreamlands creature is friendly to you and your companions for the duration unless it succeeds on a Charisma saving throw, in which case it acts as it wills.

Roll initiative for the creature, which has its own turns. If you control it, it obeys any verbal commands that you issue to it (requiring no action from you), as long as they don’t violate its interests. If you don’t issue any commands to it, it defends itself from hostile creatures but otherwise takes no actions.

If your concentration is broken, the summoned creature doesn’t disappear. Instead, you lose control of the creature, it becomes hostile toward you and your companions, and it might attack. An uncontrolled summoned creature can’t be dismissed by you, and it disappears 1 hour after you summoned it.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using certain higher-level spell slots, you can choose one of the summoning options above and more creatures appear: twice as many with a 7th-level slot, or three times as many with a 9th-level slot. You can instead choose to summon a single more potent creature, so long as the spell slot is at least the indicated slot level: a Large Leng spider with a 5th-level slot, a gug with a 7th-level slot, a Huge Leng spider with an 8th-level slot, or a bhole hatchling with a 9th-level slot. If you summon a bhole hatchling, it automatically succeeds on its Charisma saving throw and may act as it wishes.
