Shadow of the Nightgaunt

3rd-level conjuration

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: 60 feet

Components: V, S, M (an Elder Sign)

Duration: Concentration, up to 1 hour

You summon one nightgaunt that appears in an unoccupied space you can see within range. A summoned nightgaunt disappears when it drops to 0 hit points or when the spell ends. When you cease concentrating, the spell does not end immediately, but lasts until 1 hour after the nightgaunt appeared.

The nightgaunt is hostile to all creatures, including you. Roll initiative for the nightgaunt, which has its own turns. The nightgaunt pursues and attacks the nearest non-nightgaunt creature of Medium or smaller size to the best of its ability, attempting to capture the creature and carry it off to the nearest dangerous location that you are aware of.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 5th level or higher, you summon an additional nightgaunt for every two slot levels above 3rd.
