Minor Guardianship

1st-level conjuration (ritual)

Casting Time: 1

Range: Personal

Saving Throw: None

Components: V, S, M

Duration: 8 hours

When the spell is cast, the caster summons a small animal in the vicinity to watch over them as they sleep. The type of animal summoned will be dependent upon the surrounding environment, although birds, snakes, toads, rabbits, and squirrels are common. It will take up to 10 minutes for the animal to reach the caster’s location.

The caster has no control over the animal, and the animal may not reveal itself. Once the animal approaches within 100 feet, the caster becomes aware that it is nearby and acting under the spell.

The guardian animal will circle the caster’s resting place for the duration of the spell. It will detect any animal or creature, from frogs to giants, that approach within 40 feet of the caster. If the caster is asleep when an animal or creature approaches, the guardian conveys a mental image of the spotted intruder into the caster’s dreams. If the intruder is of a sort who would normally invoke a fight or flight reaction from the caster, then the caster will be awakened by the dream-vision.

The material component is a small amount of food that must be eaten by the caster while casting the spell.
