Creates an invisible butler that can do the caster's bidding.


Unseen Servant[]

Debuted in the Player's Handbook as a magic-user spell.

Level: 1 School: Alteration
Components: V, S, M (a piece of string and a bit of wood)
Range: 3" radius of caster Casting Time: 1 segment
Duration: 6 turns + 1 turn/level Saving Throw: None
Effect: An invisible force

The invisible force created by this spell can move within the range at the will of the caster. It obeys the caster's command to perform any action a human servant could do. It can carry only a maximum of 200 gp in weight (or 400 gp in weight pushing or pulling accross a smooth surface). It has no attacks, and cannot be targeted by attacks itself. It can be magically dispelled, or, if caught in an area spell, is eradicated if it takes 6 points of damage.

DM's Advice: Becuase the servant has no shape, it cannot be clothed (and so cannot wear magic items).
