Saving Throw:
Area of Effect:
One creature
This spell enables the cleric to call upon a small (size S) creature of at least animal intelligence to act as his or her mes- senger. The spell does not affect creatures that are “giant” types, and it will not work on creatures with an intelligence score of 4 or higher, or with a rating of /ow intelligence or better (whichever applies). If the creature is already within range, the cleric, using some type of food desirable to the animal as a lure, can call the animal to come. The animal is allowed a saving throw versus spell, and if this succeeds the spell fails. If the saving throw is failed, the animal will advance toward the cleric and await his or her bidding. The cleric can communicate with the animal in a crude fashion, telling it to go to a certain place, but directions must be simple. The spell caster can attach some small item or note to the animal. If so instructed, the animal will then wait at that location until the duration of the spell expires. (Note that unless the intended recipient of a message is expecting a messenger in the form of a small animal or bird, the carrier may be ignored.) When the spell’s duration expires, the animal or bird will return to its normal activities. The intended receiver of a message gains no communication ability.
