You fold pieces of paper into animal shapes and animate them with this spell. Animated creatures can fly like a bird (movement rate 45 ft. with average maneuverability) if they are created with wings, walk (movement rate 15 ft.), or even burrow through soft materials if they were made appropriately to do so. You create one such creature per three caster levels. Each creature has the statistics shown at right.
A paper creature can carry up to 2 pounds before it is more than lightly encumbered, it cannot carry more than 6 pounds (heavy load). Paper creatures that fly cannot carry anything heavier than 1/10th of a pound while flying.
Creatures can perform simple commands ("attack, carry, go to," and so on). They can only perform one action at a time and will only remember two commands at a time. You may take control of a paper creature you have created and control its actions directly, enabling it to perform more complex tasks. You must be no further than 60 ft. from the paper creature if you wish to control its actions. Controlling a paper creature is a full round action.
At the end of this spell your paper creatures become inanimate. If you are proficient in Craft: Origami you may make a skill check (DC 14) which, if successful, adds an additional hit die to your paper creatures that you create.
This spell was originally created by Night, an adventurer mage, and part-time assassin for hire. Focus
: One piece of paper for each creature you wish to create. Fold these pieces of paper into the desired form you wish to animate before you cast the spell.
