Summons animals from the local environment who will appear into empty hexes as determined by the caster, within the spell's range.
|Duration||1 round per level|

|Casting Time||2 rounds|
The caster must roll on one of seven tables, depending on the vegetation and terrain where the spell is cast — desert, jungle, ocean, savanna, steppe, tundra or woodland.
Animals that have been summoned will act independently, but in accordance with the caster's general wishes. Thus, an animal's precise actions cannot be micromanaged, but the animals called can be made to attack a general enemy, use their bodies to deflect damage, stand as a barrier and so on.
