Bug Notes Edit

(1.03 resource) The actual creature is really oddly defined. It should at least be a genderless Construct race, and have no skills or additional feats associated with it.

Gameplay Notes Edit

This sword is a useful summonable construct for its immunities alone, which render it immune to some impressive things (Mind altering spells, death spells among them).

It probably matches the equivalent summon monster spell, and comes with a magic sword from the outset. It of course can also be buffed too (quite well, even considering its low duration). It is the most useful for an alternative to the Conjuration school's summon monster range of spells since it is Transmutation.

A small note is that it is odd that the Summon Creature range of spells was given a duration of Caster Level + 3 (down from 24 hours) yet this retains its 1/round level (which when spawned means it loses a round standing still).

Ability scoresEdit




  • True Neutral Alignment
  • The creature cannot be disarmed.
  • It for some reason isn't a construct proper (see Bugs).
  • It has 5/- damage reduction, plus all the Construct creature properties.
  • It is also Incorporeal, meaning it has a 50% concealment bonus applied to it when spawned.

Notes from NWN1 Edit

The creature no longer gets Knockdown, and now has a Longsword +3 instead of a Greatsword, although it has other alterations to make up for some of these things. It still lasts 1 round / level (see gameplay notes).
