Creates replicas of creatures native to the caster's current location, weaving them from shadows and threads of Abyssal matter.

Shadow Creatures is a Summonings spell with context-sensitive results. It summons 1d(1 + HD/5) monsters or groups fitting to the area that you are in. The duration of the summoned creatures is inversely dependent on their hit dice, so weaker creatures will last longer. Monsters normally generated with equipment are given summoned versions of their weapons and armour which disappear with them.

Summoned bands (such as a group of orcs) only count as one creature in regards to the summoning cap of 4.
