Version 0.18: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.
| Weaves a creature from shadows and threads of Abyssal matter. More powerful creatures are summoned with higher power.
You can sustain at most four creatures summoned by this spell.
Weave Creatures is a spell only accessible through use of a rod of shadows. Akin to the spell Shadow Creatures, it temporarily creates a random creature (including their full band if possible), yet rather than choose those appropriate to the branch and floor it is cast in the spell will call forth monsters from a given floor of The Dungeon or, with sufficient power, the Depths. The floor of the Dungeon or the Depths from which the monsters are taken from scales with spellpower.
Weave Shadows was added in 0.14, as part of the rod of shadows's replacing of the rod of demonology.
Prior to 0.16, the spell could not summon monsters from the Depths.
