Hi Legend players !

   This is my second article about summon-able monsters for the Legend RPG, using the rules in Arcania of Legend : Blood Magic. After my last article featuring the Succubus and Incubus, I decided that now I will create some much more combat oriented monster, and another one, which is something smaller and easier to summon.

  So for the first goal I created the Arachnodemon – while it’s much more a hunter than a fighter it’s poison is extremely dangerous. For the second I though a classic like a winged Imp could be a perfect summoned assistant.

As before this is the base summoning cost. For each additional hour of servitude spend an additional Magic Point.

Arachnodemon (Demon)

  This demon looks like the biggest giant spiders around, but even more dangerous. It’s poison is unnaturally strong, and it has a human intelligence to turn it to be a very effective predator. It’s magic resistance is a nasty surprise to those who would think it’s just a “simple” giant spider.

Imp (Devil)

   This little devil is often accompany evil spellcasters, and it’s very usable as a general helper. It’s often disguise itself as a small common animal (most often a cat, a raven, a rat or a toad), because it know that is has no chance against trained opponents in a direct confrontation.

They are often summoned because the strongest casters (POW 17 or above) could call them without much preparations. Older Imps often have even more Mystical Abilities, higher POW, INT and/or CHA. They, of course cost more Magic Points to summon.
