Description: The caster summons a dagger that acts as a faithful and loyal servant.


  • Requires Hordes of the Underdark.
  • This spell is quite useful at lower levels as the summon has damage reduction.
  • The blade has an attack bonus equal to half the caster's casting ability modifier. This is the degree of damage reduction that the blade can penetrate.
    • The ability may sometimes be different than the usual (especially if cast from an item). If the caster has bard or sorcerer levels, charisma is always used; otherwise if the character has cleric, druid, paladin, or ranger levels, wisdom is used; otherwise if the caster has wizard levels, intelligence is used. In the event that the caster has none of these classes, strength is used.
    • There is a technical cap of +20 on the attack bonus, but the practical cap for player characters is +10 due to the maximum achievable ability score. The minimum bonus is +1.
