Calm Animals
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Animal 1, Drd 1, Rgr 1 V, S
1 min./level Close General
Targets: Animals within 30 ft. of each other

Calms 2d4 + level HD of animals.

This spell soothes and quiets animals, rendering them docile and harmless. Only ordinary animals (those with Intelligence scores of 1 or 2) can be affected by this spell. All the subjects must be of the same kind, and no two may be more than 30 feet apart. The maximum number of HD of animals you can affect is equal to 2d4 + caster level.

The affected creatures remain where they are and do not attack or flee. They are not helpless and defend themselves normally if attacked. Any threat breaks the spell on the threatened creatures.

Hold Animal
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates; see text - Yes Animal 2, Drd 2, Rgr 2 V, S, F/DF
1 round/level (D); see text Medium General
Target: One animal

Paralyzes one animal for 1 round/level.

This spell functions like hold person except that it affects an animal instead of a humanoid.

Dominate Animal
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 round PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Animal 3, Drd 3 V, S
1 round/level Close General
Target: One animal

One animal obeys your silent mental commands and orders.

This spell allows you to enchant the targeted animal and direct it with simple commands such as "Attack," "Run," and "Fetch." Suicidal or self-destructive commands (including an order to attack a creature two or more size categories larger than the dominated animal) are simply ignored.

Dominate animal establishes a mental link between you and the subject creature. The animal can be directed by silent mental command as long as it remains in range. You need not see the creature to control it. You do not receive direct sensory input from the creature, but you know what it is experiencing. Because you are directing the animal with your own intelligence, it may be able to undertake actions normally beyond its own comprehension. You need not concentrate exclusively on controlling the creature unless you are trying to direct it to do something it normally couldn't do. Changing your instructions or giving a dominated creature a new command is the equivalent of redirecting a spell, so it is a move action.

None - No Animal 4, Drd 4, Rgr 4 V, S, DF

Storm giant

This spell summons to your side a natural creature (typically an animal, fey, magical beast, outsider with the elemental subtype, or a giant). The summoned ally appears where you designate and acts immediately, on your turn. It attacks your opponents to the best of its ability. If you can communicate with the creature, you can direct it not to attack, to attack particular enemies, or to perform other actions as you command.

A summoned monster cannot summon or otherwise conjure another creature, nor can it use any teleportation or planar travel abilities. Creatures cannot be summoned into an environment that cannot support them. Creatures summoned using this spell cannot use spells or spell-like abilities that duplicate spells that have expensive material components (such as wish ).

The spell conjures one of the creatures from the 1st Level list on Table 10–2. You choose which kind of creature to summon, and you can change that choice each time you cast the spell. All the creatures on the table are neutral unless otherwise noted.

When you use a summoning spell to summon a creature with an alignment or elemental subtype, it is a spell of that type. All creatures summoned with this spell without alignment subtypes have an alignment that matches yours, regardless of their usual alignment. Summoning these creatures makes the summoning spell's type match your alignment.

This spell functions as summon nature's ally I except that you summon one 2nd-level creature or 1d3 1st-level creatures of the same kind.

Antilife Shell
Abjuration 1 round PRPG-O
None - Yes Animal 6, Clr 6, Drd 6 V, S, DF
1 min./level (D) 10 ft. General
Area: 10-ft.-radius emanation, centered on you

10-ft.-radius field hedges out living creatures.

You bring into being a mobile, hemispherical energy field that prevents the entrance of most types of living creatures.

The effect hedges out animals, aberrations, dragons, fey, giants, humanoids, magical beasts, monstrous humanoids, oozes, plants, and vermin, but not constructs, elementals, outsiders, or undead.

This spell may be used only defensively, not aggressively. Forcing an abjuration barrier against creatures that the spell keeps at bay collapses the barrier.

As beast shape III, except you change the form of up to one willing creature per caster level into an animal of your choice; the spell has no effect on unwilling creatures. All creatures must take the same kind of animal form. Recipients remain in the animal form until the spell expires or until you dismiss it for all recipients. In addition, an individual subject may choose to resume its normal form as a full-round action; doing so ends the spell for that subject alone.
