Stork watched the crew of ghostly peasants as they worked diligently on the small stone tower. The grim sorcerer nodded approvingly then turned to Vistis the Blue Mage.
“I was going to say that investing in that spell on a scroll was a dumb idea,” he confessed, “yet seeing the coming wintery weather it will be good to have a nice fire to while away the cold nights.”
Vistis rolled his eyes behind his thickly lacquered mask. Even when Stork grudgingly admitted something it sounded condescending.

When cast this spell summons fourth a 1d4 ghostly workers plus 1 per level of the caster. These ghosts are non-combatants and will flee from any violence or combat.

Compelled to work, as long as supplies are available these tireless workers can build a solid house or small tower in three days, further castings of this spell, or castings with other magic-users that also know this spell can build a castle and keep, if a bit smallish, just within a month’s time. The buildings themselves are not magical in any way by the effects of this spell, but they are solid and will have proper ventilation and insulation.
