Call Hound of St Jasper
The ghostly snarling hound paced back and forth, awaiting the arrival of the high priest of Law. The door was flung open.
‘Save me from this beast!’ a man cried from within.
‘There is no saving you from this sin,’ the priest said solemnly. ‘Killing defenseless animals for no reason is a crime that must be paid for.’
The ethereal hound looked at the priest.
‘Let him live, but teach him a lesson.’
The beast nodded then turned to the Dogkiller of Verk.
The screams were almost unbearable.
Call Hound of St Jasper (Cleric)
Duration: Until target is cornered.
This clerical spell conjures an ethereal hound, one of the favored creatures of St Jasper, to track any who would harm creatures of Animal intelligence or lower for no reason other than to be cruel (self defense or killing for food will not cause one to be targeted by this spell). The hound is tireless in its task, tracking with a 89% chance of success, leading the casting priest or priestess to his or her target. At this point the creature will either hold the animal abuser at bay or attack, depending on the caster’s wishes.

This post was written in memory of Jasper, a faithful dog slain by an unthinking and cruel human for no valid reason. May Jasper live on within the OSR.
