Navnen returned to the cottage the adventurer’s shared looking ragged and as if he had just taken a sound beating.
‘What happened to you?’ Valance asked.
‘You know that sorceress that lives a few blocks over with that ill-tempered gray cat familiar?’ the thief replied.
‘Yes, I do,’ said Chalk.
‘Don’t ever go to her place unannounced, that cat is a killer!’ Navnen told his fellow adventurers.
‘Binksy?’ Koram asked.
‘It was huge! Savage!’ was all the thief could say.
The other three exchanged glances.
Familiar Rampage (Magic-user)
Duration: One round per level of caster.
When cast this wizard’s spell causes his or her familiar to become bigger and more dangerous for a time. Any familiar immediately increases in size to Medium, doubles normal movement and suddenly has 5HD and an attack that deals 1d8+2 damage. A Dispel Magic spell will counter this affect and return the creature to normal size. Many magic-users jealously guard this spell so that in a ‘wizard duel’ they may gain the upper edge easily.
