|Casting time:||2 hours|
|Components:||V, S, M|
A powerful ritual to bring a creature into your service.
You must create a 10ft ritual circle that the target creature must stay within for the duration of the casting.
The circle must be made of chalk, ink or blood and caddles worth at least 200 gold.
The target creature must be of a CR of less than half of the casters level and must be a large creature or smaller.
The spell requires the caster to expend a spell slot of 4th level or higher (even though considered a ritual).
The spell also requires two additional spell casters to expend a spell slot of 1st level or higher each.
All of the casters must maintain concentration on the ritual for the duration of the casting, as if concentrating on a spell.
If the target creature moves outside the ritual circle, the ritual circle is broken or any of the spell casters loose concentration the spell fails and all spell slots used are lost.
Once the spell is completed the target creature considers the primary caster as their master and will obey their commands.
If this spell is cast on a creature a number of times equal to 5 times the creatures challenge rating the effect persists until you dismiss it or the creature dies.
You may have no more than 1 creature under the effect of this spell at one time, and no more that 3 under the permanent effect.
This spell can be re-cast using the same ritual circle so long as the circle is not damaged in any way.
