Description

This spell conjures a Large, quasi-real, wolf-like creature made of roiling black smoke.

It functions as phantom steed, except as noted above. In addition, the creature radiates an aura of Will save or become shaken for 1d4 rounds (this is a mind-affecting fear effect). A creature that makes its Will save is unaffected by the steed's fear aura for 24 hours.

The ghost wolf may also be used in combat. Once per round, the rider may direct the wolf to attack in battle as a free action (bite +10, 1d8+6 damage); unlike an animal mount, this does not require a Ride check or any training. Once the ghost wolf attacks, it lasts for only 1 round per level thereafter.

This spell can be made permanent.
