    Default Summon Horror IX (Hallowe'en spell)

    Summon Horror IX
    Necromancy [Evil]
    Level: Sor/Wiz 9
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 hour
    Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
    Effect: See text
    Duration: Permanent
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No

    A shadow covers the moon; a wolf howls. Your power calls forth a villain from the Demiplane of Dread.

    You summon a villain from a distant plane of terror. Roll 1d8 to determine the general type of creature you summon, then choose a creature from the available options for that type (see below). Other options may be possible, at the GM's discretion.

    Creatures you summon are not under your control, though it may be possible to persuade, trick, or coerce them into doing your bidding in the short term. Otherwise, they work towards their own malevolent ends until they are banished or slain.

    Although this is a Necromancy spell, the summoned creatures are treated as though there were conjured by a Conjuration (Summoning) spell. They gain the [Extraplanar] subtype and can be banished via dismissal, a successful greater dispel magic, and similar magic.

    If you are slain, all creatures you have summoned through this spell are instantly banished.

    Roll Theme Sample Creatures
    1 Aberrant Abomination (Mind Flayer 9th-level psion under permanent Polymorph: Aberration), Warped One
    2 Black Magic Swamp Witch, Wicked Witch
    3 Construct Flesh golem
    4 Fiendish Cenobite, Devilish Musician, Incubus/Succubus (6th-level cleric/3rd-level mystic theurge),
    5 Lycanthrope Werewolf (12th-level ranger)
    6 Ooze Oozefolk (12th-level fighter)
    7 Plant Malboro, Pumpkin King, Witch Hazel
    8 Undead Mummy (12th-level cleric), Vampire noble (with 3 vampire spawn "brides"/"grooms")

    Any other classic options to add? A "slasher" villain (e.g. Jason, Michael)? A night hag "Freddy" type villain?

    Starspawn of cthulhu/half-fiend psionic Illithid telepath? Xenomorph? Shadow (pair up with the Vorlons )? Dalek? Hellboy/LG Half-Fiend something (not evil, but he gets lumped into it normally )?
    2B or not 2B, that is... a really inane question

    In communication and in fiction, what is intended and what is understood, rarely align even in the best of times. It even rarer for it to be the best of times.

    I fudged the Mind Flayer option a bit to make it more Cthulhu-like, though I'm shamelessly promoting my own material - Xenomorphs could be Kytons etc.
