Tiny Servant 5e
- on Feb 22, 2022
The tiny servant was a transmutation spell used by wizards to temporarily animate one or more small objects into faithful servants.
One small, free-standing object was possessed by the spell, sprouting arms and legs and becoming a creature under the caster’s control for a period of up to eight hours. Whenever the caster issued telepathic commands within 120 feet (37 meters) of the creature, the creature followed those commands until their completion.

Despite not being given any commands, the servant only fought for self-defense. Wizards can create multiple creatures, and all of them can be commanded at the same time.
You touch a tiny, nonmagical object that is not attached to another object or surface, nor is it carried by another creature. As the target moves and sprouts arms and legs, it becomes a creature under your control until the spell ends or it drops to 0 hit points. Its statistics can be found in the stat block.
You decide what action the creature will take and where it will move during its next turn, otherwise, you can give it a general command, like fetch a key, keep guard, or stack some books. If you do not issue commands, the servant does nothing except defend itself from hostile creatures. As soon as an order is given, the servant continues to follow it until it is completed.
The creature reverts to its original form when it drops to 0 hit points. Any remaining damage is carried over into its original form.
