The victim has one round to attempt an escape before the mouths bite automatically (the victim must make a saving throw versus Strength on percentage dice or lose 1d10 points of strength). Dark Young can also attempt to trample with their gigantic hooves (+2 to hit, HTH + 1d12 Damage).

Origin and Background:



Summon Dark Young

This spell costs 4 Power per 10% chance of success. The spell takes 5 minutes per point of power spent. Once the spell is cast, the caster must make a saving throw versus his Intelligence x2 or suffer an additional loss of 1d12 Power. A beast (weighing 120 lbs or more) must be sacrificed. The summoner needs a knife to make certain ritual cutes in despatching the victim. The spell must be cast outdoors in a wood, during the dark of the moon.

Once the spell has been cast successfully, one Dark Young (per spell) will stalk out of the woods 2d10 minutes after the chanting subsides. It arrives unbound. The caster must now cast his Bind Dark Young spell or face the fury of the summoned Dark Young.

Bind Dark Young

This spell costs 4 Power per 10% chance of success. Once the spell is cast, the caster must make a saving throw versus his Intelligence x2 or suffer an additional loss of 1d10 Power. Once bound, the Dark Young must obey one order by the caster, even to attacking its own kind, after which it is freed and returns whence it came. If the caster should fail his chance to bind, then the Dark Young will attack the caster.
