A New Divine Spell - Create Baneguard

There you find a D&D 5th edition conversion of a spell from AD&D 2nd edition.

Church of Bane in the Forgotten Realms setting uses it to create a Baneguard. You'll find its statblock in the next post.

During the years many other evil churches have known the secrets of this spell so you can easily use it in any campaign.

The spell is available in the Cleric Spells List.

This spell creates an undead servant known as Baneguard.

The Baneguard understands your language and obeys orders up to 30 words you give to it if it can hear them.
