Find familiar was a common spell.[1]


This spell was almost identical to find familiar, except it could only be cast be necromancers. Using this spell, a caster could gain a familiar of only certain species. These species were: a bat, a black cat, a frog, a giant centipede, a giant rat, an imp, a large spider, a quasit or a raven. Imps and quasits would only become familiars to a powerful necromancer. If the familiar was killed, the caster suffered extreme pain.[1]


In addition to verbal and somatic components, the spell required material components, which were the same as the find familiar spell: a high-quality charcoal, incense and herbs that needed to be burned in a brazier made of brass as part of the ritual. These materials cost at least 2,000 gp. The caster was only able to cast this spell once a month, during a full moon.[1][2]


This spell was known to be used by wizards of the Cult of the Dragon.[1]
