Types and Subtypes

The caster can specify which type of servant to summon by using a runestone. When cast without aid of a runestone, the Spirit Servant will take on a type suitable for the area it is summoned in, mimicking the unaligned Major Sanctuary (220) spell.


Alpine

The alpine spirit is a flurry of bright white snowflakes that swirl around a shimmering, light blue core of jagged ice. Ethereal azure eyes are centered in what looks like the spirit's head. The body of the alpine spirit appears substantial, yet it gives hint of its delicate nature as a few snowflakes escape the snowstorm of its form and disappear in the air.


Astral

The astral spirit's body is an inky greyish-blue color reminiscent of the night's sky over Elanith during twilight hours. An abundance of faintly twinkling stars speckle the spirit's majestic form. However, the most striking of the spirit's features are two twin nebulae which create a kaleidoscope of swirling pink, blue, purple, and green colors along its midsection. The stars embedded into the spirit's forehead transiently form the constellation known as The Mistress of Adoration.
The constellation changes each time you look at the spirit.


Aurora

Extremely bright rays of blinding orange light shine off of a restive aurora spirit. Its appendages are nothing more than wispy flares of light, making it seem uncertain whether or not the aurora spirit can manipulate solid objects. Obviously uncomfortable in this form, the spirit fidgets about constantly, leaving scorch marks on anything it presses up against too closely.

  • Aurora-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
Your aurora spirit forms itself into a giant ball of orange light that begins to encircle your body. The spirit is slow at first but then begins moving faster and faster until it is just a quickly-moving blur of fiery orange light around your corpse. Flares of energy peel off the aurora spirit and hit you, filling you with a calming warmth, but mysteriously do no damage.
The spirit's dance comes to an abrupt end but the warmth remains.


Badland

Small granules of sand come together cohesively to give form to the badland spirit. The badland spirit has a roughly humanoid shape but its body, limbs, and fingers are extremely thin and lanky. Occasionally, an errant wind blows by, scattering around small bits of sand off of the spirit's ethereal form.

  • Badland-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
Your badland spirit dematerializes into a fiercly hot tempest of wind and sand that whirls over towards your body. The spirit lifts your corpse into its vortex where your body hovers for several seconds. A hot wind caresses your face before the spirit sets you back down, leaving a sense of lingering warmth.


Bog

The bog spirit is a tangled kludge of small decaying weeds, mottled yellowy grasses, and thick dollops of an oozing rancid green-grey goop. Ethereal yellow eyes are centered in what looks like the spirit's head. Although the bog spirit's movements are sluggish and drippy, it hovers in midair with ease.

  • Bog-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
Your bog spirit steadily descends upon your corpse until it is directly over you. In an instant, it disappears, and is replaced by a cold slimy feeling, which tingles through your face and body. It is as if you had suddenly been dunked in a pool of freezing algae.
After a few moments, the spirit re-emerges on top of you, leaving a dank sludgy film over your body.
  • Bog-type Spirit Distress Call Messaging:
A heartbroken bog spirit launches itself high into the air above you.
An intense dark green light explodes over <Location>. The light expands and fully spreads through the sky above <Location>. After a few moments, however, the light begins to recede and ultimately fade from view.


Boulder

A volatile boulder spirit's bulky form is marked by craggy rough spots of jutting rock and earth. Flecks of mica, marble, gold, iron and other natural earth elements can all be found in various crevices of the boulder spirit's body. While the spirit is unmistakably solid, it retains an ethereal quality about its form and easily remains in flight despite its massive size.


Cavern

A desolate cavern spirit's bulky form is marked by craggy rough spots of jutting rock and earth. Flecks of mica, marble, gold, iron and other natural earth elements can all be found in various crevices of the cavern spirit's body. While the spirit is unmistakably solid, it retains an ethereal quality about its form and easily remains in flight despite its massive size.

  • Cavern-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
Your cavern spirit rises high into the air above you and dives down towards your body at a frighteningly quick pace. You feel a sudden crushing weight on your corpse as though a large rock had just fallen upon you. The feeling passes as quickly as it came, leaving only a slight tingling sensation. The spirit, meanwhile, is still hovering above your corpse seemingly right where it was a second ago.


Celestial

The celestial spirit's body is an inky greyish-blue color reminiscent of the night's sky over Elanith during twilight hours. An abundance of faintly twinkling stars speckle the spirit's majestic form. However, the most striking of the spirit's features are two twin nebulae which create a kaleidoscope of swirling pink, blue, purple, and green colors along its midsection. The stars embedded into the spirit's forehead transiently form the constellation known as The Hammer.

  • Celestial-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
Your celestial spirit's body turns completely translucent and the star formations found within begin to glow brightly. The spirit dives towards you and superimposes its body upon yours, while the stars inside the spirit glitter even stronger than before. A prickling sensation begins to run through your corpse, leaving you drained, but somehow strangely relieved. The spirit launches itself back into the air.

The constellation changes each time you look at the spirit.


Crevasse

An enraged crevasse spirit's bulky form is marked by craggy rough spots of jutting rock and earth. Flecks of mica, marble, gold, iron and other natural earth elements can all be found in various crevices of the crevasse spirit's body. While the spirit is unmistakably solid, it retains an ethereal quality about its form and easily remains in flight despite its massive size.


Desert

Small granules of sand come together cohesively to give form to the desert spirit. The desert spirit has a roughly humanoid shape but its body, limbs, and fingers are extremely thin and lanky. Occasionally, an errant wind blows by, scattering around small bits of sand off of the spirit's ethereal form.


Dune

Small granules of sand come together cohesively to give form to the dune spirit. The dune spirit has a roughly humanoid shape but its body, limbs, and fingers are extremely thin and lanky. Occasionally, an errant wind blows by, scattering around small bits of sand off of the spirit's ethereal form.


Forest

The forest spirit resembles nothing more exotic than a walking tree at first glance, with long bark-clad limbs and a head of leafy "hair." Yet, its form has a lingering ethereal quality to it, and when it floats, the leaves about its head and body shiver delicately in the air. A fine verdigris moss clings to the spirit, speckling its trunk and shrouding its cooly glowing eyes.

  • Forest-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
Your tree spirit hovers over towards you and lands by your feet. It carefully rips four leaves off its own foliage and places them on the four corners of your body. The leaves begin to glow in succession until they're all giving off a bright green light. Slowly, the light begins to seep into your body and fills your being with a sense of tranquility. The glow fades and the spirit takes flight once again.


Geyser

Small air bubbles are interspersed in the watery form of the geyser spirit, and faint particles of natural debris create swirling tendrils as the inner currents of the water sweep them about. Intermittently generated whirlpools appear and disappear within the liquid. Though the body of the spirit has definite substance and shape, it retains a constant hint of wispiness, ready to dissolve at any moment.

  • Geyser-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
A moping geyser spirit dives straight towards you, its corporeal form dematerializing into a jet of frigid water. The water hits your body straight on, but amazingly, does not damage your corpse. The water pools around your body as a cold tingling feeling fills your being. Slowly, the water begins to gather itself up again and reform into the geyser spirit, but the feeling remains.


Glacier

The glacier spirit is a flurry of bright white snowflakes that swirl around a shimmering, light blue core of jagged ice. Ethereal azure eyes are centered in what looks like the spirit's head. The body of the glacier spirit appears substantial, yet it gives hint of its delicate nature as a few snowflakes escape the snowstorm of its form and disappear in the air.

  • Glacier-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
An erratic glacier spirit's form whips up into a tiny blizzard, which whirls around your corpse before dematerializing within you. An intense sensation of cold chills your very soul. A large sheet of ice spreads outward along the ground beneath your body. The ice begins to shimmer, then gathers itself beside you as it reforms into the glacier spirit. The chill feeling remains.


Island

Obviously hailing from one of Elanthia's warmer climes, the island spirit is an amalgam of vegetable and mineral. Its hands and "hair" resemble the fronds of palms; its slender torso is smooth tree trunk, and the texture of its half-translucent skin resembles fine sand. Though solid after a fashion, it all shifts about without pause, as if gentled by unseen breezes.

  • Island-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
Your island spirit flies over towards your body and hovers above you for a few moments. Slowly, you begin to feel a gentle touch on your face, as though palm fronds had brushed against it. A surge of heat briefly fills you but is soon gone, leaving the odd scent of salt water in your nostrils.
  • Island-type Spirit Distress Call Messaging:
A jubilant island spirit launches itself high into the air above you.
A faint green light explodes over the Ruined Temple. The light seems to spread over the sky in a palm leaf-shaped pattern before receding and ultimately fading from view.
A jubilant island spirit launches itself hurriedly into the air above you.
A soft green light begins to suddenly spread across the sky over the Ruined Temple. The speed of the occurrence almost implies a sense of urgency.


Lake

Small air bubbles are interspersed in the watery form of the lake spirit, and faint particles of natural debris create swirling tendrils as the inner currents of the water sweep them about. Intermittently generated whirlpools appear and disappear within the liquid. Though the body of the spirit has definite substance and shape, it retains a constant hint of wispiness, ready to dissolve at any moment.

  • Lake-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
An impish lake spirit dives straight towards you, its corporeal form dematerializing into a jet of frigid water. The water hits your body straight on, but amazingly, does not damage your corpse. The water pools around your body as a cold tingling feeling fills your being. Slowly, the water begins to gather itself up again and reform into the lake spirit, but the feeling remains.


Lavaflow

Thin wisps of steam curl continually off the lavaflow spirit's bulky, but mostly transparent form. Flowing sluggishly within, thick rivulets of lava shuffle bits of half-melted stone and other debris throughout its body. Two heavyset black obsidian eyes placed deep within the spirit's head are the only feature of the lavaflow spirit that remains substantial and unwavering.

  • Lavaflow-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
A huffy volcano spirit dives straight towards Cleric, the lava occupying its translucent veins turning a brilliantly bubbling red before it passes through her body.
  • Lavaflow-type Spirit Distress Call Messaging:
A huffy volcano spirit zooms into the area and flits past you. As it does, a trailing stream of languidly hanging lava begins forming into a name next to the spirit. The spirit spells out the name, "Cleric".


Luck

An irate luck spirit is a wispy and frail humanoid bearing a slight resemblence to an Erithian. Its skin is milky white and opaque, although small segments of the spirit's body turn translucent from time to time, allowing you to see a single gold coin suspended within the form of the spirit. Large bulbous black eyes scan the nearby area for anything that may be of interest to the spirit as it floats about in midair.

  • Luck-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
Your luck spirit scatters into a billowing cloud-shaped formation of golden light that spreads itself over your body. The spirit completely obscures your body within the confines of its nebulous form leaving your spirit feeling somehow oddly changed. The gentle touch of some unseen hand caresses your soul and you thank your lucky stars that some higher being has not forsaken you. Slowly, the cloud over your body begins to fade.


Marsh

The marsh spirit is a tangled kludge of small decaying weeds, mottled yellowy grasses, and thick dollops of an oozing rancid green-grey goop. Ethereal yellow eyes are centered in what looks like the spirit's head. Although the marsh spirit's movements are sluggish and drippy, it hovers in midair with ease.

  • Marsh-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
Your marsh spirit steadily descends upon your corpse until it is directly over you. In an instant, it disappears, and is replaced by a cold slimy feeling, which tingles through your face and body. It is as if you had suddenly been dunked in a pool of freezing algae.
After a few moments, the spirit re-emerges on top of you, leaving a dank sludgy film over your body.


Mountain

A moping mountain spirit's bulky form is marked by craggy rough spots of jutting rock and earth. Flecks of mica, marble, gold, iron and other natural earth elements can all be found in various crevices of the mountain spirit's body. While the spirit is unmistakably solid, it retains an ethereal quality about its form and easily remains in flight despite its massive size.

  • Mountain-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
Your mountain spirit rises high into the air above you and dives down towards your body at a frighteningly quick pace. You feel a sudden crushing weight on your corpse as though a large rock had just fallen upon you. The feeling passes as quickly as it came, leaving only a slight tingling sensation. The spirit, meanwhile, is still hovering above your corpse seemingly right where it was a second ago.


Ocean

Small air bubbles are interspersed in the watery form of the ocean spirit, and faint particles of natural debris create swirling tendrils as the inner currents of the water sweep them about. Intermittently generated whirlpools appear and disappear within the liquid. Though the body of the spirit has definite substance and shape, it retains a constant hint of wispiness, ready to dissolve at any moment.

  • Ocean-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
A dolorous ocean spirit dives straight towards you, its corporeal form dematerializing into a jet of frigid water. The water hits your body straight on, but amazingly, does not damage your corpse. The water pools around your body as a cold tingling feeling fills your being. Slowly, the water begins to gather itself up again and reform into the ocean spirit, but the feeling remains.


Oxbow

Small air bubbles are interspersed in the watery form of the oxbow spirit, and faint particles of natural debris create swirling tendrils as the inner currents of the water sweep them about. Intermittently generated whirlpools appear and disappear within the liquid.

River

Though the body of the spirit has definite substance and shape, it retains a constant hint of wispiness, ready to dissolve at any moment.


Snow

The snow spirit is a flurry of bright white snowflakes that swirl around a shimmering, light blue core of jagged ice. Ethereal azure eyes are centered in what looks like the spirit's head. The body of the snow spirit appears substantial, yet it gives hint of its delicate nature as a few snowflakes escape the snowstorm of its form and disappear in the air.


Solar

Extremely bright rays of blinding orange light shine off of a quirky solar spirit. Its appendages are nothing more than wispy flares of light, making it seem uncertain whether or not the solar spirit can manipulate solid objects. Obviously uncomfortable in this form, the spirit fidgets about constantly, leaving scorch marks on anything it presses up against too closely.


Spring

Small air bubbles are interspersed in the watery form of the spring spirit, and faint particles of natural debris create swirling tendrils as the inner currents of the water sweep them about. Intermittently generated whirlpools appear and disappear within the liquid. Though the body of the spirit has definite substance and shape, it retains a constant hint of wispiness, ready to dissolve at any moment.

  • Spring-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:

Sun

Extremely bright rays of blinding orange light shine off of a variable sun spirit. Its appendages are nothing more than wispy flares of light, making it seem uncertain whether or not the sun spirit can manipulate solid objects. Obviously uncomfortable in this form, the spirit fidgets about constantly, leaving scorch marks on anything it presses up against too closely.

Here is some room messaging I've observed a sun spirit do:

A variable sun spirit opens its mouth, as if to let out a sorrowful wail, but instead only a beam of light in twilight hues emerges.
As its form dims noticably, a variable sun spirit floats just behind Master with its head lowered towards the ground.
In a sudden fit of rage, a variable sun spirit starts spinning madly, its arms flailing wildly as its glow pulsates. Soon a bright flare shoots out of its head heading straight upwards, and quickly dissipates.
A variable sun spirit deliberately floats over towards Person, a blinding corona enshrouding its figure, and draws near her face. Soon, the glow subsides, revealing a look of contempt on the spirit's face.
For a moment, the colors within the sun spirit's form shift; yellows turn to greens and oranges to purples, but every other detail remains the same. Before long, the bright hues return.


Sunburst

Extremely bright rays of blinding orange light shine off of a lamenting sunburst spirit. Its appendages are nothing more than wispy flares of light, making it seem uncertain whether or not the sunburst spirit can manipulate solid objects. Obviously uncomfortable in this form, the spirit fidgets about constantly, leaving scorch marks on anything it presses up against too closely.


Swamp

Ethereal yellow eyes are centered in what looks like the spirit's head. Although the swamp spirit's movements are sluggish and drippy, it hovers in midair with ease.

  • Swamp-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
Your swamp spirit steadily descends upon your corpse until it is directly over you. In an instant, it disappears, and is replaced by a cold slimy feeling, which tingles through your face and body. It is as if you had suddenly been dunked in a pool of freezing algae.
After a few moments, the spirit re-emerges on top of you, leaving a dank sludgy film over your body.


Taiga

The taiga spirit resembles nothing more exotic than a walking tree at first glance, with long bark-clad limbs and a head of leafy "hair." Yet, its form has a lingering ethereal quality to it, and when it floats, the leaves about its head and body shiver delicately in the air. A fine verdigris moss clings to the spirit, speckling its trunk and shrouding its cooly glowing eyes.


Tidal

Small air bubbles are interspersed in the watery form of the tidal spirit, and faint particles of natural debris create swirling tendrils as the inner currents of the water sweep them about. Intermittently generated whirlpools appear and disappear within the liquid. Though the body of the spirit has definite substance and shape, it retains a constant hint of wispiness, ready to dissolve at any moment.

  • Tidal-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
A touchy tidal spirit dives straight towards you, its corporeal form dematerializing into a jet of frigid water. The water hits your body straight on, but amazingly, does not damage your corpse. The water pools around your body as a cold tingling feeling fills your being. Slowly, the water begins to gather itself up again and reform into the tidal spirit, but the feeling remains.


Tree

The tree spirit resembles nothing more exotic than a walking tree at first glance, with long bark-clad limbs and a head of leafy "hair."

The leaves begin to glow in succession until they're all giving off a bright green light. Slowly, the light begins to seep into your body and fills your being with a sense of tranquility. The glow fades and the spirit takes flight once again.
  • Tree-type Spirit Distress Call Messaging:
An unruly tree spirit flits out of the room quickly.
A single green leaf flitters into the room out of seemingly nowhere. It gently sways itself to the ground by your feet and you notice that scratched onto the leaf is the name, "Person."


Tropical

Obviously hailing from one of Elanthia's warmer climes, the tropical spirit is an amalgam of vegetable and mineral. Its hands and "hair" resemble the fronds of palms; its slender torso is smooth tree trunk, and the texture of its half-translucent skin resembles fine sand. Though solid after a fashion, it all shifts about without pause, as if gentled by unseen breezes.

  • Tropical-type Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
Your island spirit flies over towards your body and hovers above you for a few moments. Slowly, you begin to feel a gentle touch on your face, as though palm fronds had brushed against it. A surge of heat briefly fills you but is soon gone, leaving the odd scent of salt water in your nostrils.

Flowing sluggishly within, thick rivulets of lava shuffle bits of half-melted stone and other debris throughout its body. Two heavyset black obsidian eyes placed deep within the spirit's head are the only feature of the volcano spirit that remains substantial and unwavering.


Wasteland

Small granules of sand come together cohesively to give form to the wasteland spirit. The wasteland spirit has a roughly humanoid shape but its body, limbs, and fingers are extremely thin and lanky. Occasionally, an errant wind blows by, scattering around small bits of sand off of the spirit's ethereal form.


Will-o-wisp

A volatile will-o-wisp spirit changes its shape constantly, shifting from a wispy green humanoid to a mote of green light, to a trailing stream of variegated colors. The will-o-wisp spirit flits about quickly, never staying stationary for too long, shifting forms even while dashing from one location to another.

  • Will-o-Wisp Spirit Lifekeep Messaging:
Your will-o-wisp spirit dives straight towards you, curling into an insubstantial ball of green light right before impact. As it hits you, it explodes in a flurry of twinkling color before reforming into a single corporeal form above you. You feel somehow oddly changed.


Wood

The wood spirit resembles nothing more exotic than a walking tree at first glance, with long bark-clad limbs and a head of leafy "hair." Yet, its form has a lingering ethereal quality to it, and when it floats, the leaves about its head and body shiver delicately in the air. A fine verdigris moss clings to the spirit, speckling its trunk and shrouding its cooly glowing eyes.


Woodland

The woodland spirit resembles nothing more exotic than a walking tree at first glance, with long bark-clad limbs and a head of leafy "hair."
