Spell - Shadow Serpent of Set - LVL2

Shadow Serpent of Set
Level: Cleric 2 (Egyptian, Evil, Darkness, Animal, Trickery)
Components: VSF (a dark hole)
Casting Time: standard action
Range: caster
Target: caster
Duration: 1 round per caster level
Saving Throw: NA

Using this spell, the caster reaches into a dark hole (it can be in a closet, hole in the ground, or even an empty sack) and seemingly pulls from nothing a jet black viper to attack his foes. The viper is a medium poisonous snake (see Monster Manual I), under the mental control of the caster as though it is his familiar. The snake’s connection to the caster is as though he was a wizard of the same level / hd. The viper knows instinctively what the caster wants, and need not be commanded, except for dramatic effect (should the caster wish it). If the viper is killed, or if the spell duration ends, the viper evaporates into wispy black smoke.
The spell focus for this spell is a dark hole that the caster must focus on to draw for the serpentine servant of set. The hole is of no consequence once the spell has taken effect.
