Craft Magical Beast[edit]

Prerequisites: Caster Key Ability 15 or Greater.

You can create magical beasts now! Doing so will take 25gp and 20 XP* per Hit Point of creature created. These costs are for magic materials, and XP for the creation of the soul.

The XP cost is only if the Spellcraft DC check succeeds.

The DC is 15 + CR of base creature + Half CR of second creature.

  • If the creature in question has a CR of less than 1, treat the CR as a negative half of the denominator (1/2 would be -1, 1/6 would be -3, etc.)


Take for example the Toadbat.

The Toadbat's creation DC is 8, and costs 25 gp and 20 XP.
