Ki Clone (3.5e Spell)
From D&D Wiki
|Level:||Ki Master 9, Sor/Wiz 9|
|Casting time:||1 round|
|Duration:||2 hours (d)|
The user of this spell learns to duplicate his own life-force. This technique allows him to summon an almost identical duplicate of himself, made purely out of ki energy. The ki creature has the caster's HP, Base Attack Bonus, and other attributes equal to three-fourths of the caster's and have all the same spells and abilities, barring some restrictions. The caster has an empathic link with the ki creature as it is created and will otherwise obey most commands given to it. Otherwise, it remains idle, awaiting command and keeping itself alive for up to 2 hours until summoned back, destroyed, or it's time ends. The Ki creature is unaffected by enchantment effects that may cause it to take a command from another being. The ki clone is otherwise limited to the abilities and weaknesses that the caster is.
Unlike it's creator, it uses it's spells with a greater cost to it's duration. For each time it uses a spell slot, the ki creature loses ten minutes/per level of the spell used; in the case of 0th level spells, it instead decreases the duration by five minutes. If the duration is lowered to negative or zero in this way, the caster level for the spell used is decreased by one per ten minutes of extra time expanded from the spell level used and any damage variables are decreased by 50% of the total damage caused. In addition to this, at the end of the turn following the ki clone's use of the spell also destroys the clone.
