If this page is unbalanced please say so.

I fixed alot of the formatting problems to make it a bit more pleasing to the eyes. Though, I'm not perfect, so there might still be some errors, because I think this is the first spell to create a creature not using a existing stat block. As for other changes, here's the list.
  • First of all, the casting time was weird, so I buffed it to 1 action.
  • Nerfed the range, cause that's too huge.
  • Nerfed it so you can only have at most 1 because it can get messy if there are more.
  • Added a way for the servant to be commanded.
  • Modified how turf toss works for sand, dirt and mud to use saving throw, cause rolling a d12 for blindness is weird. Should change the DC later.
  • Added a damage type to the damage, because it is necessary. For now it's bludgeoning, cause I can't think of what else it could be.
  • Moved the effects at higher level part down to the "At Higher Levels" because it needed to be there.
Other than that, I think this page is still of questionable balance, and at higher levels, this is especially weak. Consider moving this to a 1st level spell, and then buff the higher levels more. --Alearori (talk) 11:43, 7 November 2017 (MST)
so what happens to the AC and hp as well as movement when you cast this at higher levels? and the weight what happens. does the damage it deals increase as well?
The original maker didn't specify what happens to those at higher levels, but assume the AC, HP and movement speed stays the same at higher levels.
Weight isn't something a creature has listed in its stat block, making it a bit hard to assign one, but in this scenario, it'd be ultimately up to the DM.
The increase in damage is due based on the dexterity, since increasing it's dexterity increases it's modifier. Using a 9th level spellslot, the damage of Turf Toss increases to 1d6+1+10.
There is still alot of problems with this spell, such as the scaling, so if you have any ideas on how to fix it, feel free to say so, or just do it. --Alearori (talk) 08:33, 1 December 2017 (MST)
