Summoned Creature: Shark

Summoned Creature: SharkA brutal and omnivorous shark that will eat anything – including man. Whether because of some mystic ability or a more mundane coincidence, these sharks often are found dwelling in areas of frequent shipwrecks. Perhaps it was only after first tasting the drowned sailors of such wrecks that these sharks discovered the delights of man-flesh, but they now seem to have come to view humans as quite the treat and sometimes appear near human villages.

As a summoned, template, creature, this creature has several changes. Anything noted with [] is what it gains from the template associated with the summoners’ alignment. Divine is always listed first, and Unholy afterwards.
