Components

Additional casting effects

Casting this spell will temporarily drain 1 point of intelligence for approximately 15 minutes. Sometimes, when wearing a bronze helm to boost stats, it didn't leave a penalty.

Failing the spell temporarily drains 3 points of intelligence for approximately 2 minutes, but it can sometimes last for about 6 to 12 minutes, especially if your stats were already drained by previous casts.research

If you keep casting the spell it sometimes reset the penalty to -1 int after 2 minutes, but sometimes it takes 15 minutes to elapse.

These stat effects can be removed by a priest performing Restore.

Casting messages

Casting
You prepare to cast Gammer Shorga's Clever Creeper.
You whisper to the seed, convincing it that conditions are perfect for growing.
As a small shoot appears in the seed and roots start to form, you quickly shape the piece of potter's clay into a rough ring.
Roots start to take hold in the clay and you deftly weave the shoot around the ring.
You fix the ring with your stare and awaken it, imbuing it with some of your intelligence.
The ring seems to gain some sort of awareness.

Note that the awareness line appears at the same time as the previous line, a few seconds before the casting is complete, easily seen if you queue something after the casting. Furthermore it is present on failure. Thus it is not the success line. This might be a bug, reported.
