This wood-bound book consists of a short chapter explaining the art of paper-folding known as origami. The remainder consists of otherwise blank pages, each depicting careful instructions on how to remove it and fold the page into different animal-shaped origami.
A magical manual of origami provides 30 pages each with a detailed diagram for folding the page into origami creatures. When one of the pages is removed from the magical manual of origami and the folding instructions followed (DC 25 Use Magic Device), the resulting origami creature comes to life as if it were a summoned creature of the relative type.
Summoned origami creatures remain until either dismissed by the owner or killed. Once a page is removed and folded, it cannot be used again. Failure to properly follow the instructions while folding an origami creature renders a page unusable.
Each manual includes diagrammed pages for the following origami (and relevant summoned creature types):
(5) colorful pages of parrots (parrot)
(5) wax-coated orange pages of barracuda (barracuda, small)
(5) textured saffron pages of snakes (snake, viper)
(5) glossy white pages of rats (rat)
(5) verdant pages of toads (toad)
(5) coarse black pages of lizards (lizard, common)
Due to the delicate nature of the pages contained within a magical manual of origami, the manual is extremely susceptible to fire—6 or more points of fire damage completely destroys it. Individual pages (before being activated) are destroyed by 1 point of fire damage.
