No one deserves this.

You lay an insidious curse upon the target which summons a kender which appears adjutant to the target full of joy and vigor and grabby thieving hands. Treat as a default halfling, with improved evasion, and a luck bonus on sleight of hand checks, AC, and saving throws equal to 5 + your caster level. The kender will be friendly to the target, though it will not help in combat or fight directly in any way. It will follow the target to the ends of the earth with a sickening child-like innocence, while "borrowing" items from the cursed individual, usually at the worst possible time.

This is very annoying of course, and the kender doesn't take "no" for an answer about going away, so it often ends in violence. If the kender is killed, this is fine, as it re-appears in the closest unobserved area unharmed. It also seems to be capable of greater teleport at will whenever unobserved. Worse, because the kender appears not unlike a child and it can pass for one (treat as a DC 30 Disguise check), it often is not easy to explain why you just lit a kid on fire. The kender will do its best to return the favor on their "silly pranks" if things become violent as well to the best of its ability.

This is a powerful curse, not merely because it can only be removed by things which remove bestow curse, but also because the kender is always aware of any attempts to remove the curse and actively will seek to disrupt attempts. Innocently, of course.

Material Component: A copy of the Dragonlance campaign setting.
