This spell calls to your side a spirit of nature to advise and aid you. This being is insubstantial and possesses no hit points or other combat statistics, as it does not interact with the world other than to advise and aid. It follows you about, never straying further than the spell’s range. While the wood spirit is nearby, you can spontaneously convert prepared spells of equivalent or higher level into spells from the following list:
Level 1: detect animals or plants, goodberry, pass without trace
Level 2: forest friend*, tree shape, wood shape
Level 3: diminish plants, plant growth, speak with plants
This functions similarly to spontaneous conversion of summon nature’s ally spells.
* this spell is found in the book “Ultimate Combat”.
A spell that can let a savvy druid be awesome unexpectedly, becoming a master of nature at the drop of a hat even when that druid has prepared for a city adventure. I would use this spell to increase options dramatically, though I feel that these spells have such specific uses and are so rarely used in a game that this spell is well balanced.
