Well, then cast levitate/fly on it. Oh, wait - you can't see it to target it.
I wonder if this spell and things like mage hand, spiritual weapon, arcane eye and those that create a "magical construct" would benefit from a (generic magical) stat block that could be enhanced/modified to aid with these sort of things.
Ah, don't mind me, I'm just dealing with allergies and frustrated with rules discussions in general. I've been going around in circles with some people IRL and I come here and make the mistake of posting in some like anyone cares about my insights, lol.
Generally people have their position and nothing is going to change it, and sometimes the arcane gyrations involved between the two camps is headache inducing. The person I'm dealing with at the moment can't seem to pick a lane. He'll argue that a rule doesn't make sense from a realism standpoint one day, then be like "but the rules say!" the next.
More importantly, if we're limiting the spell on the 'human servant' line, what if there's no servants in the world? Does it mean that the force creature can bear your illegitimate children? Can it decide it deserves compensation and go on strike? A lot rides on this awful little addition to the descriptor.
"The servant can perform simple tasks that a human servant could do, such as fetching things, cleaning, mending, folding clothes, lighting fires, serving food, and pouring wine. Once you give the command, the servant performs the task to the best of its ability until it completes the task, then waits for your next command."
But it can't think for itself. Perhaps it's like the Wizard of Oz Scarecrow, only worse, needs a lot of help.
I wouldn't say so, though a character of a friend of mine turns out to have unseen servants, with benefits. When I asked them why they had unseen servant they said, for massages. It took longer than it should have for me to ask, what kind of massages?
Casting unseen servant as a ritual takes 10 minutes. I've always described it as my character doing all the work for 10 min as a "montage" to train the unseen servant to work doing the same things slower over an hour
I mean, if it's mindlness... it's preeety frickin limited
