(Legacy system, no longer active) Edit
Almost all summons have been changed from default.
In addition durations have been increased for the lower level spells. Summon Monster 1 has its duration extended to 20(?) minutes per caster level and for each increasing level of spell this multiplier is reduced until Summon Monster IX has no(?) multiplier.
Ranger and Bard summons have been increased in strength to reflect the level you obtain the spell rather than the level of the spell itself. For example, the level 4 Ranger summon is roughly as strong as the Wizard level 8 summon.
Summons to avoid: Currently some of the summons are not worth using. These are the Stirge and the Lantern Archon. Both are terribly weak and need improving or changing.
Summons By ClassEdit
Wizards and Clerics share the same summons but they change depending on the caster's good-evil alignment.
Bard Loyal Fan summon changes depending on gender. It always appears a member of the opposite gender.
Bard Band Member summon changes depending on good-evil alignment.
