Summoning & CS Rules

Some mages are not fighters, rather they are summoners. What does this mean you may ask? Summoning is an art involving a sort of space and time magic which brings forth all manner of beings to the summoner's position. These can includes things like demons, angels, elementals, dead beings, animals, or anything else you can come up with in your mind. From any time period, past, present, or future, and from any place either on Earthland or perhaps beyond. That's where the space and time parts come in. There are three forms of summons; Infinite Summons, True Summons, and Celestial Spirits. Infinite summons are summons that you can summon multiple times, while you may only summon True Summons or Celestial Spirits once per topic. The trade off is that True Summons and Celestial Spirits are stronger. Summoning, however, follows a few different rules from regular magics.

Magic: When you are creating a summoning magic it must be focused around a theme. This means you must choose specific beings that you can summon based around that theme. Some examples of themes would be things such as the undead, spirits, historical warriors, angels, samurai, or anything else you believe would work. This choice is completely up to you, but there are some themes such as dragon summoning that will be denied.

Spells: Instead of your standard spell template that you use for regular spells, summoning spells have a different template. The spells that your summons use follow the normal template, but your actual summoning spells follow a special template that will be shown further down. Cost MP Costs, True Summons and Celestial Spirits cost half of the rank's cost to summon them and an upkeep of 10 MP, while Infinite Summons have no summon cost and an upkeep of 5 MP. Additionally, normal Summoning magic users may only have a maximum of two summons active at one time, whereas Celestial Spirit mages are able to have three summons active at a time.

Size: Summons can only be a certain, maximum size in order to prevent gigantic monsters trampling through entire towns. Remember, the bigger they are the easier they are to see and hit.

  • D- 3 meters
  • C- 4 meters
  • B- 6 meters
  • A- 8 meters
  • S- 10 meters
  • SS- 25 meters

Like the summoner, Summons have base stats that they must have, following the same categories as their summoner. These stats are Strength, Stamina, Agility, and Aptitude. While Strength, Stamina, and Agility are determined by the rank of the spell used to summon the creature, Aptitude has a base state equivalent to that of their summoner (.125). For Infinite Summons, the stats are half of what they would normally be (with the exception of D-rank summons, which would have Strength and Stamina equal to D-rank). For True Summons and Celestial Spirits, the stats are set at their normal levels. Summons are capable of having spells that buff their stats and being buffed by their summoner, however they are only half as effective as they would be if cast by a mage. In other words, the percentages outlined in the Magic Regulations would be reduced by hafl with the exception of a D-rank buff, which would remain at 25%. Debuffs function the same as they would on mages.

In regards to a summon's MP Pool, this is determined by the amount of MP that was required to summon it multiplied by 5. For any spells that the summons have, the cost to cast them is half of what the spell would normally be and if the spell has an upkeep cost it is set at 5 MP regardless of the summon's rank. Any spells that the summon uses will drain the summon's MP Pool rather than that of the summoner's.
