Additional summons lists.


Pathfinder Society GM Discussion

Grand Lodge ***

Okay I got a player who is having fun with his summoner (Save me from the horde o' dogs!.. please!). And he brought up a valid question..

It mentions 'alternate summons lists' in the Play guide.

Aside from the ones in a few of the Adventure Paths (he likes playing and prefers to avoid buying modules of anykind) I can't see anything that stands out in the MASSIVE pile of data in the additional resources list.

Anyone already addressed this issue while I look through it again?

Some creatures are specifically added to some summon lists based on your deity, as per the articles in the Adventure Paths which have articles on those deities. Many of those have been made PFS-legal. Not useful for a non-divine summoner, though.

Noticed that too.. not wanting anything in the AP series as he resolutely doesn't want to get them. They are the ONLY thing I've seen as an alternative summon list.

That's all that's legal (Beastiary I creatures on Core list and those few AP creatures). Most of AP summons have very tight religious restrictions on them so at most you can get one extra creature to summon.

I mentioned something in a post for this thread but that post was deleted (either by a thread monster or someone real) so I will keep that out of this post. Probably a thread monster since no one left a deleted tomb stone in it's place but better safe than sorry.

Also another thing about those summons lists from the AP, it has never been clarified for PFS if 'follower' meant a Divine Caster of that deity or anyone with that deity in their deity space on their character sheet.

I'd assume that it was anyone with the deity on their sheet, with the additional caveat that in PFS there is the extra one-alignment-step rule for anyone, not just divine spellcasters.

The problem with that, the only time we got a ruling on that, it was Divine casters only, with the last word being he would look into changing that.

This was Josh.

You might be right about that now that I look at it, since the god specific magic items from Gods and Magic which anyone with the appropriate deity can use have the different wording "If X is your patron".
