Pathfinder: Summon Monster VI Unchained

Thank you for joining us as we expand the summon monster tables. If this is your first time, check out the expanded lists for summon monster I, summon monster II, summon monster III, and summon monster IV, and summon monster V.

The megafauna, or regular animals that are incredibly huge and powerful, entered the expanded summon monster list during the last expansion.  Their addition is simple: animals make up a much smaller part of the list than they did at lower level. The list already includes “dire” and “giant” animals. Megafauna is just the next logical step for these. Now someone that wants to summon only animals has more options and can build a theme around the creatures they want to summon.

Ultimately, that is why we are doing this: so someone can build the character they want instead of the only what is available. That is why there are so many classes and archetypes. This way, you can play how you want instead of only with what the core book as to offer.

Pathfinder: Summon Monster V Unchained

We are now officially half way through the summon monster lists and this is where expanding the list of creatures to summon changes from a “want” to a problem that needs to be addressed. If you have not seen our previous expanded lists, check out summon monster I, summon monster II, summon monster III, and summon monster IV.

For summon monster at lower levels, the number of monsters on the list that requires a template dominate, making the number of creatures a good or evil spellcaster can summon to be close to equal. However, summon monster V is where the number of creatures with a predetermined subtype that do not get a template increases and the number of templated creatures drops. Compared to the original summon monster IV list, the number of template-requiring monsters on summon monster V drops by nearly 60% and the number of subtyped monsters increase by 75%. The problem is: there are a whole lot less creatures with the Good subtype rather than the Evil subtype, and this problem persists for all the rest of the summon monster lists. The reason why is very simple: The original Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Bestiary was loaded with monsters for a typical adventuring party to fight. Subsequent Bestiaries rounded out the world by describing their good counterparts, but those creatures were never added to the summon monster list. Evil outsiders still outnumber the good outsiders, but by expanding the list, a good character summoning monsters now has options that they did not have before.

Pathfinder: Summon Monster IV Unchained

These past two weeks, we shared with you our take on expanding the summon monster lists. Find the expanded lists for summon monster I, summon monster II, and summon monster III by clicking on these spells. Today we are sharing with you the list for summon monster IV. Make sure to share these with your friends. These are a great help to many spellcasters.

Summon monster IV is where we move into the more fun monsters. Between lions, dire apes and wolves, and giant ants, we are well beyond the animals most people encounter and are into the dangerous animals. Add on a celestial or fiendish template and these creatures are downright scary. Of all the lists that need expanding, this one needs it the least, at least in my own opinion. The reason being is that the players can get summon monster IV by 7th level and not many games survive many levels beyond this. This makes it all the more important that these monster be darn cool, which the base list achieves. Having said that, it can be cooler. With giant chameleons, vultures, and seahorses, dire weasels, and a great white shark you have your choice of awesome templated animals to tackle your enemies with.

Pathfinder: Summon Monster III Unchained

Today we share with you the third in our Summon Monster Unchained series. The first in the series can be found here, and the second in the series is here.

It is about this time I should point out several omissions from this list. For those wanting a more Asian-influenced game will not find the oni on the summoned monster lists, the first of them should appear on this list just as many archons, angels, azatas and other outsiders are making their first appearances. It is rather unfortunate that these and similar outsiders are not on this list. The reason for their absence lies in the fact that they are native outsiders instead of extraplanar outsiders. This matters in that aasimars, tieflings, couatl, genies, and similar outsider creatures are all of the native outsider variety and not a one are on the original summon monster. Following this pattern other native outsiders are excluded from this list. Custom spells should be allowed to summon such creatures, but this series of spells should not do so.

We hope you enjoy this list.

Pathfinder: Summon Monster II Unchained

We mentioned before that every Friday we will be posting an expanded list of creatures to summon with the summon monster spells, using Paizo’s bestiaries. There simply is no reason why you can summon a giant frog or a horse but cannot summon a giant tick or a camel. So we are helping you to expand your summon monster table. Earlier this week we shared with you the list for expanding summon monster I. Today we bring you the list for summon monster II. All these monsters are balanced against those created for the original summon monster list.

Edit: Originally, I had the summon monster III here. I have since updated it to the corect list. Thank you John for pointing that out.
