Article written by Uziel & Joe Mashuga

Within the larger school of Conjuration magic is the subschool of Summoning. This subschool specializes in spells that instantly brings creatures or objects to the spell caster's vicinity. If a summoning spell is ended, the creature/object is instantly sent back to its original location. A "summoned" creature vanishes and slowly reforms if it is slain, unlike creatures brought by a spell from the Calling subschool.

The summoning subschool is an invention of the "3.0" edition of the Dragonlance game (though the conjuration school was known as conjuration/summoning for a time, and sorcerers used to cast spells from a "summoning" sphere of sorcery).
