Summon Fog Ghost

Post by Lamoron » Thu Jul 04, 2019 8:07 am

My Nethermancer just recently got a hold of this spell, and a question arose after the first time I used it. The spell Summon Fog Ghost makes the Fog Ghost appear, and it immediately attacks the nearest target, so far so good.

What initiative does it act on in the following rounds though? We just used my Nethermancers initiative, but it technically doesn't state that anywhere in the spell description?

Acting on the Nethermancer's Initiative is easiest.

You could, in theory, figure out what it's Strength Rating should be, and use the Ally Spirit templates in the GM guide to figure it out... but there's no easy way to correlate those. Because spirit stat blocks and the like were developed/modified much later than spells. (One of a few early development mistakes I made.)

I would probably use 5+Nethermancer Circle if I wanted to have it on its own.
