My next beef with magery is the summon creature spell. Its not even good enough to be annoying lol! Both blade spirit and summon creature take a long time to cast, so where is the payoff? This version of Summon Creature does what it should have 100% time...Spawn a mount! Now a mage doesn't need a horse he can summon a familiar. One of two possible spawns. A White Charger of the Fallen which cures the rider of poison(unicorn) and does the Kirin special mounted ability(force of nature) Other possibility is a polar bear(we love rideable polar bears man ) and he heals owner like a Cu Sidhe. Both these creature with Greater Healing support will take down a dragon, nice for a mage cartographer.
Idea for an update might be to recognize the mage's karma level and spawn evil looking creatures for negative karma mage types
