  1. Traditionally in D&D, Evocation magic involved the creation of energy of some sort—so Magic Missile & Fireball definitely fall under that category. Creating something physical was conjuration, of which summoning was a subschool indicating the subject is not being created but brought from somewhere else.

  2. Might be rambling here, but from Wikipedia:

    Evocation is the act of calling or summoning a spirit, demon, god or other supernatural agent, in the Western mystery tradition.

    Just wanted to point out that the classification in most D&D-esque games a pretty arbitrary.

  3. I think that “summon” (in a RpG like this one) should be “relegated” for creatures, spirits etc., while “evocation” should be the creation of some form of “energy”, matter etc.

  4. Yeah, you’re litterally summoning a thing from somewhere else, not just making something from nothing.

    But hey, easy hack if you want to change it.
