Pale Master summons progression
« on: March 25, 2017, 11:22:22 PM »
would switching the mummy warrior you receive on level 9 of pm with spectre be too much to ask for summons progression?

...

the reason I ask is because that mummy is probably one of the best summons they get...... and loosing it...for a spectre... is a downgrade

I'm not exactly sure why it's this way... but surely there is a reason to it and its likely somewhere on the forum, I haven't checked though, so I might be wrong. But I'm pretty sure this was mentioned before, I remember seeing something about that once.

I can't find that the question has ever been answered before, but here are a couple of previous topics that discussed this, particularly the second:

if PM was given even half CL progression for class levels it would fix the balance issues

and DC consideration should be the casters primary stat not only cha...

a widget with a single use per day long lasting summon.. maybe obtainable on 10th lvl would be icing on the cake

IIRC this is kinda a non-issue if Summon Greater Undead is working as intended. Spellcasters in Ravenloft have +2 ECL for animating undead, so at level 8 they'll get the spectre and at level 10 they'll get the vampire.
