    Summon Monster I to IX Module for PFRPG

    Months ago, I have decided that a module for Summon Monster I to IX Module for PFRPG is needed that has effects for all the NPCs that one may summon, but I was too busy redoing my my current campaign. A week ago I finished that. I asked for information on coding XML for the planned Summon Monster module, and Kelrugem and Talyn answered my questions. I was convinced that the project was possible by Talyn. I did realize that I could not do the coadding, however Talyn volunteered to do the coadding to organize the new module. Power attack has been adjusted.

    Finally I was done, and Talyn put it together faster then I thought possible, "On the Fly"! Thank you Talyn for your expertise, and Kelrugem for the support!

    This is what the module looks like.

    The creatures have effects for Augmented Summoning, Celestial/Fiendish Templates, Shadow creature Template, spells, feats and abilities. There is only a limited selection of elemental types: Air, Earth, Fire, and Water. The Young is added as a template, I did not do anything for Young Giant damage.

    Here is the new Summon Monster I to IX Module 2.0, Talyn thank you for your help. I guess I needed to transfer every bit of code.
    PFRPG Summon Monster 2.0.mod


    Very important, you will need to download bmos disease tracker extension and maladies module to open the NPCs in this module.

    Link is here.

    Load Disease tracker extension.

    If you don't wish to have a disease tracker, here is a module with out it.

    PFRPG Summon Monster 2.1.mod

    I got my power attack effect from an old module.

    Great work with this, but there are some faults.
    The first one is a tough one. Smite evil from celestial template is not the same as smite evil from Paladins. It is not 100% clear, but it does not say that it works as paladins ability, therefore it does not.
    If you wanted it to work as paladin smite evil you have forgot the bypasses damage reduction part of smite evil.

    The only thing it does is +Charisma to hit (if positive) and +HD damage, but only vs evil and one designated target. So your effects should be:
    IFT: custom(Smite Evil), ALGIN(evil); ATK: [CHA]; DMG: [LVL]
    If they have negative charisma you just cut out the ATK part and make it:
    IFT: custom(Smite Evil), ALGIN(evil); DMG: [LVL]

    The LVL and CHA works when using them from the creatures NPC sheet in the combat tracker even though the wiki say PC only tag It will save you much time to just copy paste one of these two lines instead of manually typing in the numbers.

    Grizzly bear has SR:8, it should have SR: 10.
    Really nice of you to put in SR as an effect even though you have to have Kels extension to use it 100% (it is still information for those that don`t use that extension)

    Really nice of you to include power attack for creatures that have that feat.
    If you want more work, then I have noticed that you have set casts for poisons and stuns and things like that. But not trample (at least not for those two I looked at, the Elephant and one other creature)
    That would be a reflex save for half damage, and set it up with: Strenght based save + half hit dice. Damage would be (damage dice given in monster stat block) + 1.5 x STR. Since we have augumented summoning, in order to get it correct we have to set it up with a strenght based save and damage instead of a static one.

    Thank you for the review, I will re-do as much as possible.

    I consulted a friend of mine, and he explained that the damage bonus is the damage type damage type of the weapon.

    Very interesting FG actually types the bonus as the weapon one is already using.

    The LVL and CHA works when using them from the creatures NPC sheet in the combat tracker even though the wiki say PC only tag It will save you much time to just copy paste one of these two lines instead of manually typing in the numbers.
    I will do this.

    Grizzly bear has SR:8, it should have SR: 10.
    I will check, CR id 4 so should be CR +5 = 9

    Really nice of you to put in SR as an effect even though you have to have Kels extension to use it 100% (it is still information for those that don`t use that extension)
    I did this in SQ for the ones that had SR listed on the d20pfsrd.com, but I think I will have to delete that and put it in the effect. I have tested this, and if one adds the effect and the SR is listed in the SQ the SQ SR will be used by the combat tracker. I may as well be consistent. The added benefit is that these animals may be used as animals or as summoned creatures.

    Really nice of you to include power attack for creatures that have that feat.
    If you want more work, then I have noticed that you have set casts for poisons and stuns and things like that. But not trample (at least not for those two I looked at, the Elephant and one other creature)
    That would be a reflex save for half damage, and set it up with: Strength based save + half hit dice. Damage would be (damage dice given in monster stat block) + 1.5 x STR. Since we have augmented summoning, in order to get it correct we have to set it up with a strength based save and damage instead of a static one.
    I will have to look at this, I did it for some of the creatures especially toward the end of the list.
    Fixed Auroch*, Bison*, Elephant* and Mastodon (elephant)*. Also added Power Attack to Elephant*. Added Cleave to Giants.

    Thanks you!

    I am thinking of adding both effects in case of charisma buffs. Let the GM decide if the creature is buffed or not. Too bad one can't say if the CHA bonus is < 0, than it is 0.
