View Full Version : summon monster question

Does the hit dice of the summon monster go up as you level?

if a sorcerer used summon monster 1 to summon a dire rat at level 4 would it have 4 hit dice?

No, it's always the same creature with normal stats.

Certain feats and abilities like Augment Summoning increase its power, but the spells don't scale on their own, except in so far as there are upgraded versions at every level.

ok, if I used summon monster 2 to summon a dire rat would the HD still be the same as the lvl 1 spell?

yes but you would have more then one rat

thanks. kept thinking the lower summons improved in HD slightly as you went up in level.
