Many practitioners of the mystic arts can draw forth the power to summon a creature to fight at their sides. Wizards summon elemental creatures and lesser demons. Invokers call angels to their sides and bid them fight in the name of a god. Druids and other primal magic-users take a slightly different approach. When a druid calls an animal to fight at his side, the creature is there as a willing participant and ally. A druid can rely on his summoned animals to fight on without direction.
