Cat Summoning Tables

As a follow up to my Cat Summoner idea, I compiled this list from the various AD&D 2e Monstrous Manual and Compendiums (Compendia?). "Normal" cats would stick more to the spirit of the idea, but I also included optional monsters with cat parts. The list goes up to level 13, but the Monster Summoning spells only go to level 7, so that's where I stopped. To give you a taste of the rest, the only monster I listed at Level 13 is a Render. I, personally, would consider summoning a Render to either be a final act of life-or-death desperation or an act of Chaotic Evil. Enjoy!
Monster Summoning 1 (Level 3 Spell) Level 1 Cat, Crypt : Normal (Compendium 2) Cat, Small: Domestic Cat, Small: Wild Cat, Winged: Lesser (Compendium 1)
(Optional) Tiger Squirrel
Monster Summoning 2 (Level 4 Spell) Level 2 Cat, Great: Giant Lynx Cat, Winged: Tressym (Compendium 1) (Optional) Feystag (Compendium 1) (Optional) Tabaxi

The Amazing Adventures of Jemmabink, the very same adventures that encouraged me to leave the comforts of the Underdark and travel to the World Above, these adventures are no more easy to believe now that I live them side-by-side with the legend Jemmabink herself.

The lock on the iron door would not yield to our key, and we weren't quite ready to force it. We retraced our steps back to the antechamber to try another route. There was a door ajar on the east wall, just the way we left it. Jemmabink and Nina opened the door to a hallway. The hallway had two doors across from each other nearby and another two further on. The second door to the south lined up with the iron door we couldn't open. At its end, the hallway turned south.
When the figh…

Cat Summoner

What is the feasibility/playability of a Summoner who only summoned cats? I bet you could find different strength cats in various monster books to equate to every summoning spell: House cats, lynx, bobcat, cougar, cheetah, jaguar, leopard, lion, tiger, sabertooth, etc.I think it would be fun, but I'm a big cat fan (that is, a fan of cats larger than house cats).

The party was four weeks into their stay at Barak Varr after finding the latest talisman. Vaervenshyael was hungry a lot. She had put on over 5 lbs, while still doing all the activity she was used to doing. Some mornings she woke up mad. Very mad.

On the day she thought she might finally talk the party into returning to Padua (after all, Tankred's sword would not be finished for months yet), the dwarf guard entered the inn where the party was staying and requested the party join them at the gates to the Temple of Verena. Apparently the gates had been closed for some time, and the party members were the last ones seen coming or goi…

Tankred kicked open yet another set of double doors. Inside was a pile of bones with a seat on top. In the seat was a humanoid in disturbing armor, borne by those Chosen of Chaos. The creature's helmet was shaped like the visage of Abdul Al Shar. He exuded chaos and terror. Johann and Vaervenshyael failed their terror tests. Tankred and Wilhelm attacked.

Before the battle was over, Vaervenshyael failed 3 Terror tests, which lead to 3 Insanity Points, and 1 mental disability. For the disability, she rolled Host of Fiends. She will have to pass a Willpower test daily or be taken over by an Aspect of Khorne! This fits in perfectly with the campaign and her background.

After Tankred unleased Ulric's Fury and Wilh…

Did I Play an X Card?

It finally happened. My Warhammer character failed a Terror test, and then failed her Insanity check. The GM said we'd get around to finding my disability later, and my character failed 3 Terror checks in a row, so I had plenty of time during combat to look up the options of mental disabilities.

By the time combat was done, I had looked through them all. There were some that seemed to fit my situation better than others, and there were two I wasn't interested in playing at all.

I spend every workday dealing intimately with addicts. It gets to be very taxing at times. During my game time, I don't want to have to roleplay a weirdroot or mandrake addict or an alcoholic. That's just no fun to me, though I could probably do it with uncanny accuracy. When the time came to roll, I stated these feelings out in the open.

Luckily I rolled one of the disabilities that seemed to fit my situation perfectly. I'm sure the GM would have let me reroll if I had rolled one of the dis…

Tankred was impatient to get this quest over with. He kicked in the first door on the left, into what looked like a stable. Two gunshots rang out from a wraith-like creature wielding pistols. Vaervenshyael tried to shove Tankred away from the doorway and out of the line of fire. Unfortunately, the creature's aura held Vaervenshyael in the grip of fear and she couldn't move.

When Vaervenshyael broke the spell of fear and she could move, she wanted to stay as far away from the monstrosity as possible. She pulled her own pistols and fired...with very little effect. She was forced to pull her hand weapons and engage. Her first attack with her rapier killed the creature that Tankred had beaten down.

The straw in t…
