One of the eight schools of magic recognized throughout Golarion, conjuration focuses on summoning magical effects and creatures. A wizard that specializes in conjuration is called a conjurer.

Subschools

Sometimes teleportation magic has unexpected consequences (for some).

Every conjuration spell is classified into one of five subschools.[1]

Calling

Creation

For other meanings of "Creation", please see Creation (disambiguation).

Healing

Summoning

For the summoner class, see summoner.

For creatures, most conjuration takes one of two forms: summoning and calling. Most summoned creatures are drawn to the caster for a fixed period of time and return to their home plane when destroyed in their summoned plane. Most called creatures permanently occupy the plane into which they are conjured, and persist until destroyed.[2]

Teleportation

Focused arcane schools

Schools of magic may be further specialized by some wizards who adopt focused arcane schools and those associated with the school of conjuration are shown below.

Creation

Extradimension

Conjurers can further specialize in creating extradimensional spaces and demiplanes, which are often valuable talents for smugglers.[3]

A conjurer.

At the Acadamae, Korvosa's premier magical institute for the instruction of specialist wizards, conjuration is favored over the other eight schools of study and is a required component of every student's final examinations.[4] An important benchmark for all students at the Acadamae is the summoning of an imp whether they are conjurers or not. Many of these imps are released into the area surrounding the school and each year an aerial battle erupts between the imps and Korvosa's native population of pseudodragons.[citation needed]

Conjurers, especially if they are also diabolists, find considerable favor in Cheliax.[4] Living in a country where the state religion is the worship of Asmodeus, Cheliax's citizens tend to respect all arcane spellcasters due to their assumed connections to Hell.[citation needed]

Other groups known to deal with conjuration include the opposing Blackfire Adepts and Riftwardens, the Irriseni Bloodstone Conservatory, genie binders, Hellknights, Nidalese shadowcallers, and Osirian mages.[4]

Sin magic

During the reign of the runelords of ancient Thassilon, conjuration was associated with the sin of sloth, and was therefore the specialty of the ruler of the realm of Cyrusian.[5]
