1 Answer 1


Flaming Sphere AOE — I don't think this needs the conjuration or summoning tags.

  • The question isn't materially about summoning, it's asking about a fireball that happens to get summoned. If I asked about how to make a weapon attack with my axe, that I happened to summon from over there a minute ago, the question still wouldn't be a summoning question, it would be a weapon attack question.
  • From what I understand of the discussion in About conjuration and necromancy, then and New enchantment tag, not sure about this, tagging by what school a spell happens to belong in isn't useful.

We tag questions that are about the activity of raising undead & doing similar hijinks: we don't tag a healing spell with [necromancy] just because it's in the necromancy school. We should tag questions if and when the question is materially about summoning a thing.

My Wizard is conjuring a piece of the sun. How will this affect my setting? — should have the tag. He's summoning a piece of the sun. He scried its location (and got his eyes fixed afterwards, phew), and wants to make it wink out of existence over there and wink into existence over here. That's , and it's materially about the activity of doing that. (The answers dive into "I don't think that counts for the summoning spell you're using" territory.) It's also materially about other things, like what kind of total havoc and/or burnination this is going to unleash.

Does that sound reasonable?

  • \$\begingroup\$ I had exactly these thoughts myself, yes. Just wanted to highlight edge cases before doing things unilaterally. \$\endgroup\$
