Magic summons was a spell that caused the caster to be spontaneously served with legal documents.[1]

Effects[edit | edit source]

Upon casting of magic summons, an extradimensional process-server appeared and delivered the caster a summons to court. This could be for any offense, chosen seemingly at random but possibly for the murder of Drawmij. The server than vanished.[1]

The caster was expected to immediately pay a fine of 500 gp (to whom is unclear) or else be teleported to another plane called "the night court". They might then be sentence to imprisonment for a term of 1–100 years.[1]

Component[edit | edit source]

Verbal and somatic components were required.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The spell was invented by the notorious mage Nimrod of Nump of the Misbegotten Realms.[1]
