Description
Ever wanted to play Yuna in DoD?

Over the course of this skill's career, you gain the ability to summon the avatars of six gods and demigods. Shakaaz, the brutal God of Mustaches; Rruk, the shapeshifter God of Trickery; Citadel, the Ascended Demigod of Constructs and Resilience; Illumina, the Raven Scribe, Goddess of Light and Literature; Rutaus the Dragon-King, Ascended Demigod of the Hoard; and finally Caelestia, the ethereal Goddess of the Heavens. These powerful allies will aid you in your attempts to erase the lich Dredmor from the world.

========

This is a very involved support skill, usable by anyone with a decent mana pool. Rather than give a rundown of what the skill does, I'm going to tell you how it works.

The first level of this skill summons the most basic form of summon: a blobby. However, whenever you cast one of the more advanced spells in this school, you acquire a summoning mode. When in a summoning mode, the summoning circle will summon a different monster.

Furthermore, the advanced spells of this school are multipurpose. Each one changes your summoning mode, but also gives a different buff (if you target your summon) or debuff (if you target your enemy). If you're interested in specifics, you can dig in the XML. I'm fairly confident you'll be able to figure out from the spell's descriptions and naming patterns what the basic gist of their functions are.

This is a first version. The summons are unique creatures and are eyeballed; I have not done extensive testing with them, though I expect feedback will change them over the course of this mod's lifespan. Of note: several of the summons have casting ability. However, due to the way the charm effect works, summoned creatures don't cast spells. At this time, then, their casting is broken. I have notified the devs about this (since it's an issue with the main game as well: charming an octo will make it use its weak physical attack rather than use its missiles, for instance) and I hope it'll be fixed soon. In the interim, enjoy.

You WILL need RotDG and YHTNTEP in order to use this mod. Rruk, Illumina, and Caelestia use assets from those expansions.

I'm don't understand why you took such a brilliant concept and ruined it with ponies.
