Summonables: Summon Monster II

One of the hardest things about using summon monster spells if you're a new player or DM (or even if you're experienced) is that you have to apply templates to most of the creatures you can summon with these spells. And if your character has the Augment Summoning feat, then you also have to recalculate anything in the creature's stat block that has to do with Strength or Constitution.

The summon monster spell chain is useful, but it's challenging to players and Dungeon Masters alike because it summons a lot of different creatures, applying the celestial or fiendish templates many of them. The Augment Summoning feat from the Core Rules additionally modifies the summoned creature's Strength and Constitution scores, which changes its hit points, Fortitude save, and usually its grapple modifier, attack and damage modifiers, and skill check modifiers as well.
