Wasn't sure where to put this particular issue as for sub-genre.

I'm playing a level 12 drow cleric of Lolth Destruction/Spider domains. I have been able to cast create undead since last night. None of my negative energy spells are able to target my summon (negative energy ray, inflict wounds, harm) for some reason. I was able to cast vigor, sanctuary, and use healing kits on my undead.

I asked a DM about it in game and they suggested posting about it here.

Thank you,
-Drow4d20

I reported this months ago, privately, as it was at a time I did not necessarily want my fellow players to know my character toted undead and negative energy as her whims pleased.

Its related to our custom summoning system and the manner in which it uses 'domination' mechanics. Neutral or dominated creatures cannot be targeted with any Inflict spell so your only choices are Vigor, Regen, Greater Restoration or casting Mass Inflict as an AoE targeted at your undead summon's feet.

Oh okay so I could set it to vanilla in the magic settings for the character possibly. I wouldn't be able to have a choice as to which undead I summoned, but I would possibly be able to use negative energy spells on them to heal them. I'll see what happens :D

'Fraid not. This server uses custom summon settings which trump all vanilla settings. You're going to have to learn to settle for Heal Kits, Mass Inflict Wounds, or nothing at all. :(

I've found that a few buffs, extended vigor, and a heal kit every now and then works very well with the ghast. I don't even feel the need to waste a harm spell on him. When I begin using AOE necromancy spells it will just be a bonus :D

Also... The summoning system is awesome... If I couldn't choose to summon the ghast I would have died so many times by now :P and being able to summon a fiendish spider by choice was great for RP.
