If a hero went inside a colossal dragons stomach and started stabbing him in there would the dragon be able to use summon monster within itself in order to fight the hero that is in his stomach?

  • \$\begingroup\$ @HeyICanChan line of effect, definitely, but not line of sight. The only thing between the dragon and the hero is the dragon, and you don't block line of effect for yourself. It would be just silly. \$\endgroup\$ – Mindwin Dec 10 '17 at 15:33

No. As per the SRD, under Conjuration:

A creature or object brought into being or transported to your location by a conjuration spell cannot appear inside another creature or object, nor can it appear floating in an empty space. It must arrive in an open location on a surface capable of supporting it.

  • \$\begingroup\$ That's the problem. The inside of a dragon is capable of supporting a creature summoned inside of it. \$\endgroup\$ – Maiko Chikyu Dec 10 '17 at 16:20

    \$\begingroup\$ @MaikoChikyu even though that’s true, it doesn’t negate the preceding sentence. “Cannot appear inside another creature” reads rather clear and explicit to me. \$\endgroup\$ – FrancisJohn Dec 10 '17 at 16:25

    \$\begingroup\$ @MaikoChikyu “surface capable of supporting it” means it can't be liquid or air or other surface incapable of supporting the weight of the creature. It's not taking about environments or atmospheres that can support life. \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie Dec 10 '17 at 17:47

    \$\begingroup\$ @MaikoChikyu: In any case, the stomach of a dragon certainly does not count as "an open location." \$\endgroup\$ – Ilmari Karonen Dec 10 '17 at 19:45

    \$\begingroup\$ @FrancisJohn : one might nitpick the meaning of "another". Does it mean other than the summoner, or other than the summoned? I guess the purpose of this role was to prohibit telefragging. \$\endgroup\$ – vsz Dec 10 '17 at 21:46
