I'm playing a summoner in Anima. I've gone through the book and there is a startling lack of things that I can use to summon - which makes me rather weak, as my main ability doesn't have many options.

Are there more creatures provided elsewhere, and if so, where?

    \$\begingroup\$ Unrelatedly, it is nice to see people playing this game. I was skeptical about it when Wen-M first started working on the art for it. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ We are still skeptical due to the lack of material for summoners and casters and a general lack of experience with the system but we are trouping through it. \$\endgroup\$

There is a book of monsters, quite extensive.

'Those Who Walked Among Us'.

Probably Gaia, Volume One whould have some examples of monsters, althougt I have not read this one.

    \$\begingroup\$ Other option is to create your own, unique creatures with the guideline of the core book. You assign a level to the creature, a Gnosis and build it like that. Goes without saying, but the GM should carefully see (or even do them him/her self) that the creatures are balanced for your style of play. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Yup, a good method is to tell your GM "I want to be able to summon this, this and that", and he will make them for you. Don't do it during a game session, though... :) \$\endgroup\$ Commented May 22, 2013 at 14:16
