Summoned creatures, orders and states

Postby demyse » Wed Sep 11, 2019 3:20 pm

For spells like Animate, Summon Demon and Morraine Warriors, are the summoned entities lively or alert when summoned, and what orders are they on when they are summoned?

Lively. I do need to add this into any animation invocations, if they're not already there.

Oh yes, sorry. Whatever orders their commander is; so whatever orders the wizard creating them is under.

I guess not, unless your general is nearby so he can change orders...

Although I'm pretty certain that if your 'On Hold' wizard summoned, animated, created...whatever a Frenzied creature then this would and should be on Attack Orders regardless of what orders the summoner, animator, creator is on..

Correct, frenzied units are subject to the compulsory orders rule.
