Summon magical beasts for aid.
Summon (しょうかん, Shōkan?) is a skillset learned by the Summoner that calls a Summoned Monster into battle. By leveling up the Summoner, the command can call forth increasingly powerful creatures when assigned to another job. When a party member's job is Summoner, they can summon all the summoned monsters regardless of level. It is disabled if the user is silenced.
The summons in the RPGe fan-translation refers to them as a whole as espers, while in the Japanese version they are simply referred to as summoned monsters, and the PlayStation translation refers to them as summoned beasts.
The summons' effects vary, but most of them deal elemental damage to opponents. The elemental attacks can thus be boosted with equipment that has an elemental affinity. The main difference between summon spells and Black Magic spells is that there is no split damage property; while Black and White spells have their power factors halved when using a single-target/multi-target modular spell to affect multiple targets, summon spells hit all targets for their full power. This makes summons more useful against multi-target bosses or groups of enemies, particularly summons of similar level and MP cost to Black Magic spells.
The Level 1 summons are bought from a shop in Walse. Many must be obtained by defeating the summoned monster in battle; some are random encounters and some are bosses in dungeons. Some are obtained by finding the scene that gives the party the summon.
The Summoner's Call ability lets the user summon any of the obtained monsters without MP cost. It is possible to skip early summons in order to increase the odds of later, more powerful summons occurring as a result.
Summon abilities give characters the Summoner's base Magic based on the following formula:
- Magic = Summoner Base Magic - 4 * (5 - Summoner Job Level)
However, the value of the base Magic granted in this way is capped at the Summoner's base.
Thus the base Magic stat for a character with Summon equipped would be as follows:
- Level 1 = 41 base Magic
- Level 2 = 45 base Magic
- Level 3 = 49 base Magic
- Level 4 = 53 base Magic
- Level 5 = 57 base Magic
- Level 6 = 57 base Magic
It takes 15 AP to learn Summon level 1, 30 to learn level 2, 45 for level 3, 60 for level 4, and 100 for level 5. For 500 more AP the Summoner can learn "Call," another summon ability that performs a random summon for 0 MP.

Evocation is the act of calling upon or summoning a spirit, demon, god or other supernatural agent, in the Western mystery tradition. Comparable practices exist in many religions and magical traditions and may employ the use of mind-altering substances with and without uttered word formulas.
