Summons or spawned units are units brought onto the battlefield through magic spells (especially unique spells) or army abilities rather than being brought as part of a regular army. To balance the power of these abilities, summoned units will gradually lose health over time. In campaign mode, summoned units are not added into your army after a battle ends.


Most of these are classed as augment or explosion spells, but all summon new units.
