Shadow conjuration can mimic any sorcerer or wizard conjuration (summoning) or conjuration (creation) spell of 3rd level or lower.
Emphasis on the point of interpretive contention Black Knight and I have had in our extensive offline discussions on this topic.Shadow Evocation:
You tap energy from the Plane of Shadow to cast a quasi-real, illusory version of a sorcerer or wizard evocation spell of 4th level or lower. (For a spell with more than one level, use the best one applicable to you.)
Much (most of the discussion) has centered around what is counted as a Sorcerer/Wizard spell.
- Is it just spells listed in the books (plus researched spells)
- Is it any possible spell that could be researched (Such as Malcom's Magic Missile from earlier in the thread)
- Is there a significant difference Sorcerer/Wizard list and "your Sorcerer/Wizard list"
- Does a spell have to be in the Sorcerer/Wizard list to be a Sorcerer/Wizard spell?
My contention is this:
The Sorcerer/Wizard list is the Spells Listed in the books plus any researched/known from outside those lists.
* Thus, the evocation banning Shadow slinger can cast shadow versions of new researched evocations of
which they learn. (Learn is knowledge of or experience with not the SPellcraft check to put in book
Thus, if an Evocation banning shadow slinger witnessed/learned enough of Malcom's Magic Missle then he could Shadow Mimic the spell. (I think adding a Spellcraft check to understand it would be reasonable but it would be a houserule.)
Sorcerer Spell List
From SRD: A sorcerer casts arcane spells which are drawn primarily from the sorcerer/wizard spell list. He can cast any spell he knows without preparing it ahead of time, the way a wizard or a cleric must (see below).
From Player's Handbook: A sorcerer casts arcane spells (the same type of spells available to bards and wizards), which are drawn primarily from the sorcerer/wizard spell list (Page 192). He can cast any spell he knows without preparing it ahead of time, the way a wizard or a cleric must (see below).
The Wizard Class has very similar text basically trading out Wizard for Sorcerer in the text.
Emphasis mine as this seems to direct us to what is officially considered the Sorcerer/Wizard Spell list which is given on page 192 of PHB. But that does not clarify if Sorcerer/Wizard list should be synonymous with Sorcerer/Wizard spell.
