Baldur's Gate Wiki

Summon Fiend allows the wizard to summon a frenzied glabrezu.


Summon Fiend
More powerful than the 7th-level variant Cacofiend, casting this spell summons a frenzied demon or devil. This fiend will attack everyone in the area who is not protected by a Protection From Evil spell. Only desperate or suicidal wizards use this spell.

This spell interacts with the summoning cap in a way that's different than most summoning spells, in that summoned demons/devils do not add to the total towards the summoning cap (meaning, it's technically possible to summon as many demons/devils as you want). However, the spell still adheres to the cap, meaning you won't be able to summon a demon/devil if you already have 5 ordinary creatures summoned.

As a "GoodButRed" creature (i.e., technically allied to the party, but has a red circle), the Glabrezu gated in by this spell doesn't get a save against Otiluke's Resilient Sphere, just like what happens with regular (blue circle) allied creatures.

The scripted Remove Magic spell cast by the demon will be as a level 1 caster, and thus has very little chance of dispelling anything by this stage of the saga. Probably only a 1% chance.
