A summoning is a spell that draws an entity and allows the summoner to command the entity.

Performing certain summoning spells requires a circle on the floor, defined by linear marks, such as nailed copper strips.[1] Especially significant spells need imbued circles, which take many people working over many years to create; only two imbued circles exist on Nantucket: in New Atlantis' Convocation building and Lord Magician's Westlands estate.[2] Canceling a summoning spell necessitates access to the summoner or the circle that was used.

Spell paraphernalia may include chalk, knives, herbs, or blood. Those who use blood to summon often have bloodletting scars on fingers and wrists.[3]
