Undefeatable Friday - Heraldic Summoning

Heraldic Summoning (Metamagic)
            Great men have always wished to associate the power of legendary beasts with their deeds. You turn these noble symbols into flesh and blood creatures: the dragon on a knight’s shield or the lion decorating the sign of a tavern suddenly come to life to do your bidding.
            Prerequisite: Augment Summoning
            Benefit: A number of times per day equal to 3 + your Primary Casting Modifier, you may spontaneously cast any summoning spell, up to the highest level summoning spell you can cast. You must be within 60 ft and clearly able to see some heraldic or artistic representation or an animal, such as a tapestry, painting, tattoo or knightly seal. You summon a version of the animal depicted in the artwork, possibly with necessary templates applied. If no exact match for the heraldic creature exists, summon the closest monster available from one of the summoning spell lists, and describe it as resembling the artistic creation.

            If you summon a heraldic creature from a design work by a specific character, the summoned creature receives a +2 morale bonus on attack and damage rolls against that specific creature.
