I really think you are reading into my post too much. It's the difference between a Summonable and Conjurable Ally, one has a name, knows you and you have a relationship with it. The other is just a generic cannon fodder. I'm a firm believe if you're summoning whatever critter at least once a game session you should probably buy it as a character point-base ability. YMMV.

That's one way of doing it...but I don't like it, which is why I came up with my own method.
