Derakon is on a distinguished road
Not having played DaJ, what are the impacts on gameplay of having illusory monsters? How do we handle monster memory for the spells -- when does the player learn that the summons were illusory? What if we have a monster that can summon both illusory and real versions of the same monster type? If the player learns they're illusions on seeing the spell cast for the first time, then on subsequent castings they "ought" to be able to tell if the summons are illusions or not, but cannot because the monster memory has already been filled in.

Don't mind me, I'm just being difficult.
