The above works. I just want to avoid "moves" by itself as taken literally it could cover just about anything. I've seen things in Darkon translated to mean things they were never meant to mean a few years after they're printed. I'd like to avoid that here if we're changing it anyway.

Agreed. I think looking up or down is fine, for instance. In fact, there should be NO situation in Darkon where we ever tell people to not look around at what's happening in their vicinity. It's just not safe. Pay attention to your surroundings at all times, whether that means looking up from a spellbook as you're reading, or looking behind you when "frozen" to make sure people aren't about to backpedal into you and jack up your ankle, say.

If this is going into the rulebook, could we find a way to explain what happens when a cleric's/druid's shield takes a javelin mid-read?

Every year or three we get a discussion on what happens if the cleric/druid is turtled up behind the shield reading and a javelin hits the shield face.

Could we say something like:
"If the caster (or their <<shield/garb/equipment/other-useful-noun>>) speaks, fights, moves before the spell is 'held', is moved by another participant, or is hit by a weapon (including shafts) or spellball before completing the invocation line, the spell is negated and the spell points are forfeited"

I, personally, think 'Garb' would be best choice since it eliminates 'the javelin/arrow just skimmed past me, it only hit garb' argument.

Why would that disrupt you? No weapon hits you, as long as you dont stop reading the spell, you are not disrupted.

Personally I dont think weapons that hit people under "skin" protections should be disrupted either if they keep reading, but I was outvoted.

So I can no longer blow up a mage and his body guards with a bow from a distance? This is crap. Darkon doesnt even look like Darkon anymore.

This seemed ot be the theme on the last page. Thus, I cant shoot a mage with a fireball in his hand, and blow him up.

Or is my reading comprehension at all time orc level?

I think the proposal kept the blowing up part for the mage, just dropped the aoe. of course I could be wrong too. It is a thursday and Im prepping for an awesome adventure sunday =)

My absolute fav story of my personal heroism in fighting involved shooting a mage and blowing him and his 3 body guards up. Sad that no longer can happen. (also, kudos for all 4 of them playing it right)

Yup in Jan or Dec I fireballed Roy and killed both him and Eliphas in the ensuing double fireball blast LOL

It was better in December then Fingers describes... He BARELY got me in radius, and my radius took down Eliphas, and Eliphas' radius took down one guardian...

It was like a trail of boom-boom-boom-boom....
