Magic Stone/ Pouch Syllable Reduction

Post by fingers630 » 2016-03-03

Current Rule:

Magic Stone
Rank 10 Druid Spell
1000 Syllables


This spell allows the Druid to hold one spell for later use. To hold a spell, the Druid must first cast Magical Stone, and subsequently cast the spell to be held, utilizing the material components for each. When the Druid is ready to cast the held spell, he simply opens the pouch and chants the invocation line for the held spell; the Druid cannot invoke the spell if he is mortally wounded or has a light wound to both arms.
A Druid may only have one spell held at a time; this spell is cancelled upon the Druid’s death. Only the casting Druid may invoke the held spell. While this spell is active, the Druid may not cast the spell which is stored in the stone, but may cast all other spells as normal.

Pouch
Rank 10 Mage Spell
1000 Syllables


This spell allows the Mage to hold one spell for later use. To hold a spell, the Mage must first cast Pouch, and subsequently cast the spell to be held, utilizing the material components for each. When the Mage is ready to cast the held spell, he simply opens the pouch and chants the invocation line for the held spell; the Mage cannot invoke the spell if he is mortally wounded or has a light wound to both arms.
A Mage may only have one spell Pouched at a time; this spell is cancelled upon the Mage’s death. Only the casting Mage may
invoke the Pouched spell. While this spell is active, the Mage may not cast the spell which is pouched, but may cast all other spells as normal.

Dispel Magic will nullify Pouch and any stored spells.

Proposed Change:

Syllable count reduced for these 2 spells from 1000 to 500.

Rationale- With the change to both spells in that you may not cast whatever spell is currently pouched/stoned until your pouch/stone spell has been released, and with the fact that you must cast these spells when you enter play after lay on has been called, the 1000 syllable count is very unreasonable.

Line Item Veto- If 500 words does not pass, change syllable count to 750 for each.
