Wonderful news! I bow to you guys' determination (or obstinacy Wink ). We'll definitely buy the whole thing and print 2 or 3 copies of it ourselves if shipping is too expensive.

Heavy stuff above about airsoft and etc.- Wanna see something to break your brain?

Look up Stella Women's Academy, High School Division Class C3.

Seems pretty tame.  My high school had a trap shooting club that met at school and flung traps OVER the school.  Granted, they wouldn't be able to do that now ...

Thanksgiving?  Oh, you mean Black Thursday, the first shopping day of the Christmas season!  Seriously, its getting to the point where that's what Thanksgiving is now, basically the food binge you do so you can survive the long lines outside the stores for a month.  Tongue

Sadly.  Though me and mine will be offering thanks today.  And NOT standing in line.

Hey.  Just posting to apologise for being away so long.  Can't promise when I will be around, happy for you to do with Drin whatever you like.  With medical school finals coming up, then a spot of running around the jungle on elective and then being a junior doctor, I can't really commit to this long-haul at all.  Sorry to bail as well :S

Q: What do you call a guy who graduates last in medical school with a D average?
A: Doctor.

Wink

Get out there and heal some people.

Oh to be sure VC has some problems.  It came out years ago, after all.  But I think the hope is that if it does well enough, then Sega might release HD remakes of the two PSP sequels on Steam, too.  I don't know if the sequels were an actual improvement, but I'm sure there's a lot of people who'd like to find out!

Gah, was writing this at work and got sidetracked for a couple hours, so Morg has already made most of my points, and more eloquently as well. Oh well, not gonna waste the time writing up all this.

It's totally fine for this spell not to have a combat application, especially given that out of both the 'parent' spells only Move Water has what you'd call combat applications, and using a Concentration spell to effectively create the aquatic version of difficult terrain.

Likewise with including an Earthquake-like effect into the spell, there should be some mention of what happens to those stuck in the area when everything's happening, but a straight-up 'take a bunch of damage+sprawled' doesn't feel right to me. Guess it should depend on how exactly the spell will work, how long it will take, if the entire area is changed at once, etc. I think the 'cannot damage structures' bit should be kept in, if only to encourage indirectly messing with them (i.e. creating a deep and wide moat around the structure).

Now, that said, looking over the initial spell again... 'create new terrain'. Is this spell supposed to be a generic 'magical terraforming' spell, or is it more a 'create land/water/vegetation where there is none' type deal? Hammering down exactly what we're expecting of this would be step 1, I think. Given that most other Creation spells creating something new wholecloth (acid, clouds, food/water etc) it would make sense to follow that guideline. Though that raises some interesting questions... Plopping a mountain down on a empty plain fits the bill, but what if you've already got the mountain and want a plain?
