Sorry if this has been answered before (I did a search...honest):

Pg. 110: Spell Points: "...pays spell points equal to a spell's level..."

Do 0-level spells cost zero (0) spell points? 
If so, then they are limitless within a scene, correct? (e.g. everyone's vitality could be fully healed using Touch of Light, etc).

Yes. 0-level spells cost no spell points to cast, and so can be cast forever (unless you get crazy with spellcasting feats and end up raising the spell point cost in order to tweak an effect).

You still have to roll the casting check though.

Though if you plan on casting a spell as many as times a it takes to achieve a desired result your GM may choose to simply say it happens, as some do with touch of light and healing between combats.

That's what I generally do as well since I never found fully healing vitality between scenes to make things easy in SC2, let alone FC.

But it's a good counter if your players try and spend a hour between scenes or dungeon rooms or whatever casting Touch of Light.

This is intentional. There's a sidebar going into Spellbound that talks specifically about Touch of Light and other Level 0 spells that may not be entirely to everyone's taste, but in the RAW it's there to keep things simple and moving.

Don't forget! It's only Vitality. Doesn't heal Wounds. Smiley

Also note that it's the only healing spell the mage can cast on himself IIRC.

My party's mage had quite the surprise when he discovered he couldn't use cure wounds on himself.
