Apologies if this is a newbie question..
I'm about to provoke a fellow magus into declaring wizards war on me, and obviously I don't want a fair fight.
But there may be witnesses and i don't want my sodalis to be seen helping me.
I have an item I want to design, and i don't know if it's actually possible, or if I've overlooked any obvious flaws, so i'd welcome opinions..
The item will be a silver cup, with a shaving taken from it which i'll wear from my necklace and will act as an arcane connection to the cup.
I'll enchant the cup with a version of "View the distant scene" so that the cup will display an image around itself (hologram style) of the surroundings of the necklace.
What I also want to do is enchant the cup with a version of "opening the intangible tunnel", so that spells can be cast through the cup > necklace link.
The plan is then that we sit an arcane connection to the enemy magus in the cup, my sodalis hang around in our covenant watching events unfold via the cup. I launch my attack, and my sodalis cast offensive spells on the enemy magus via the arcane connection to him, using the cup > necklace link as the intangible tunnel.
So to any witnesses, the spells hitting the enemy magus will appear to come from the item I'm wearing, rather than from just out of nowhere (which would probably lead them to look for intangible tunnels).
Does this seem like a workable idea?
Have I missed anything obvious?
Would my own parma protect the necklace and inadvertently prevent my sodalis's spells from coming through it? Or as the spells are 'outgoing' would they not have to worry about my parma?
Any opinions welcome..
