A maga character I am playing has been thinking about protecting her sanctum from some kleptomaniac covenant folk she doesn't trust. I read that guarding one's sanctum with spells is not uncommon. So I thought it might be easy to enchant the doorway with a spell. Suppose (and this is hypothetical, I am not actually going to go this route) that she wanted to make the doorway into a charged item =, with some Rego Corpus spells that targeted anyone who walked through it and teleported them outside (at the 2nd floor level, or maybe it's the 3rd, i don't remember). Yeah this could be lethal but it's her sanctum and she thinks it's within her rights.
Anyway, I am wondering a few things:
- Would "being walked through" be okay as a normal trigger for an enchanted doorway? Please don't tell me it needs a linked trigger with an intelligo corpus spell to detect people.
- What range is necessary to hit the trespasser with a spell? Touch? But then, will it still hit the guy if he jumps through?
I have other questions too but have to leave... I'll be back soon...
