Working on a character with Faerie Magic, so I figure may as well have at least one spell that uses an unusual spell parameter.
So, I begin looking for examples of spells with Road as a target.
I see on the Spells Wiki:
InIm 4 Faerie
R Road, D Diameter, T individual
The caster can see as if they were standing at any point along the selected road. By succesivley moving his or her point of view to the furthest loation on the road that he or she can presently see, a caster can scan a road for many miles in a matter of seconds. The caster can not choose to view from a location on a road that he has not seen (either by passing by the spot or use of this or a similar spell).
(Base 1 ,+ 2 range, +1 duration)
Notes: This spell moves a sense that the caster already possesses rather than creates a new magical sense. As such the vision target is not appropriate for it.
Faerie Intuition of the Path
InIm 25 Faerie
R: Road, D: Diameter, T: Vision
Whilst the Maga concentrates she can see and hear anything upon the road she stands upon.
“I sensed your step, stranger. By what venture have you sought me out?”
By use of this spell, Valonia is able to enact many other enchantments.
(B: 2, R: Road +2, D: Diameter +1, T: Vision +4)

Notes: This is just one interpretation of the rules. I figured that to be able to scan the road, which is quite a powerful ability, the spell should be reasonably medium level; but obviously I wanted to avoid the 'Boundary' target as I didn't think that this ability merited a ritual. This is a compromise really. The vision target lifts the level of the spell so that it is not a powerful affect at trivial level, and justifies the ability to scan a road without resorting to ritual 'overkill'. I can imagine all sorts of lower level versions of this spell though, perhaps allowing a person to see part of a road, or simply the nearest person or group along it, etc.
So, these spells seem very similar, but the difference in level is pretty extreme. I am a bit puzzled as to which approach is correct, or if there are aspects I am missing something in how to mentally envision these spells.
My gut feeling is Tyrell's spell is too low, but perhaps I am being to reactionary - the math seems to work, but does the conceptual machinery of the spell work? Admittedly, troupes have the final call, but I thought I'd ask it fols might be able to clue me in on anything I'm missing.
That said, any other Target: Road spells are of interest to me.
Edit: Incorrect title. Road was not intended, mea culpa.
