I was looking back at the thread on Can magi sense vis? where
I was having difficulty understanding why the 'range' of 'Vision' should add so many levels of magnitude to the spell, so I looked back at PP113-4 where Magical Senses are defined...
On rereading and rereading that I can't make myself believe that Dalak is using the rule correctly. The RAW state:
i.e. when a mage casts the spell on himself the range is "Personal".
The RAW also state:
As I read that, all senses are equally easy to enhance, but - as they are different senses - the effect is different in each case. None is more difficult than any other.
What I don't see in the RAW is a clear definition of what benefit Magical Senses might bring. When I first read that section I thought I was seeing the ArM analogue of the D&D 'Clairvoyance' and 'Clairaudience' spells -- so enhanced sight would just allow the target to see further and in more detail. The RAW do say, though:
which does seem to be saying that the benefit is like unto that of an Intellego spell.
If that's the case, a mage enhance any of his senses to give an InVi 1 effect all day, with base cost 1, +2 for "Sun" duration. Making level 3.
Tell me why I'm wrong.
