1 formulaic spell per round as basic/routine correct?
Fast Casting - What in the world?! basic Fast casting is cast in response to something... right?
a) Example A - magus 1 is casting. Magus 2 tries to fast cast and succeeds. Magus 1 wants to react to that fast cast and fast cast as well! aaaaaaaaaaah! How does this work?
What if I just want to fast cast? So what I'm saying is I want to fast cast but not in response to anything.. I just want to utter off 4 spells, even though I have the highest initiative? I mean.. what is the my Ease/difficulty rating? It's obviously not the next lowest guy's initiative.
a) Magus 1 wants to cast like 4 spells in a round just because he's awesome like that. How?
Do I make concentration rolls PER fast cast? So lets say I've taken damage this round already, but now I'm about to try to fast cast like 3 spells! So.. concentration roll per spell?
Counterspelling - how where what?! Under Fast cast, there is a very poorly described "defence" mechanism where it states as long as your fast cast total is >= half of the spell level, you successfully deflect the spell. Why is this not expanded? Does it matter what form/technique I'm fast casting? As in.. I'm going to stop a CrIg "Ball of yodeadsonneh!" with some MuAn totally unrelated "these rats are now hairless!" spontaneous fast cast?
Counterspelling part 2 - Under Perdo Vis - can someone explain this a bit better to me.
a) So you can have a specific Form dispel as follows: If your casting total + 10 + stress die is equal to or greater than half the targetted spell, you successfully dispel it. Range: Voice.
b) I can have a GENERAL (works vs all Forms) dispel as follows: If your casting total + stress die is equal to or greater than half the targetted spell, you successfully dispel it. Range: Voice.
c) Neither of the above spells can actually be done as an on-the-fly-counterspell/defence unless you Fast Cast it as a spontaneous affect OR you've mastered it with the fast cast specialization, correct?
