First off the new spell, wall of stone, I haven't had a chance to try it out yet but it actually looks like a rather useful spell, although I am curious about the repeated attempts limit. It is something a bit different from what we've already got. I think Kep said in a different thread that clan spells would offer a variety of different effects, which would be great.

I think the spell tweakage Kep has made does balance the use of clan and personal spells a bit more, it is a bit backwards from the way I was hoping it would go but that could easily result in overpowering spell clans so it's probably a safer choice though.
So basically, I'm happy with all the recent spell changes but would still like to say the suggestions implemented, even if only for a trial and find out that it is indeed greatly unbalanced and he has to scrap it and go back to this system.

Edit: I've now tried wall of stone and I was attacked several times. Each attack seemed to halve the remaining spell duration except for one of the attacks, which quartered it from 22 hours to 5 and a half. Just curious if the quatering is a design feature or a bug.

I like the new spells, my personal favourite being wall of shadows.

However, the fact that most of the alignment-based spells are for clans is a problem to me. Unless you specifically mention alignment in your clan (Around 7ish at time of writing), it's likely you will have a mix of alignment. While I'm in favour of having evil and good spells for evil and good clans, I don't think alignment spells should take up a large portion(Around 50% atow) of the clan spells. Personal spells that have alignment as a factor would be nicer, at least from my viewpoint.

Two suggestions / things I might end up looking forward to:

A speed buff line similar to the strength line. if implemented though, it would require a large amount of balancing, but should be easy to code.

The second, which I believe has not been mentioned elsewhere, is having the magnitude of your alignment effect the potency of your spells. An incredibly good character should be better at blessing, for example, than a Neutral(Good Tendancies) character. This could be in the form of a greater spell effect, or for a simpler reward, a lowered motivation cost.

My two coppers on the spell debate.

What is the duration of wall of stone (granite?)? I've seen it as high as 38 hours, which seems kinda insane.

48 hours I believe, however each time someone attacks the duration is reduced. Not sure how much it's reduced by though.

Half until it gets down to 10 mintues or lower, then it *poofs* on the next hit.

Just to double check, is it deliberate that you can see when someones workshop is infested with rats, but not with spiders?

Spiders are better at hiding.

Summon Rat Swarm is the only spell that displays a clue on the workshop view.

This is because the Rat Swarm can potentially disrupt several attacks (or more attacks than a person has motivation to waste on getting past the spell), while the other summon spells can only disrupt one attack before expiring.

I'm open to changing it sooner or later, but that was my thought process on it at the time.
