I believe the book says failed spells are a speed 2 kerfluffle.

By fail I meant "fail." Failing in this instance is not due to CTN (unless spell failure is mentioned elsewhere, it's because the spell is already up. So how does that come into effect. Spells can fail due to there no longer being a legal target too, which isn't covered in the books.

That'd be a GM's call, unless Henry or Pedro weigh in and clarify. Personally, I'd rule it as a speed 2 failure. KISS.

greetings,

If you recast emphatic link upon a target already under the effect of an emphatic link you simply re-fresh the the spells duration (which is 24 hours)

in all cases, the fresh casting overrides the previous casting, and yes you can switch effects in the case with different effects (Benediction)

note the target must stay within range for the entire duration, if the target leaves your maximum range the spell ends.

I'm assuming this means you can change targets with a recasting of Empathic Link.

Pedro,

Two questions related to this.

1. What happens if you try and cast the spell when you already have a target?
2. If your target gets the spell unraveled, are you automatically aware that the connection no longer exists? I would think so, but it's helpful to know.

Kind regards,

Paul

Following up on this one elsewhere with Pedro.

as a side note, I have been greatly entertained by the misspellings on the rules forums of late, I think an Emphatic link would be along the lines of emotional control

the existing spell is replaced with the new one, so if you cast on a new target the spell ends on the old target

Yes, you would be aware of the connection ending... you would "feel" it
