[PnP] Exhaustion

What defines "simple"? Given threshold "x", what is used to determine
the over-under?


Low Base Mana Cost?  (simplicity based entirely on spell)


Low Mana Cost? (simplicity based on combination of spell and level)

In this case, if "x" was something like 6, then a BMC 4 spell qualifies
when cast at EL 0 or 1, but becomes "difficult" at EL2 and up.  A BMC 2
spell is good up to EL2.


Low Actual Cost? (simplicity based on effort required)

This is similar to above, but takes in account cost multipliers (i.e. a
Balance wizard casting Chaos spells).  What might be simple for one
caster may well be difficult for another.

Ship and wagon, yes, if standing with freedom of movement. Horse no.
Casting magic requirements precise movements and gestures as well as
words and such. Can't do them on the back of an animal. If want to
modify that, would have to add a system allowing simple spells to ignore
the restriction because the gestures entailed do not require precise
body control and such.
