So was hoping more comments on Familiar/Binding but oh well.

So let's have a different thread.

I seem to recall Richard saying that in his mind there was rules to 
casting for Wizs.
They need 1) Verbal commands and 2) hand gestures.

I don't see it in the rules.  But I think it was 80% chance either 
here or in email.

Does anyone recall this?

It is how I've run things.
So need words and at least one hand.  This made it fun for simply 
binding a wizards hands.
To me this is the classic wizard who throws that fireball not just 
stands there with arms to side nad
a fireball shows form eyes.

For Shamans need a Focus for a trance.
For Innate Magics thought no voice no gestures.  ie creatures with 
powers can't gesture or speak.

I suppose one could argue Priests could have their religious symbols?
Witches their familiar.

Do you guys recall this?
or am I just insane?

Scratch that I am insane but that's aside the point.

Too bad List Archives don't have a  search  functoin. :)
When I ran my BBS I put the month's worth of postsin a file.
Made searching fast.
But not done that in a  decade.
