Now, I never really got to use that spell in battle before, but I'm thinking that harm cast by 7B casters can cause some serious pain. Together with the 3 Slaughtermasters your strands feebleminded that was a serious weakening of my Sabbath. Wouldn't have been enough to win, mind you, but would have caused some more damage.
Huh? Strands killed your pretender and feebleminded the blood mages? But strands is supposed to magic duel astral mages and mindburn other mages? Does it actually midburn astral mages if they have other magic paths? And does it have chance to feeblemind normal mages or is it just a quality of midburn that it cause feblemindedness to the survivors? Even so, if the wiki is correct then your pretender would have had to fail two MR checks in a row and suffered enough damage from mindburn to die. The chance of that happening to one mage among 20 is pretty decent. But it seem a pretty negligible chance vs an MR 16 pretender. Maybe it gets one check to fail twice for every path the mage got?

I have never seen anyone cast strands in MP before actually. I mainly cast it so that it would sitesearch for me, but I might have accidentally something really good!

As for harm, I intentionally mixed my undead and human forces so that spells that kills undead would hit the humans and things that only affect the living, like Harm, would hit the undead. It might have killed my mercs real good though.

Hmm... Have to say that I didn't doublecheck the Wiki, and most certainly don't know the mechanics by heart. I assumed the Strands killed him, as the description mentions a magical duel, so I thought the loser died as per the spell Magic Duel. Wiki does indeed say otherwise.

What I can say for sure is that I got the message that "1 target died and 5 were affected", and my pretender was gone afterwards. (I was confused for a while myself, wondering where he'd gone, until I found that message again.)

As for the feebleminds, they're probably caused by the mind burn damage as normal battle afflictions. After the above message where there were 5 affected targets for example, I went through my mages and 2 were feebleminded, while no one else was affected. (that turn.)

I'm considering selling The Chalice. PM me with offers if you are interested. Looking for gems, not cash.

Here's a funny question. If the Lizards agreed would that constitute a trade per the diplomacy rules?

The Jotun need no prissy cups, we have our own and they are filled with mead.

*Except after reading the first post there is no trades are binding rule apparently in this one.

Try it and we'll drink your blood from our Chalice with the side benefit that we'll automatically be healed of whatever diseases your mangy troops are carrying!

Why, what's happened?

Sharing is a virtue.
