View Full Version : Noob question: spells and no LOS

20-12-2008, 22:56
I suspect this is from playing too many different mini-games, but I simply cannot recall, nor find a rules reference.

If a spell is not a magic missile nor specifically mention requiring LOS, can it be cast without LOS?

If this is <gasp!> actually written in a rulebook, a page number will quell much confusion.

Usually, if LOS is required, it will be stated in the spell description. If it is not mentioned, the description will state the range, and if it is possible to cast into combat.

For example - it may say any unit within 18". Now unless it further specifies "and in LOS" it does not.

Only magic missiles specifically require lign of sight and would not have that restriction listed.

The only times it needs LOS is either when it states that LOS is required, or it is a magic missile without claiming any exeptions.

It's hard to page reference the non-existence of a rule, but I do think if such a stricture existed it would be on page 107, left column, right by the paragraph specifying that you cannot normally cast into HtH.
