View Full Version : Magic mushrooms & bound spells

Are N. Goblin shamans able to use their magic mushroom die when casting bound spells?

Damned good question.

I would say "no", but that's just my opinion. The reason for this is that any model can use a bound spell, not just wizards. As such the model's spell-casting ability (or lack there-of) isn't a factor. The bound spell eats a couple of dice out of the collective power pool, and that's it.

Firstly bound items are not subject to casting bonuses (mushrooms are a randomly determined modifiying value). This means bound items would not benefit from the mushroom's roll.

Secondly I'd be interested to know if the shaman is forced to use his mushrooms even though the cast wouldn't benefit from the bonus. Could the shaman's attempts to cast the bound item still be foiled by a mushroom roll of '1'?

It's possible that could be argued, but I don't think anyone would ever actually make that argument in-game!

I would say no, as it's the item that is casting the spell, not the shaman.
