Custom Cards / Re: Pisionic and Force Creatures for the Arena Focemaster

You can use Summoning Circle or Mind's Eye to summon the creatures where you need em.
Force Avatar is made for the heat of battle!

Force creatures could have Incorporeal. I only think would make them too strong. They have already aegis and it would be other creatures than what we know from academy. I think they do not need it either.

I think it would be good to have a Spell who can give dissipate tokens.

Convert Energy + a Thoughtspore and you can Keep your Froce Creatures in the arena. :)

Player Feedback and Suggestions / Re: spellbind

What happens when I return wand to spellbook by casting other item on its slot? Maybe even other wand.

That is a good question.

I would make two immediate suggestions:

1) the spellbound spell goes back into the book with the wand, and if the wand is recast the spell comes back out with it (and if the spell card gets used in the meantime the wand becomes inert).
2) putting it back in the book resets the wand which, if recast, can have another spell put on it.

The former is in my view the better option but is also the higher trust/higher memory option.
The latter basically increases the cost of changing the bound spell both in mana and action (since it will require another equipment spell (and its action) as well as a fresh cast of the wand). 

(of course, this question also opens up a bugbear can of worms of mine about the ability to replace equipment back into the book, but that is for another day)

In Arena format you may need to add the Incorporeal trait to the creatures to make them viable. Without some resistance to damage they would not be very useful given their limited duration due to Dissipate tokens. In Arena there could be several turns needed to move in range of an opponent so the actual time to engage the enemy with these Force constructs would be limited unless the Forcemaster is casting them while in the heat of battle.

How about making the spellbind power a one-shot thing?

That is, the wand in your book is a blank slate, waiting for a spell to be bound to it, but once one is bound, that's it. the spell cannot be swapped out. You have effectively made a Wand of Teleport, or a Wand of Dissolve, or a Wand of Lightning Bolt.

That way you would get the power to adapt to the game situation you find yourself in, but do not have a completely mutable toolbox at your command for every time the game state changes.

That would work for me, I think.

Looking at the octgn images, since I don't have the physical cards on me, it seems that two of the formations (Fire at Will and Form Ranks) do specify "in this zone" for the secondary ability, while the other two (Dig In and Press the Attack) do not. Without that specification, the understanding would be that location doesn't matter, i.e. the effect is Arena wide.

I do believe that this is an oversight though, given what formations are supposed to represent and how the other two work. I would definitely play them as only affecting the zone and expect them to get an errata to match that. Until then I guess it's a matter of RaW vs RaI.
