use Spawnpoint mana for casting any spells
« on: April 11, 2018, 07:40:44 AM »
Hello,

Newbie question :
Imagine that the Beastmaster have 0 mana available during the end quick cast phase. But he has a Lair that has on it  , let''s suppose,  10  mana.
Can he use that Lair mana to cast a incantation or enchantment during the end quickcast phase ? or is that mana only restricted to the lair to be used to summon creatures ?

This question can be generalized also to all type of conjurations that have mana channeling. Can this mana be used by the mage to cast any spells ? or is it only restricted to the conjuration to cast its own authorized spells?

Thanks.

spawnpoints, and familiars cast their own spells with their mana.
the mage can help the spawnpoint or the familiar (giving it mana) but not in the other direction.

and spawnpoints only deploy their selected spell during the deployment step. while familiars are generally (not all) creatures that have their own action marker and may choose (or not) to cast their prepared spell during the regular action phases. No spawnpoint/familiar can cast any spell during the first or last quick cast phase.

as a follow up. no mana on the spawnpoint or familiar can be used for any other purpose. in fact felella and naiya can cast enchantments. ithey cannot pay from their mana pool the reveal cost for that enchantment or any enchantment. zuberi can correct me here, but i believe only you meaning the mage can reveal the enchantment.
