I prefer Banishment, both for that reason and because it sounds more like a spell for a fantasy setting.

So I am kinda surprised to see it back here on the to-do list.
Sorry, I should have put the disclaimer up front: posting that list doesn't mean that whatever anybody produces will automatically be included - at the very least it has to get a nod from takkaria as a good enough solution/implementation. My assumption was that anybody inspired to work on one of these things would post here linking to their work, and discussion would ensue automatically.

If that doesn't happen, I'll make sure I start a thread myself before committing any of these.

@fph: the fact that the ticket was not closed indicates that there is still at least a chance that takkaria would welcome an implementation of this idea ...

Might be worth adding the disclaimer to the original message, especially if it's going to be at the top of a sticky thread?

Might also be worth giving the list a quick rough sort in ascending order of controversiality

Hi, Reading this yesterday I thought doing a pdf version of the help would be a fun project. However doing a file for the whole thing makes it to big to attach to this post. If anyone is interested in having a look let me know how I could send it to you.

EDIT: Found a file hosting place - here's the link:
http://www.filedropper.com/angbmanual
File size is currently about 350-400KB. I've started making a index but it's not complete. Let me know what you think.

Well the best thing to do would be to put it up on the web somewhere so that people can comment on it. I can help with hosting it if you have any difficulty - PM me.

I think Banishment is a perfectly good name for what the spell does but the difference between Banishment and Mass Banishment isn't obvious from the names. Something like Selective Banishment and Area Banishment.

Zone Banishment vs. Man-to-Man Banishment? :P

Interesting - thank you for your work. Grateful if you could start a new thread for discussion. In fact, I'd be grateful if anyone contributing to any of these issues could start a new thread instead of replying to this one - otherwise it will turn into a monster.

I'll save my comments for the new thread.

Yeah, that's a great idea, would have done that if you hadn't explicitly said to post in this thread in the OP ;-)
