When resting I often build doors, cast rune and then rest: this can buy me an extra round if interrupted (note, Saruman rudely awakened my slumber once. Without the doors it would have been ugly).
nice idea, I like!


The spell would be truly great if there were a way to lock the doors (a Wizard Lock spell) that locks adjacent doors. or if the doors were locked to all others but the mage. I once considered carrying spikes for this purpose but being a gnome this was moot. Other variants have a spell called 'wall of fog' which i think serves the same purpose of breaking los. plus there would not be the disadvantage of foes opening adjacent doors just to summon.
Love the wall of fog option. I also agree that the doors should begin heavily jammed (the early and cheap destroy doors spell would be an obvious way for the mage to deal with this - or flag them as unjammed for the mage only, if possible)
