I like that. That spell is pretty useless anyway, so it needs rework and changing name is not a bad thing when you change what it does as well.

I like Expulsion, or Expel, depending on the part of speech one prefers. It's quite accurate. Or if we want to be colloquial, we can go with the baseball umpire's call...You're Out of Here! is the spell, and leave the scroll as the Scroll of Expulsion.

Other colluquials...if baseball references are perhaps too American...

Bring Me A Shrubbery!
Red Card (soccer ejection...might be best for single target or beam version, if we want one of those)
GO AWAY! (in all caps, with punctuation )

Another variation:
Tsunami (for LOS only Mass Banish)

Another term might just be Bane, for Banish, and use Expel for Mass Banish.

One thing though banishment is very useful against pesky fleas and critters of that sort, mass teleport would be good if it removed them from the level. Mages and priest really don't need the scrolls, but it would be valuable to warriors though.

I have always seen Mass Banishment as Mass Level Teleport Other.
So the banished monsters just end up on another dungeon level.
After all, all other explanations imply you getting XP for the banished monsters.

Maybe an intermediate option would be level teleport other. ( Teleports a monster / ray to another level).
Or Mass teleport other.

In that case, may I suggest the name "Bug Off!" ?

Excommunicate?

Just an idea... :P

(Not really appropriate alas, since it's mages that get Banishment, not priests.)

Just found this thread. I like this suggestion pretty well. Maybe Annihilation instead of Annihilate?
