Roguelike idea from "Lost Magic" DS game - Mr. @ teaches typing!

Say, anyone ever played "Lost Magic", the Nintendo DS RTS/RPG game where you cast spells by drawing combinations of runes on the screen, and the quicker and more accurately you draw them, the more powerful the spell? Now this is probably a really stupid idea that no one would play, but what if there were a roguelike where in order to cast spells you had to type magic words, and the better your typing skills the more powerful the spell? Just thought I'd throw it out there in case there was any interest in anyone developing something like that

Hmm, how about we go one step further with Dragon Naturally Angband?

I loved Typing of the Dead though, and if -any- game was made with a word/phrase typing interface I'd play it

If such a game was developed, my spells would totally OWN.

Yeah, judging by your username, I can tell... anyone who can type "quaxocal" quickly is a darn good typist in my book!
