With the new "spell types" in the new rulebook and the casting restrictions on the same page, I have a question about how these apply to older army books.
It says below all the general casting restrictions that spells in older army books that do not have a spell type, will have all casting restrictions listed in the spell.
Does this mean that these spells DO NOT follow the general casting restrictions in the BRB?
Flames of the Phoenix from High Magic. Clearly would be a Direct Damage spell, which would normally need to be in the forward arc of the wizard. Can this spell be cast WITHOUT being in the caster's forward arc?
Shield of Saphery from High Magic. This spell grants a ward save and would clearly be an augment spell, which would normally not require the target to be in the wizard's forward arc. Must the target of this spell be in the caster's forward arc?
Hope I made myself clear, been a long time without writing English, I'm afraid,

I would say that you are free to cast the spell anywhere in range. But flames couldn't be cast into close combat.
Of course that is just a personal view point. Hard to say with any hard and fast rule. One of those things you would have to talk out with your opponent or roll off for.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Surely you'd use them the same way you would in 7th as the particular restrictions are all written in the spell descriptions.
