    High magic

    Now I have a High Magic question. Say you have the Ring of Corin and know Vaul's Unmaking. If you are lucky enough to get both off can you cast them on the same unit/character in the same game and/or in the same turn even? :p

    Yes, there is no limit to what it can be cast on or when (barring magic phase of course). So that is totally legal, but works only if your opponent has multiple magic items in a unit/on a character.

    Another question on High Magic:

    Fortune is Fickle vs. the Book of Hoeth (ie. FiF cast on a Book-Mage)

    What happens when he rolls, say, a double 3?

    Would he get the Irresistible Force from the Book, and then suffer a Miscast due to the spell?

    Yep. IIRC things like this has been cleared up somewhere, in a situation where you will miscast on a double and you get IF the spell in cast with IF as per usual but the caster then suffers for a miscast -as per usual.

    I think you're wrong here Ulrik. The Book of Hoeth states "...on any casting roll that includes any double, except a miscast", clearly stating that if the spell is miscast it is not cast with IF. (My emphasis.)

    Therefore, since Fortune is Fickle causes a Miscast on any double, it will effectively nullify the Book.

    Does Vail's Unmaking work on Magic Banners. It doesn't say in the High Elf army book. :huh:
