Whilst very early on the forces of Good are getting positively "pummelled" here (this game does definitely require the correct strategy "one" feels) and the answer to my question might only further pile on the woe, Ive found the deteriorating situation has forced me to attempt to interpret between two notions, that of......
A) Whilst Malig already has a Geas active on board (cast two moves back and now within striking distance of the King and safely out of range of Verokin and Hero) he in effect unable to cast another spell of a different type until that Geas has been dispelled (by himself or others).
Or
B) As I suspect, that the "only one spell per move" rule refers purely to the spell's initial casting and not in fact to its duration.

A or B Ladies and Gents please?

Oh, and whilst we are at it, the term "Geas" itself.....how on earth does "one" pronounce this?

While I cannot help you with your rules question, I can with the pronunciation of the Scottish word Geas:

So, a fine balance of "gesh" and "gaesh"? Thats really good, thank you Chris. Was going to ask you if it was Gaelic but it could be one of a number of languages it seems from the Northern half of these here Isles.

Glad I could help. From what I've found in the Oxford Dictionary, the word comes from Irish folklore and geas is the Scottish spelling. So Gaelic does seem to be the root language.

And now, thanks to your question and this discussion, I find I need to break out the game and get it to the table once again.

You mean Geas = Geis = Geese? Lol.

What definition do you have there Chris?

Luckily for us (and Lewis Pulsipher), we have wikipedia....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geis

Tis then, a supernatural gift that comes with its own form of curse

Let us know how your game goes.
