Hello there!

As thread title says - is it possible to cast spell on space without zombies, just to generate noise there? (provided its in LOS of course)

Rulebook does not have official answer, but it states that attacks "target spaces instead of figures" which implies I could technically cast spell on empty space without enemies to put sound marker there.

Is that correct?

Noise generates at point of origin

The noise marker is placed on the space of the spell caster.

To answer the original question, it seems that it would be OK to target a Zone without Zombies, though. The only reason I can think of is that you want to try to intentionally shoot a Survivor, though that seems unlikely to be of use either. Using it to generate noise in your Zone is redundant due to the Make Noise action.

As far as I can recall, there is no way to "throw" noise to another space. It must occur in the space you're in.

From the subject line alone, all I could imagine was that he wanted to cast magic missile at the darkness.

Of course!




Anyway my rulebook (polish) does not state clear enough that noise is generated on origin square and generating noise far away with spell looked like nice tactics. Perhaps I am not too experienced with game still, but I never really abused noise in any precticable way.
