It's should be easy to tell the difference if someone is using a spell to harm you or if they're only playing. It's quite lame if the one character can't defend themselves and gets deathplaned before they're able to cast their first spell or pull out a weapon. *slaps forehead* Kinda lame. LOL.

I oughta give peeps a reason to attack my char by casting Bigby's Crushing Hand, deathplane them before they have a fighting chance, stick around for them to return to their corpse and wait for them to buff themselves for a real fight :D
A giant green hand comes out of nowhere and begins squeezing the life out of you quite hardly, must be unpleasant. I know that I would at least bring your character to bleeding if it was done to me, though probably not DP (Even if it would be IC). Simply throwing around hands now and then because your character can (Or because he/she is "Insane") is what's lame here, IMO.

If your characters are still breathing, that's all the reason I need to attack! :shock: :D :D :P

I know we are playing in a magical fantasy setting but still i think arcane magic is nothing that radiates or you get a vague feeling of unless the practitioner really wants to radiate or show his power (through clothing, staff or protection aura's, ...)

As far as i know arcane magic is something that is learnt, not gained like the divine powers of a priest. I'd rather believe a priest radiates power even if he doesn't want to than an arcane wizard. Unless ofcourse the wizard has been altered in a physical way and become a magical being like a lich or something.
Kind of agreed but think that would apply really to lower level mages and wizards. Sorcerer's would definetly raidiat an aura of some kind seeing as how their arcane magic is gained not really learned like a wizard or mage, and I think higher level mages would as well because of how much they have been around magic. Its not really a choice thing is it? A mage/wizard who spends years using and being around magic would surely have some kind of aura just due to there close proximity to it for so long. Kind of like a residue. So maybe that would be something only a magic user could see though. Much like a monk sizing up another monk.
