Okay, Path to Glory question: do you use all the normal rules except command traits/artifacts from your book? Or do you get access to those too? I noticed my Hedonite book mentioned still getting depravity points, but what else do/don’t I have access to?

Endless Spells: Endless Spells DO count as “Spells”, right? They’re just a specific type of spell. I’m asking in regards to the Balewind Vortex’s range extender.

Because a Contorted Epitome that plops on top of a Vortex and subsequently casts the Mesmerizing Mirror can drop it right in the enemies battleline, move it close to heroes if they aren’t spread out (and bunched heroes are a thing from locus buffs) and potentially ruin peoples’ days. Also, the reading of the mirror says that when it’s cast AND any time it moves you roll for heroes within 6”. So the turn it casts, if they’re close enough, you potentially hit them twice: “after this model is set up, and after it has moved, roll 6 dice...” So that mirror after being slingshotted by a Vortex...

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

We dont let in summoning. After that we unlock spells and abilities with glory points.

GW points don't bring balance. They exist purely for structure. You can get more balance from no points than you do from GW points. You however can get no structure in your game without points.

Endless spells do not count as regular spells. Note how rules say "...spell or endless spell..."

You also cannot use endless spells in PtG unless they have been added to your warband (see the Malign Sorcery supplement).

I missed that completely, thanks for the update!

Ninth, could you point me to the page that states that? Main rulebook or malign portents, I’m hoping.

The malign sorcery book just states that “endless spells are spells with models that are known to all wizards in your army if you paid points for them” (paraphrased). It flat out calls endless spells to be “spells”. Yes, I know some things specify spell or endless spell for the purposes of dispelling and such, because dispelling an endless spell works differently since it’s physically in play.

Edit-never mind, the designer’s commentary addresses that you cannot do it. Ah well, it was worth a shot.

I can't recall it being specifically stated, but the Malign Sorcery faq (designer's commentary) has several questions which make it pretty clear. The second one calls out that modifiers to the distances of spells do not affect endless spells.
