let's assume the "Lost Prince" scenario is being played and a wizard gets into btb contact with the prince.

1) Would you allow this wizard to fly off TOGETHER WITH THE PRINCE using spells like "Flight of Zimmeran" or "Wings of Darkness"?

2) If not, how would you handle it otherwise?

Wow. In 10 yrs I've never heard that one. No one has even considered that. I'd laugh, get upset or just say no depending on the personalities involved.

If the wizard wants to fly then it abandons the prince. The spell does not say it moves the wizard and any model in base to base with the wizard. We allow wizards to fly around picking up wyrdstone, but people and treasure chests ground them.

i guess i should add to my initial posting that the relevant player rather formulated it in a negated rhetorical question: "I guess I can't...."

And i spontaneously answered no because it never occurred to me either.

But I wanted to check other opinions to make sure I was not simply biased in that moment as we weren't allied Smile

Aye, that would be a tad cheesy. I'd say a big no on that one.

I am happy to have a gaming group that are also roleplayers - thus, nothing ever comes up like this.

We considered the question way back when and unanimously agreed that the wizard couldn't carry anyone else with him when he flew. Otherwise, he would generally carry another warband member around with him while flying.

LOL. That is such an obvious point. Of course he would, yet I hadn't thought of that before. Best counter argument I can think of.

or he might engage an enemy model in btb contact and fly off with him and drop him in the middle of the rest of the mage's warband, all most eagerly waiting to give him some serious beating Very Happy

That does sound fun to me. Smile

Depending one whose side you are that is... What a Face
