DESCRIPTION

A Bound Umbral Spellportal is a single endless spell that consists of 2 models (if it is dispelled, remove both models).

MAGIC

Summon Bound Spellportal: Eldritch sigils can be inscribed into the mist to summon a pair of arcane mirrors, the surfaces of which undulate with shadowy aetheric energy.
Summon Bound Spellportal has a casting value of 5. Only SERAPHON WIZARDS can attempt to cast this spell. If successfully cast, set up the first Bound Umbral Spellportal model wholly within 12" of the caster, and then set up the second Bound Umbral Spellportal model wholly within 18" of the first.

ABILITIES

Arcane Passage: When looking upon an Umbral Spellportal, those versed in magic see a shadowy reflection of what lies on the other side of its twinned construct; while physical matter cannot travel through the portal, aetheric energy knows no such restriction.
If a WIZARD successfully casts a spell while they are within 1" of a Bound Umbral Spellportal model, the range and visibility of the spell can be measured from the other Bound Umbral Spellportal model from the same endless spell. After the range and visibility for a spell has been measured from a Bound Umbral Spellportal, you cannot use the Arcane Passage ability again for that Bound Umbral Spellportal in that phase. If a predatory endless spell finishes a move within 6" of a Bound Umbral Spellportal model, remove it from the battlefield and set it up again anywhere within 6" of the other Bound Umbral Spellportal model from the same endless spell. After an endless spell finishes a move within 6" of a Bound Umbral Spellportal and is set up again, it cannot move again in that phase, and you cannot use the Arcane Passage ability again for that Bound Umbral Spellportal in that phase.

KEYWORDS
ENDLESS SPELL, BOUND, UMBRAL SPELLPORTAL
Unbinding and Dispelling
A WIZARD can attempt to unbind an endless spell when it is initially cast as normal. In addition, a WIZARD can attempt to dispel one endless spell at the start of each of their hero phases. If a wizard attempts to dispel an endless spell, they can attempt to cast one less spell than normal that phase.

In order to dispel an endless spell, first pick an endless spell model within 30" of the wizard and visible to them, and then roll 2D6. If the roll is greater than the casting value of the spell, the endless spell is dispelled. An endless spell model cannot be subjected to more than one dispel attempt per hero phase.

When an endless spell is dispelled its model is removed from play; the model can then be used again if the same endless spell is successfully cast later in the battle.
Casting and Unbinding Spells
A WIZARD can attempt to cast spells in its own hero phase. You cannot attempt to cast the same spell more than once in the same turn (even with a different wizard).

In order to cast a spell, first say which spell the wizard is going to attempt to use (it must be one they know). To cast the spell, roll 2D6. If the total is equal to or greater than the casting value of the spell, the spell is successfully cast.

If a spell is cast, the opposing player can choose one of their WIZARDS that is within 30" of the caster to attempt to unbind the spell before its effects are applied. To unbind a spell, roll 2D6. If the roll beats the roll used to cast the spell, then the spell is not successfully cast. Only one attempt can be made to unbind a spell.
