|TRIGGER ALL TRIGGERS FORMULA|
|Time: Instantaneous||Other Heka Costs:|
|Area: 1 foot radius per STEEP||R&D: Nil|
|Distance: 1 foot per STEEP||Other: Nil|
|E/F/M: This Formula sends forth its dweomer into a radius equal to the Distance possible for the practitioner, thus triggering the held Effects of all Trigger Effect Castings lain within that area.|
Now, you can argue that it should be Grade III, or such a Casting is foolishness, but I would point out that, accepting (for the moment) your thoughts, we can consider the Trigger Effect (application two) to be knocking on one door, and this is simply knocking on a dozen or so doors, certainly only a matter of degree :-) The *other* option is to simply add an 'Other' cost: 1 Heka per Casting to be Triggered (bearing in mind that the Triggering of a Casting should be a minor thing). It's still pretty unlikely to get more than a dozen Triggers in an area, especially with the liberal application of a Casting along these lines.
I still think that it should be built into the original spell -- after all, it *is* such a simple and basic effect, and such a minor magick that dozens or more counters would already have been devised (not to mention counters of the counters), and I will continue to use my original ruling -- after all, it's a potent weapon for the HP's, too.....
