When a wizard is brought below zero hit points from lethal damage, does he lose the spells that he has prepared?
I have always played this way. The 3.5e PHB states under Injury and Death that:
A spellcaster retains the spellcasting capability she had before dropping below 0 hit points.
To me this seems to pertain to spells that the wizard cast before he fell unconscious. Those spells would continue for the rest of their duration at least until the wizard was dead. Please someone clear this up for me.
