Rather than fight our way out of a particularly hard encounter at the end of the last adventure, the party tried to teleport away. An enemy spellcaster attempted to counterspell it from across the room.
We weren't sure if it was supposed to work at that range, and a quick reading of rules didn't help. We're not quite sure what the range of counterspells is supposed to be. At the time the DM just made a judgement call rather than bog the game down in rule discussions, but next time it comes up we want a more solid answer.
Can touch spells (like teleport or inflict) be counterspelled from a distance?
