comment How can I reliably turn a formulaic Eye range spell into a Touch spell?
We haven't house ruled PeIm spells, but we do rigorously enforce the 'number of senses' affected. Just perdoing sight is dangerous when people and critters have other senses they can target with.

That's Ok, your answer prompted me to add a little more detail to my question. Thanks for your time and sorry for wasting it.

Sorry @Magician, I should have been explicit about edition. I specifically didn't select the ars-magica-5 tag as we are playing ArsM4, for which there isn't a tag. Note that in 4th ed, this would be a Level 20 spell. (CrMe10:Eye/Sun/Ind > CrMe20:Sight/Mom>Ind)

comment Do summoned creatures get any bonuses to attack from the summoner?
@waxeagle - I'm still a little confused though. Does my Giant Toad (Melee 3, Wis vs. Ref) use the same attack chance as my Staff melee attack (Combined attack is Melee 2, Wis +19 vs. AC) or the same chance as my Staff ranged attack (Fire Hawk, Ranged 10, Wis +17 vs. Reflex). So far, since the character builder doesn't specify, I've assumed the same as the Fire Hawk, since I'm effectively making a ranged attack through my summoned creature.

comment What problems can I expect when adding a Rogue Trader / Dark Heresy character to a Deathwatch game?
@acolyte - I would do, but the campaign is over now and it doesn't make the question any less valid though, or any less likely to help future Dark Heresy, Rogue Trader or DeathWatch players. Plus pretty much every question here could be answered with ask your GM, but such answers would make for a rather less useful site.

Thanks, still not a useful answer, but it no longer triggers my not useful reaction. The problem with this sort of question is that answers really need to be backed up with experience or references: "Back It Up! means that your answers must be based on either: Something that happened to you personally or Something you can back up with a reference". It's one thing knowing that the psy systems differ, it's another think understanding how & knowing whether that makes psy characters from one setting viable in another.
