I'm running a D&D 3.5 campaign with a BBEG who has telekinesis. During one particular encounter he tried to bull rush the fighter into a pit. The fighter's player then pointed out that since he was more than 5 feet away from the pit he was safe as the caster could not follow the target of the bull rush, preventing him from being pushed more than 5 feet.
An argument ensued and the session broke down. Normally he's not this bad, but he will not believe the spell can push more than 5 feet without some written case in the rules, because the bull rush rules in the PHB state the initiator of the bull rush must follow to push more than 5 feet.
So the question is: Does telekinesis only push 5 feet or is there an errata or mention of it pushing more than 5 feet somewhere?
