I have a question regarding familiars and area spells. More specifically, Sleep.
I have a player that wanted to cast this spell around a given target, that he could only see from his familiar's eyes (not from himself). We allowed the effect at the time to maintain the session, but now looking at the rules...
We are looking at page 204 of the book and to me it seems this is not possible. Does the effect originates from his body, or from the familiar when he is using its eyes?
However, the point the player raises (that that same paragraph can be interpreted as being able to see the target, which he can due to the familiar; plus the fact that you can case a touch spell from 100ft... makes me think that you should in fact be able to cast such a spell from the familiar.
In any case, this question is just to find out... per the raw, if it is possible or not. If yes, all good. If not, then we learn and make a feat for him to be able to do it.
Feel free to advise if you would advise against allowing this with a custom feat. I cannot see any issues with it.
