Default Re: [Spells] Why is Command a blocking spell, and how does it work?

It would have been better if the spell description in Spells actually mentioned that. Since it doesn't, it's actually the other way around. Because it's a Blocking spell, it's interpreted that you are allowed to use it the foil attacks.

That Krommquote is very helpful, and answers all my questions. Thank you.

I think I will rule that Command can be used to foil a melee attack with a right command, but will not foil a ranged attack. Commanding the archer to wait, drop, etc., should not affect the arrow that has been already been successfully released (a successful attack roll).
Running DFRPG now. Run I Smell a Rat, You All Meet at a Inn, The Golden Geniza of Ezkali, and Hydra Island so far.
