It depends where the wizard is standing if your GM determines Creation spell range from the megahex the wizard is in as opposed to the megahex centered on the wizard. It could be as little as -4 DX to be outside C spell range.

How does the spell manifest in your games to add flavor and help paint a more vivid picture of the action? I could imagine an elementalist having Slippery Floor coat the floor with "black ice," or a wizard manipulating the fabric of reality as described here.

Do you find your players are immersed enough in the story to not let the whereabouts of the affected area influence their movement?

From the spell description this spell is only revealed when the area of effect is entered.

Why does knowing a hero who is a climber help? Telekinesis gives you the capability to "do if his own body were there." ITL pg 27.

If the wizard knows climbing he can climb without TK. If he does not know climbing then TK is not going to help him up the cliff.

Please correct me if I misunderstood.

As seems to be his wont, Henry has managed to take a conversation about one topic and, for reasons known only to himself, twisted it to one about something else.

Perhaps Henry meant Teleportation, not Telekinesis? One could avoid a climb altogether by Teleporting "up".

That just inspired me to envision a Magic Escalator of sorts. Imagine if the bottom stair in a long flight of stairs was enchanted with a permanent Teleportation spell that took you to the top stair? Great feature for the towers of lazy wizards.

Of course the evil flip-side of that could be the bottom stair that Teleports unknowing guest directly to a cell in the dungeon -- or something worse. The residents of course would know to skip over that first stair, but should be required to roll 2 or 3 vs IQ not to forget every time they use the staircase.

Putting Slippery Floor on a staircase would be a nasty trick. If one was carrying something before they fell down the stairs, it would seem reasonable that they might drop it as they tumbled down.
