Can someone help me clarify how to determine the size of the mirror created with the base cost of casting? Thanks in advance. __________________ Two things that I learned from Dungeons & Dragons is that I LOVE GURPS and it isn't really a compliment when a gnome tells you your hair smells nice.

1) Wrong forum?
2) DFRPG has the cost of mirror spelled out a bit more
3) Most GURPS spells (if not stated otherwise) assume SM 0, and should be scaled per the rules for larger targets.

Unless setting cities on fire is a desirable feature of your setting, you probably should assume that the mirror spell creates a flat mirror. __________________ My GURPS site and Blog.
