Default Re: Magic - could you buff an enemy wizard with a non-resistable spell to track them?

It seems like a pretty cheesy trick to me, especially for such weak spells.

The reason why many spells aren't given Resistance is because they're mostly used as buffs or otherwise benefit the subject.

If someone doesn't want a spell cast on them, even if its effects would benefit them, then they should be allowed a roll to resist (e.g., someone who wishes to resist a Bless spell to avoid accusations of cheating, or any spell which could be used to track or otherwise identify them).

I'd say resisted with HT for spells with physical effects on the subject's body, resisted by IQ for spells with purely mental effects, or Will for spells which alter the subject's gear or which create other magical effects.
