Has any one played with the idea that light is made up of many colours thus can now chose to cast plasma bolt as any standard handbook colour that is within the visible spectrum e.g red, blue, green? withou having to second colour or using specialist slots

if so what sort of cost??

interesting concept but a light colour is not the same as the "element", so red represents fire but not everything red burns. Except those chillis, especially those small ones.

Would you need to "fire" your plasma bolt through a prism to split it into it colours?

All of the various colours remain white mana, however. It's magic not physics...

(I've got 'change the colour of a damaging spell' as Palewise, but it also changes the damage type, so it doesn't do green mana light damage or whatever because that's stoopid)
Hampton

Yeah i thougth of that as well. New spell Prism. creates a floating prism in the middle of the room any light based damaged cast through it either splits and bolts everyone in the room. or bolts people round corners Hehehehe.

I've got a Spell called Prismatic Dart as a Sorcery Wizard. The justification is that loads of summonations have odd magical last hits and as such this deals with them. It is 3 mana but can be any combination of colour and descriptor provided I'm not prohibited from casting that particular colour (i.e. can't do Jade if I'm not goodly, can't do opposite colour if I have a second colour).
