Full spell copied below -
First question - If this initial casting targets something and you exceed DN 10 but get less than the Dodge of the Target does the spell fail? I.e. suffer backlash and no ongoing duration? If so, is this intended?
Related, assuming that both answers to the above are yes, could you multi-action to 1) cast the spell and then 2) do a n apportation test to attack someone? That way assuming you hit the (now) DN 12 to cast it you would still have a whirlwind even if the attack missed, is that right?
Question the second - in the good and outstanding results, it appears that targets need only be hit in order to be moved. Is that intended or should this require suffering shock as well?
1. Yes, the spell fails if you are specifically targeting a foe, and don't hit it's dodge. The DN 10 is for creating a whirlwind without directing it at a target. Yes, I know this can be a bit weird, but that's magic.
1b. No, because you can't use the same skill on a Multi-Action.
2. They move even if they don't take Shock.
