Having just gained access to the Miniatures Handbook, I have only recently encountered this (and it's Benign friend) and fallen in love with it (along with Slide and Greater Slide...they rock!). Anyways, I was thinking about how to use these tasty spells of tastyness and it occured to me that you could cast it on someone who was grappling...

...now, what happens in this occurence? Let's take some examples:

There are two opposing sides; A and B, each consisting of 2 members; A1 and A2 and B1 and B2. Assume that all are Medium creatures and that all Saves are failed.

Situation 1

- A1 is Grappling B1

- A2 and B2 are otherwise unengaged

- A2 (a Wizard) Casts Baleful Transposition on A1 and B2 (thereby switching their positions)

- B1 and B2 are now in the same space...do they count as being in a Grapple? Or do they immediately move to occupy 2 spaces and thus do not count as Grappling?

Situation 2

- A1 is Grappling B1

- A2 and B2 are otherwise unengaged

- A2 casts Benign Transposition on himself and A1

- Are A2 and B1 now Grappling?

Situation 3

- A1 and B1 Grappling (A2 and B2 unengaged)

- A2 casts Baleful Transposition on B2 and B1

- Is A1 now Grappling B2?

Aside from the Grapple situation, how about the following?

Situation 4

- A2 Readies an Action to cast Baleful Transposition if he's Charged

- B2 Charges A2, triggering the Readied Action.

- A2 targets himself and B2 with BT

- A2/B2 switch places

- What happens to B2's Charge and/or the rest of his turn? If he were to continue in a straight line (as per legal Charge rules), he'd be moving away from the original target of his charge (A2).

Situation 5

- B1 is mounted on a Warhorse

- A2 Readies and action to cast BT if Charged (as per Situation 4)

- B1 Charges A2

- A2 targets himself and B1's Horse

- A2 and Horse switch places

- ???

Situation 6

- As (5), except A2 targets B1 and B1's Horse... :smalltongue:
