Mass Heal doesn't damage Undead

Hey, just thought I'd mention, the Mass Heal spell does not damage undead the same way heal does. Hope it can be fixed for the next version, I want to have an AOE undead killer!

Oh, and incidentally, the 'pinned' status stops me from casting stilled spells as well, I'm not sure if that's a bug or intentional.

Great game btw=)

Hello valore, and welcome to the forum. Regarding the effects you mentioned:

1- Mass Heal is not intended to have an effect on enemy undead in KotC. Why did I do it like this? Because I wanted Mass Heal as a circle spell (you target a circle) rather than a multi-selection spell (you target a number of characters one by one). As a circle spell, if I allow the spell to affect enemies, then it's going to be a pain to target it, because it's going to heal non-undead enemies in range. Surely, you don't want it to heal enemies, only your characters. So I set it to only affect your own characters (and allies).

2- 'Pinned' is intended to stop you from casting any spell. Even if it's a still spell it usually has a verbal component which you won't be able to utter. For simplicity even spells without any component are disallowed.
