Rod of Memory proccing on a black shield is a very good balance. With only ~16% chance to recast the same spell, even the chances of casting Genie over and over are astronomically small. :) Well done.

Yeah, the wand is really nicely balanced and also makes the wizard think is he ready to risk a possibility to lose his attack on that turn. Well done!

So the possessor of the hammer cannot be healed by the wizard? Or given any other boon? Sounds like a curse.

Should probably be reworded to "The possessor of Sognirstane can't be harmed by elemental magic spells".

I dunno. The original quest says that elemental magic has no effect on the bearer. I'd take that to mean any elemental magic.

Since its the heroes who use elemental magic, it makes sense that it would be designed to not allow the healing spells to work. After all, how often do you fire of wrath your own party?

Chaos spells by the very name dont seem to be elemental magic, but chaos magic. I'd say that hero could be targeted by a chaos magic user, otherwise, why the distinction "elemental", you could just say "magic" and call it a day.

For the day, it was a weapon with a unique upside, the designer probably thought it needed a downside to balance.

I'd say all WoM spells and the most of the NA Chaos spells affect the possessor of Sognirstane. Since the Halls of Durrag-Dol was created independently of the NA system, I wouldn't include Ball of Flame and Sleep in that group.

Should I one day choose to play this Quest, I think I'll go with Goblin-King's suggestion for the hammer to only prevent harmful elemental spells. I like it as an NA player because monsters with multiple Body Points already balance two attack dice. Also, a crossbow may be purchased by more than one NA Hero, so a returning hammer that prevents beneficial magic will soon be discarded.

I think the Rod of Memory is too much powerful: imagine if the wizard will associate a healing spell or Rock Skin to the Rod; at the beginning of the quest, in an empty room, he can try to cast and re-cast Rock Skin over and over again until all the Heroes got Rock Skin on them (well... maybe also multiple times on the same hero if you allow this, so it will be +2+2+2+2+2+2+2 dice in defence). The effect on each hero will last until he suffer a wound, then on the next empty room the Wizard could cast it again and again. So my idea is this: rolling a skull will result in nothing and end of the turn. Rolling a white shield will result in a succesful casting, but rolling a black shield will result in losing your turn and 1 mind point. So after 5 fails he will think twice before using it once more.
Another solution is to roll a red die. 6 is a successful cast, 1-5 is fail but with 1 he also lose a mind point.
