Then remember, if one spell doesn't need upkeep, other shouldn't
either. Do we want this? There's no way to limit how many spells
one spellcaster can have at same time. I fear this eventually leads
to a situation where master mages cast spells that wipe out cities
and races with "overland" meteor storms when they same time use
powerful enchantments to protect them from harm and and spells
to cause havoc among those who try to defeat them...
