I think I addressed this point a couple of months ago.

In the write-up which I sent to Ken Rolston for Dorastor: Land of Doom,
the use restrictions were part of the write-up. These were dropped by
Ken, I believe for space reasons.

When working on Lords of Terror, I wanted to add these back in, but again
they were cut, and again I think it was for space reasons.

In The Book of Drastic Resolutions, Volume Chaos, I provided this
information on the use restrictions of these spells.

I note that the original Telmor cult write-up, in Heroes #4, by Sandy
Petersen, did have the use restrictions. And I know Greg did not say to
take them out. Thus, I would suggest that these limitations on casting
the spells be taken as still being official.

Ah, my unfamiliarity with the game is the culprit, then. There is no
other trait available which is even close, eh? Too bad.

I swear, I looked at Sandy's list _twice_ and somehow missed Asrelia on
it both times. Sorry!
