After a couple of seconds it deposit on everything, even the invisible person. But there is a big difference between what stick to a moving creature against what fall to the ground.
You have ever seen one of those graduation ceremonies where students throw handful of flour against the one getting his degree?
They are throwing flour directly against him, but unless he/she is wet very little stick to the target. And they are throwing it directly against him.
I've seen pictures (and video) of Kim Kardashian being flour-bombed. She was covered in copious amounts.Diego Rossi wrote:
In this situation you aren't doing that, you are throwing your flour in the air or on the ground trying to cover the whole square.so it do [b+exactly[/b+ what it say it do. It "momentarily reveals if there is an invisible creature there".
you see, there is a rule,it say exactly what it do. Arguing that it "logically should do" something different as no place in this section of the forum.
There's no doubt in my mind that there will be significant amounts of flour on a creature if there was enough flour to outline it. The invisibility mentioned in the powder entry is referring to the general concept of invisibility, as mentioned in the glossary. (Which, incidentally, includes this snippet: "One could coat an invisible object with flour to at least keep track of its position (until the flour falls off or blows away).")Diego Rossi wrote:
So for you, how long is "momentarily" and how you read "reveals if there is an invisible creature there" is the same thing as it is cover it and make it visible?
That's another problem right there. "Momentarily" is not specifically defined in the rules so anyone's interpretation of how long this moment lasts is valid. Anyone's interpretation that's not ridiculous is valid and a correct way to handle the powder issue in the game.
Also, who's to say that the interpretation of "momentarily" we're supposed to apply here isn't its...
One could coat an invisible object with flour to at least keep track of its position (until the flour falls off or blows away).
Object, not a creature, for the simple reason that you aren't throwing some flour in its general direction, you are coating it.Coating something in flour is a bit more thoroughly than simply throwing the flour in its area and hoping that enough will cover it.
And, just for the record, a unit of powder is 1/2 lbs, about 230 grams. In a 1,5*1,5 meters area.
About 1 gram for square cm of the floor. Way kless when you consider all the vertical surfaces. "significant amounts". Not really.
You are missing the not insignificant point that you are targeting the square, not a creature.
