Re: Gate spell [CODE]

Problem is:
When cast, the portal can be kept there indefinite. Meaning it will
remain until the caster steps through.

My suggestion, is to let it remain a few ticks, and then let it fade.
Otherwise, your players will cast it
and never walk through it.
Send the cleric through and summon the Sorcerer (or whom ever cast it).

My suggestion is to either leave it the way it is, or only allow the
caster to walk through.
