Hm. Didn't know about the "schools" before. Also, levitate/HOW are countered by weight. You need like pav or sul to float a half-giant. If the Rukkian had stoneskin on, that could account for it because that greatly increases your weight. Stoneskin is by far the best defense against Whirans there is.
In my experience, magick is Wisdom-based to hit/effect, and I believe wisdom and/or endurance based to defend. For example, high wisdom not only gives you more mana, it causes more damage on an attack spell, and gives you a greater chance of success on an "effect" spell like blind or sleep.
Dwarves also have a racial benefit to spell resistance, I believe.
I don't think Levitate/HOW are directly affected by 'weight' so much as 'size' (ie, the combination of weight AND height, so... mass, right?) Typically it takes a reach higher to float someone your same height/weight than it does to levitate yourself. With a rukkian, even one without stoneskin, the more codedly branched they are, the more difficult it seems to get, to the point that at one point, there was one who was a half-elf without stoneskin on who at mon I could make float for only a second, then they dropped back to the ground again, which is crazy because, again, that anecdote about HGs. You can levitate a freakin' beetle with mon. I know this, I've run down the shield wall on a levitating beetle before. Heh.

nile: almost guarantee arm staff are LOVING this. hahaha. long as the game is good fun it's all a bit irrelevant. but the anti-arm crew giving the arm staff some sense of schadenfreude based purely a forum for whining made me lol

vex: Bans are irrelevant, and pointlessly antagonistic. The only game I play, where staff address problems with aggression, bans, and down talk, is Arm. The rest have realized, all that results in, is a bitter player, more inclined towards "revenge" play.

vex: Better to incentivize ideal play and behavior, than try and fail to intimidate and leverage empty threats, because nobody is intimidated by an angry elf fetishist on the internet, and there are virtually no threats a player can't circumvent, easily.

baobob: Arm turned to condemnation, punishment and vengeful retribution against players pretty hard long, long ago. Never turned back.
