the 2nd level spell mentions 10 feet per level as the range, but the description specifies touch.

I'm trying to figure on whether a mage using Astral Projection to penetrate the bedroom of a target, could observe their dreams via this spell, since they can't use touch and this spell is somewhat telepathic in nature.

Hmmm I would say yes that a person in astral could use it, but I don't have much experience dealing with the dreamstream

If the dreamer is in the Astral Plane I would say yes, but I wouldn't permit the astral self to use a touch power on a person in the physical plane. That would leave all sorts of things open that require touch, and not just benign stuff like Observe Dream.

yes, I agree, but the problem is that the range contradicts the power desc.

so are you saying, you'd only use the desc and ignore the Range ?

a lot of spells in Rifts require "Touch or XX feet" and while this isn't the same, it is PB.

whaddya think ?

I think i like this solution the best: Touch or 10'.

Or make two versions of the spell, some people know the good version, others the other (some both or the one above) ...whatever.

I don't consider range to be a cross-planer thing. If somebody is within 10 feet (per level) on the same plane, go for it, but not when in equivalent locations on seperate planes. I consider that an insuperable boundry to such powers.

It means that the 'window' has to apper within 10'/L of the dreamer.

And touching via astral projection is cocidered "touching" for spell deffinition of touching.
