    Magical movement through a Prismatic Sphere

    I have a question related to the 9th level MU spell Prismatic Sphere. I know any physical movement through the sphere will trigger damage according to the remaining colors, but is it possible to use magic to across the barrier of the sphere without triggering it? For example a Dimension Door spell could take a caster to a spot right next to the caster protected by the Prismatic Sphere, but would the 6th color (which stops magical spells) prevent the Dimension Door from working? And if the 6th color doesn't stop that spell how about the 7th color (force field protection)? Same question for a PC/monster who is Ethereal, could that spell or ability allow them to bypass the Prismatic Sphere?

    You have an 18th level caster in your party!!! Shocked

    Or is it a lich that YOU are using...? Evil Grin

    I would imagine since it is a 9th level spell (!), the penultimate of ALL sorcery in terms of power, that all forms of dimensional translocation, as well as movement through the Border Ethereal, WOULD be prevented.

    Others might disagree, of course...I will continue my research and see if I come up with anything in writing.
