Aside from the mandatory casting of the Command Spell in the Crown of Command, a character may perform any and all other actions, including the casting of spells, correct?

Im somewhat disappointed.. was hoping for some clarification on:

The reflection and lightningbolt spell.
If the "add X when rolling the DIE to pray.." works in temple.
If the valkyrie resurrect ability only applies to the exact word kill (which is almost never used).
If hidden pouch/bag of holding etc is stolen by trixter/destroyed by spell are the items inside stolen/destroyed as well?
If you gain a spell in the middle of your turn, can you cast it immediately?

I know there is more but cant remember now. But still, better that nothing anyways I guess =P

If the grim reaper encounter a character in the middle region and a 5 is rolled, the character can teleport the grim reaper to another character who is in the outer region or another region. (except the inner region)

 Anyone know what it means on Q5 for the Grim Reaper?  I was not aware of any special Grim Reaper rule on a roll of 5?  I thought he could cross freely between regions at the Tavern and Sentinel but this implies he can teleport?  Confused on that one.....

Destroy Magic in effect and a Talisman still protects you in the Valley of Fire. Balderdash.
