I have been playing recently Talisman main game with my 8 y.o daughter. She played Prophetess and was unlucky enough to get 1 twice (using fate) at City Enchantress. She had a Counterspell spell and without hesitation she said she used that spell to counteract changing to a toad by the Enchantress. Well, I got stuck - I have been playing Talisman for ages (15+ years), but never came to this point that someone is using that spell against 3rd party character. Initially, I said "no way" but she convinced me that Enchantress must be using a sort of magic (a spell?) to turn one into a toad. So, if you think that that way actually the Counterspell can be a powerful spell in duel games against strength-based characters’ hardly able to use craft (e.g. Troll) as it usually turns to be useless .
Later on she used another Counterspell against Imp to avoid teleportation to the place she did not want to.
Can someone make a comment on that, please? It makes some sense to me , but is it in line with all the rules? (a side note: we play only base game, no expansions)/
