EXAMPLE TIME: An air ninja has 3d6 and 1d8 to create a bridge with thickened air density to help some non-magik ninjas get to the other side. it is 20" to get to the other side, and he puts 2d6 to skill, and 1d6+1d8 to range. his skill roll is 6, so that is ok, but his length roll is only 13". It will take 2 turns for the ninjas to make it as he expected, but thankfully they've already made it half way across. he only has to roll 8" on length next turn. the ninja's can jump the other 7", while they wonder what will happen to their sensei.
Is that ok to use?
For your example, skill rolls are no longer required for supernatural effects. Stubby will have to weigh in, but the question that pops into my mind is how you are taking into account all the dimensions needed. I.e. the bridge needs to be long, but wide as well for the ninjas to cross.
It totally avoids your questions, but an easier solution would be to give your air ninja a 1d10 instead of 1d8, use the 1d10 to make sure all of his buddies get hit by the effect, and then throw 3d6 at increased move
for everyone for the turn. I suspect that many of the things a wizard could want to do through "physical manifestation" can be replicated by skill/move/damage/armor/range modifications.
