Oh, and of course, if Sovil attacks Gorok with magic and ends up in an orb, some of the other mages will blame Gorok! Then they might try to kidnap him and beat him to within an inch of his life, flog him, or whatever. Oh, and the orb is probably created automatically when the mage tries to cast the spell. The energy of his spell is propelled back into the torc, and that creates the orb. I have to decide on a reason why Sovil, or any mage for that matter, would try to attack someone this way if they know that will happen. Anger? Crazed by pain, as in Sovil's case? Arrogant enough to think they can get around it? Maybe they think they have a spell that will get around it?
Oh, and because Sovil is orbed while still recovering from the flogging, and after the drug has worn off, he is going to be in terrible pain. Whenever the moon shines on the orbs, they will hear him screaming. Maybe it will be so bad that the mages will be able to get permission to have him put to death instead of leaving him in the orb. That, of course, will really upset his allies.
And why was Sovil attacking Wulf? Because of true antagonism? That would be more interesting than simply being crazed by pain or upset because he wanted more pain medication.
