in reply to Mark W.:

      As said, town portal is the worst abuse because it allows 
      you to return to just where you were.
Yes, I think the void idea is really a good solution
(and eventually a spellblocker thing on some maps later).

      Word of recall isn't quite so bad - there is some delay 
      factor before you get out (so you can't reliably use it
      if your about to die). 
WoR is quite okay. It effectively means quitting your
dungeon-quest and often it is hard to get back in.
Besides, we shouldn't forget that there are quite a few
badly-designed maps which trap players frequently.

The abuse-potential of Town Portal is a lot bigger
than from WoR. In fact, the two have little in common IMO.

      Actually doing backfiring depends on the chances of it 
      happening and the effects. [...]
Somehow I agree to what Mark (and others) said here.
Adjusting spell damage and monster resistance is probably
a better approach than backfires for attack spells.
