So now that the effects are starting to flex their conditional muscle, when will we see conditionals for spell schools, subschools and descriptors?

Things like isTarget or isTargetted would be extremely helpful.

Both good suggestions. I'll add 'isCritical' to the suggestion list.

I imagine the new conditional operator would look like "SPELL ([spell type]*)" where spell type would allow multiple entries and include: abjuration, conjuration, divination, enchantment, evocation, illusion, necromancy, transmutation, calling, creation, healing, summoning, teleportation, scrying, charm, compulsion, figment, glamer, pattern, phantasm, shadow, polymorph, acid, air, chaotic, cold, curse, darkness, death, disease, earth, electricity, emotion, evil, fear, fire, force, good, language-dependent, lawful, light, mind-affecting, pain, poison, sonic and water.

The code from the creature type should be mostly reusable. The only issues I see are that 'shadow' is both a subschool and a descriptor, and that two of the descriptors have hyphens which may cause problems if FG strips them when parsing.
