Ok best answer to
: can you ground spells through quickenings.

Yes : p36 Corporate Security Handbook, column 2. Only a shadowland
comment but it is FASA and as its an affirmative probably trustable

to quote ' Also, the security magician is instantly alerted if one of
his quicken light spells goes down. The disadvantage is, an intruder
can ground through the spells.'

This also suggests a sort of link, creator - quickening, like you can
control foci / feel the loss of your spirts (see for example Burning
Bright, The main character in that acta like an organised an sensible
shadow mage, note his mental comment on feeling silly when he goes to
collect all his foci (and that is a very impressive collection)).

Pity like so many other things its only mentioned as Shadowland and
not covered in the rules section.
