Hi.

The Hyptonic Pattern spell should only affect enemies according to its description.

However the current implementation is also affecting allies!

The implementation is correct but the spell description is wrong. Hypnotic Pattern can affect all creatures within the area, not just enemies.

Yeah I got fooled by the description as well.  Slow is the opposite where it only targets hostile creatures but doesn't say so.

The 3D sphere icon seems wrong for both those spells as well since it indicates that the effect is centered around the caster rather then being targeted away from the caster (It should look more like the 3D icon for the Fireball spell).  If this was corrected and icons for allies and enemies were put inside the sphere for those affected, I think this should improve the situation.
