    Say a player or NPC is running a shop in game and it's being raided. The shop keep has a yellow band, but also has enough mana bands to cast spells like Light or Root. Would they be able to cast non-damaging spells as a defensive measure to keep their assailant at bay?

    I would say that anybody who has the skills can cast it.
    Even if they are a non-combative player.

    So long as they remember that if they are within striking distance of the player attacking them.
    That player can call a hit and the defending player would have to take the hit as per the rules.

    Does that make sense?

    Yellow Banded player - "can still be engaged via non-physical roleplay." That does go both ways - and most of those spells are touch spells, so I would say it would not be fair for an NPC/Yellow Banded player to Touch you with a spell, yet you cannot do the same.
    Sadly in this system, and I do agree with it to some degree - Yellow Banded NPC's are defenseless.
    You can walk up to one and say "*smashes character in the head and kills them*" as apart of the roleplay (this is the example in the rulebook) and they have to comply.
