Acutally, Hold Person should not be an Enchantment/Charm spell, but an
evocation/invocation spell. Here is the reason.

A. It's an attack spell. It is used to hold one person in one place.

B. It either pits a force to prevent the person from moving (eg. gravity) or it
affects the voluntary nervous system (it prevents signals to be recieved by
skeletal muscles). Either way, a force is invoked in both cases. I prefer the
gravity effect, because Magic is an outside force.

At least when it is not channeled through one's brain (heh, heh).
