I can use the power of wizzard:


Arcane WhirlwindHowling winds straight from the Elemental Chaos whip your foes around the battlefield.Daily        Arcane, Evocation, Implement, Thunder, Zone
Standard Action      Area burst 2 within 10 squaresTarget: Each creature in the burstAttack: Intelligence vs. ReflexHit: 2d6 + Intelligence modifier thunder damage, and you slide the target 1 square.Miss: Half damage.Effect: The burst creates a zone of rushing winds that lasts until the end of your next turn. As a minor action, you can slide one creature within the zone 2 squares. As a move action, you can move the zone 6 squares.Sustain Minor: The zone persists, and you can slide one creature within the zone 2 squares




To move a creature that occupies 9 square with the effect of this magic,

whereas a creature normally occupies only one square????????????



They won't occupy 9 squares, but be moved 9 squares.  Here is an example:


The field:

XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXEXXXX
XXXXXAXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX 
E = Enemy
X = Blank Space
A = Center of Arcane Whirlwind.

Assuming you hit you can do this:
 
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXEXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXZXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX  

Moving the creature one square. Now as a minor action on that turn you can choose to slide the creature 2 squares furthur (since it is still in the zone.)

XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXEX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXZXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX   

Then as a movement action say you want to move the zone.

XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXEX
XXXXXXXXZX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX    

It goes there.  On the monster's turn he moves away. to this formation:

XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXZX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXEXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX     

If you wanted to on your next turn you could use 2 minors and a move in order to move and sustain the zone, and move the creature.  It would look like this:

Move action to move the zone:

XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXZXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXEXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX      

It is now in the zone, so you can sustain minor to move it here:

XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXEZXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX       

Then downgrade your standard action to a minor action (not sure why you would want to do this, but it is something you can do) to move it like this:

XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXEXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXZXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX       

Make sense?  The creature only occupies one square, but can be moved a lot.

Need a few pre-generated characters for a one-shot you are running? Want to get a baseline for what an effective build for a class you aren't familiar with?

(Thanks for helping me already but...)



I do not think
I expressed it right
.... Imagine the following situation:
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXEEEXXX
XXXZEEEXXX
XXXXEEEXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX   





E: a creature very large single
Z: Center of the Zone brust 2



I could Slide a creature of such size with effeito ZONE???

Sure.  basically just slide the center of the creature.

That would be 1 square of sliding and the creature would still be in the zone.  The creature doesn't need it's whole body in the zone to be able to be moved.  An ancient gargantuan blue dragon only needs his pinky toe in the zone to be tossed about.

Thks very much
Unless the specific power you are using specifies that there is a size limit, there isn't one.  If it says you push, pull, or slide the target, then can do so.
Another day, another three or four entries to my Ignore List.
