I love the concept. Several things need clarification, but like you say it's not supposed to be playable yet. Imagine a system with similar abilities that was mundane. Fighters might actually get nice things for once. This is quite an inspirational idea.
Feel free to take it in your own direction.
Long: An action which could normally be performed at touch range is instead performed at Close range (400ft +40ft per caster level).
One of these things is not like the others.
No idea what you're talking about. >_>
