There is a very minor base spell power (since it costs a few mana to cast any spell). In most cases of magical combat, the extra mana drowns out the base mana by a huge margin. Since both sides have the same moon phase, that is also not a major factor in magical clashes. Overall, yes, the only thing the full moon effects is spell power and casting distance. If you aren't adding mana, the moon phase is largely irrelevant.

My sentence in the post above was probably constructed badly. Allow me to rephrase.

[Adding extra mana] is done to increase the spell power, which makes the magic harder to dispel or overturn. Spell power is calculated as ((base mana + extra mana) * mage tower level * (1+moon bonus)).

Doesn't your magic score also go up if you get thieved and have to re-cast your defensive rune?
Or, if you level up a runemaster and then re-cast your rune to take advantage of the higher level?

The amount of mana required to cast a rune is tiny compared to adding extra mana to a geomancy or blight.
