Q. Rule -Target slow Power

Whan playing power cards. Do you have to target them when you play em or can you freestyle ? 

Example. I have an idea if what a slow power will do, and i target it to a certain land. Then stuff happens during fast p - and invader phase. Now when slow Powers take effect, they dont have any value in the land i intendet to target it,  cause the scenario has changed. Can i then change the target of my slow power to take effect in another land, as long as i follow the range / and Target rules.  Or does the power just loose it´s effect in this turn ? Reading the rulebook i am thinking the answer to this question is NO. But i´m wondering, it kind of makes a big differance if Slow powers can be "redirected" dursing slow Power phase. It is a much easier game. 

Thanks

With slow powers you can alter your initial plans with them.   Only piece that matters is that it’s still a valid target for your slow power/card.

The easier way to think about it is that powers do not have a target until you use them, even if you have plans for how you might use them.  That way you can play powers without worrying about if they have a target yet but know they are likely to help and give you needed elements.  Also lets you coordinate with other Spirits after you've already played powers, but before they're used.
