Syntax: cast 'magic missile'
Magic Missile is a magiophysical assault. The caster manifests a 2' long, 1"
diameter rod of glowing greenish magical energy. It takes form over the
caster's arm, which must be held motionless during the procedure as the magic
follows the electrical conduits of the caster's nervous system. This of
necessity prohibits the use of an offhand weapon while casting magic missile.
Once the missile has been fully manifested, the caster has but to point at
the target and the missile wings its way towards the target at breakneck
The missile's dimensions are always 2' long by 1" wide, regardless of the size
of the caster or victim. Naturally, the missiles do much more damage to
smaller targets than to large ones.
