spells magic missile



This is a demonstration of how a spell can be made to affect several targets. Not my discovery as such, but a little-known feature I would like to make popular. The property you need to edit in the SPL file is -> Spell ability - > Number of targets. This example file, Magic Missile, works as the pen-and-paper spell did in that you can distribute the missiles as you like. However, this does make the casting more unwieldy and increases the potential for abuse - you can now interrupt several enemy casters with one volley. It is your own game, so be smart.

 

Technicality. The vanilla spell uses special "salvo animations" when multiple missiles are to be fired. They fly in arcs, clearly separate. The multiple-target version is less spectacular: all missiles fly straight to their targets (as in the Wand of Missiles or the 1st-level version of the spell), and often blend if fired at the same one. This is unfortunate.

 

Installation. There is no installer. Plunk the file in the override folder.
