I think there ought to be a spell of some sort like telekinesis that
mages can use like the throw skill is used. Creates often have items
that they wish to throw, and I, as a cause, just wish i had some way
of getting a mob to come to me. That is all.

You might want to just use throw or shoot -- I think it'd be cute if mages
could make fireballs, but IMHO there are so many cool things we can do wit
er with spells, replicating the throw/shoot skills doesn't make a lot of s
sense. Up with uniqueness! :)

I kinda think that it could be used in 2 ways. You could use
it to do normal things like throw a vial or maybe a rusty knife,
but also could be used maybe with a meteorite during battle to
do some hellacious damage. Could be cool, a spell that requires
a material object from the game and does good damage. Could
still be stopped by juggle I suppose, but juggle a meteriorite eh :P

let's just give create mages a spell that knows the skill throw :p
err, meant allowing them summoning one that knows how to throw.
their 'dex' for the throw will be based on caster's mind and spell
level, prolly half their mind + spell level = their throw ability.
for cause mages, maybe a hurl spell that allows them to send throwable
items towards an enemy for mana equivalent of stun, perhaps.

oh yah, to allow for some differentiation with the skill, the
summoned mob should be an illusion so that ppl with det.ill cannot
be thrown at, and for the cause version a sink should have a chance
to stop the missile :p

Usually the reason I want to throw is to get a mob to come to me. To
that end, how about a magic dart spell that doesn't do a lot of
damage, but will cause the mob to rush at you?
Not as flexible as the throw skill, and absolutely useless when you
need to throw a specific thing, but I'd like to see it.
On the other hand, I did make the effort and managed to get the
right stat balance to learn throw without screwing up my other
stuff, and you can also pack a small bow with cheap rent to
get a mob to rush at you. If you're a create mage, you can have
your doppel do the shooting!

you guys missed her point...throwing/shooting should be reserved for chars
like me, who only CAN shoot/throw :P
You silly mages go play with your charmies, healing, stuns, etc. etc.

It really isn't that difficult for a mage to have minimum stats for
throw. My 3c con/mind mage managed it. Ok, it may be a lousy
throw, but it does the job that char wanted it to do. As well,
I could carry around a bow and arrow -- my cause has the ability
to create zombies, my create can make homunculi, doppels, etc to
wield a bow.
