	I agree.  For this spell to be useful, it should last minutes 
not seconds.

	I agree that bows are too cheap compared to the
other fighting talents.  As Michael will attest, that was a talent
I DID NOT suggest a cheaper price for.

	If you look at my new magic items (posted to the list
a long time ago). You will notice that almost all the items were
made 1 fST per turn.  I also made a leather flesh item that stopped
2 points of damage.  I adjusted the costs but the powerful 
defensive items stayed expensive.

	Ah, come on,  don't tell me you have never rolled
up 132 characters (with a witness) some time in order to get
your scout ship.
