Yeah, that's really vague. How about this:
IQ 18: LIGHT RAY (M):
Does 1+1 damage for every ST put into it. It is a very powerful beam
of light about 1 cm. in diameter. Because it is so focused, it can
penetrate most obstacles (and targets), losing only a single die of
per target struck or per hex of *inanimate* matter penetrated. The
must roll to hit (or miss) all potential targets in the beam's path
it is reduced to zero dice of damage. The damage is rolled separately
each target. (For instance, if a 4 ST light ray is fired and strikes
figures roll 4d6+4 for the first one and 3d6+3 for the other.)
Inanimate matter, including created walls, is not much affected by
beam's passage, only having a clean 1 cm hole punched through it.
(Even though this is probably toned-down from what the author intended,
still think it's too cheap. Personally, I'd make the ST cost 2 per
bump it to 19 IQ, or maybe both...)
