	In my Illusion rules I posted a couple 
weeks ago this is impossible with normal Illusions,
(but you could try it with a phantasmal).  However 
in my campaign, a maximum of 5 fST per turn can
be put into a missile spell.  So unless you build up
its power for 10 turns, a 50 fST Fireball would be
impossible so everyone would get an easy free
disbelief roll of that Phantasmal.

	No standard rule. I have ruled in my 
campaign that 1 one hex elemental can have up to 
15 ST, a 2 hex elemental can have 30 ST, etc.  Thus a 
one hex Phantasmal could have 15 ST and would be
'believable' (you can't make Illusions of elementals
in my new rules).
