Re: (TFT) Re: TFT Digest V4 #463
On second thoughts add:
- SUMMON PROOTWADDLE (C: IQ 7, ST 1/1) Summons a prootwaddle [S
T 10, DX
10, IQ 6, MA 10, carries two-handed maul 1+1, 1-3 unarmed in HTH] to fig
for the caster.
- UNREALISTIC IMAGE (C: IQ 7, ST 1/-) Creates a translucent 1 hex image
that wouldn't normally fool anyone. Last 12 turns. Can be disbelieved on
vs IQ. Can be as effective, or almost as effective, as a normal Image sp
in difficult seeing conditions (fog, etc.), if the creature being simula
happens to be translucent, or if the observer is a prootwaddle.
The spells are IQ 7, not IQ 1. Probably should be a space between IQ and 7.
The idea is that an ordinary prootwaddle can't learn them, but one of those
rare freakish prootwaddle geniuses can.
