Sigh.  Yes.  We decided to stop awarding XP for damage done by 
illusions after a few too many illusionary octopi were unleashed
on various dim-witted ogres and giants.  It's just too easy.

Hm, I like this but I'm afraid Wizard's Wrath may be a good reason 
not to do it.  Given that a two-die roll is almost automatic success, 
this lets a wizard unleash fairly hefty 2d6+2 attacks with frightening
accuracy.  It strikes me that this rule might help an overly IQ-heavy 
clown avoid the penalties of his relatively low DX.
