I'm using common sense differently here. I can perfectly imagine the Dr
getting carried away with ultra-powerful combat spells. Also, that 4 AP
damage can be put to good use in runner-vs-runner combat. The opposition is

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
