CAST

This is a command used to cast a spell. Depending on the spell, it may be cast at oneself, at another player, item or creature - or any combination of those four. A spell must be prepared before it may be cast, using the PREPARE verb.

Armor hindrance is always a risk factor when casting, as it may affect the chances of your cast working correctly. Those who are undertrained in Armor Use will find their chances for armor hindrance are higher. Those who are overtrained may find their chances for spell casting failure are lower.

If you do not specify a target, the spell with be cast on yourself by default.

It is recommended that you type the name of any target in full. Should you accidentally cast at the wrong target, a misfire could be hazardous to the health of your character.

See ATTACK for reference to special Voln messages which may occur when one successfully kills undead critters by AMBUSHing, ATTACKing, CASTing, FIREing, HURLing, MSTRIKEing or TRIPing)
