Summary 0008864: Change wording for awkwardly/magically throwing
Description Currently, Portal Projectile produces messages like "Magically, the naga sharpshooter shoots an arrow". I find this wording somewhat awkward, so this patch changes it to "The naga sharpshooter magically shoots an arrow."

At the same time, this patch changes "awkwardly throw" (when throwing an object that's not a projectile weapon) with "toss away". This change was made in order to avoid awkward phrasing such as "You awkwardly magically throw a bread ration" (which becomes "You magically toss away a bread ration"). It also avoids the suggestion that the character wasn't sufficiently skilled to throw the object properly, while still suggesting that the act of throwing didn't accomplish much.
