I've also seen guest spectators coming in, not saying anything, and leaving after 2-3 minutes, not responding when I say "hello" :/ When I first started seeing spectators in my game, I would always say hi, but most were anon and ignored me, so I just assumed they were using some kind of i...

Another question you could ask yourself is "Why do I spend 5-6 mana a shot on LRD or Iron shot to kill something nonthreatening when I could swing this cutlass for free" having the cutlass be effective would cost < 1 rank in spellcasting (Short blades are really cheap to get to min delay)...

Because it costs 0 mana, and the damage isn't as terrible as you might think. Cutlasses are never high damage, but with +10 it'll handle weaker things and not cost you mana. Don't use it on very dangerous things, but save mana on weaker things. Well, I don't know the difference yet between what is ...

Monster LCS is based on the monster's hit dice (roughly speaking, their level). It is one of the highest damaging spells in the game, but no, it can't hit you for 250.
