Subject:  Re: I was thinking.....
	I was looking in the WCC Book #2 today, and I saw a ship
that had a weapon similar to my handheld version.  I had forgotten
about it, and I felt it might serve as a bit of justification.

	I think the ship was the Hummingbird, and it had
a crystal built into it which worked as a laser like device
by taking magic missiles fired into the crystal, amplifying
them, and then shooting them out the beak of the ship.

	I felt this sounded similar to my device, so I decided
to pull it out of the mothballs and see if this would work:

	Try replacing the Continual Light spell with
	a chamber charged with magic missiles.  When fired,
	the crystal collects the energy from the spell, amplifies it,
	and focuses the energy into a beam.  The spell is cast as
	if it was coming from a 10th level wizard, same damage
	but with a +4 to it.  Now, THIS should be along the lines
	of what I was thinking?  Comments?  Low-burn please.

	Oh, the weapon can be recharged if a high-enough
	wizard can be found to cast the spell.

	Reformed price:  Base price-400,000 GP
			 Recharging-100,000 GP

	Those prices should warrant it's power, since
	it will run out and recharging is rare
	since high level wizards are a little hard to
	come by.

	Maybe this is better.
