In a message dated 96-09-18 10:28:55 EDT, you write:

<< 	Ballistas and spells?  Aren't ships a *bit* out of range for that?
 Maybe some good long range spells would be able to reach the ships, but
 I doubt that medival weapons could do anything...  I like the idea of the
 rock chaned to a bolt though... (:

 I forget where in the war captan's box set, but is says that ballistas,
catapults, ect. have the same range on the planet as in space when they are
brough into a gravity well. Spells have a large range just look at fireball
10yds+10yds/ level. Yes, they could still bomb them from a high altuide, but
you still need to take into effect wind, speed of the ship, ect. otherwise
the bomb will miss. In WWI and WWII the hight of the aircraft and its speed
were slowly increased with mechanical aid. But it is going to be a lot harder
to hit something even as big as a city from say 30,000 feet with out a great
deal of luck. Today we can put a nuke within 25 yards from the other side of
the world but there is on way that can by hand.
