    1) Thank's DKE for the support DKE
    2) This is an interesting idea. I suspect that it might get a little
    overpowering. One of the major limitations on the effects of battle spells
    is the cost of the components (usually a minimum of 1GB/spell, sometimes a
    lot more). If you invade the elven realms, you are going to see a *lot* of
    battle spells given that any apprentice can cast Rain of Magic Missiles with
    this suggestion.
