    Does the property "Mage Weapon" work with the new Gargolye weapons? I havent had any success.

    *mods up a disc mace and tries it* ... seems to work for me. What item were you trying?

    I took non-runic gm boomerang and imbued it with the following properties:

    Fastcast
    Mage Weapon ( -20 Magery )
    50 Hit Lower Defence

    Then i used the mysticism spell "Enchant" which adds spellchannel and 50 hitspell to the weapon.

    The boomerang would swing @ targets but it would never hit.

    So it would seem "enchant" spell is not working with the "mage weapon" property.

    *mods up a boomerang with -29 mage weapon*

    hmm ... I tried about 20 shots with 90 throwing/0 magery and 0 throwing/120 magery against a slightly annoyed boura and hit about half the time each way.

    standard throwing questions:
    - were you carrying a shield? (massive penalties if you have low parrying)
    - were you fighting at point blank range? (heavy penalties)

    Looks like it was the shield. Thanks for clearing that up.
