I don't think it's unbalanced. I just thought the original comment on the topic was somewhat off-target. It should be a CL 35-ish spell, though, since it isn't worth much till after stat gain.

Extra damage sides is huge late in the game (eg. 8d5 vs 8d7 with Slay evil is a whopping 16 points nominal *per blow*.) I agree it is useless with a light weapon.

Is there any way to specify a smaller font size? An extra 6 squares horizontally would make a big difference in improved LOS.

Did you snaffle the new parsing code from V? It is MUCH cleaner and easier than the older implementations.

I am guessing modern (4.0 and later) would make for a way cleaner PosBand re-implementation than PCB. That codebase includes some of the worst old-school spaghetti code I have seen in a looong time.
