As of March 31 2008, my ISP's USENET feed provider ceased to exist (buyout by another company). Since that date, I no longer have any access to the USENET. Therefore, I am forced to discontinue r.g.r.a frontend on website.

Meteor swarm is not a ball spell.  It fires three powerful magic missiles in the
same direction so that if it kills one monster, the other one or two missiles go
on to the monster behind it.  That is why it's listed as 48x3.

There is also cloudkill, a more powerful version of stinking cloud.
