Explanation/Description: The ylfe-shot (pronounced “ilf-shot”) is one of the few direct attack spells possessed by the witch. It causes a seemingly-natural pain, such as a stabbing pain in the back or leg, which nevertheless causes 1d6 damage. The ylfe-shot is never fatal; at worst a creature can be reduced to 1 h.p. The target is allowed a saving throw vs. spells at +4. If the target is 10” or closer to the caster, it only gets +2 to the save. If the target is 5” or closer to the caster, it gets no bonus to the saving throw. The material components to this spell are a miniature bow and arrow with a flint arrowhead. The arrow is consumed in the casting. A shield spell will thwart the spell.
