manual mistakes
I think these didn't get updated with 1.1.1


> [BOOKCASTING] doing so costs quintuple the amount of power points

actually, it costs only tripple for all the PC's I've tested this with

> Power has various effects: it increases the range and/or damage

actually, power (effectivity) doesn't increase spell range

> R - Maximum range (as determined by the range formula).
> r - Remaining range points when target is hit.

I think the 'remaining range points' are given as 'R*' in the game's
spell screen. May be mistaken on that one though.

1) Bookcasting was already fixed in the manual.

Why did the manual state 'quintuple', wasn't it perhaps the intention of the creator to make it 5x instead of 3x and he made a typo in the code and not the manual?

The code history shows that the factor "3" was in there since 1999. So I guess it must be the correct one, but I'll ask Thomas too.

Thanks, I mean 'quintuple' as to 'triple' is not an easy typing error to make.

I don't know much German, but perhaps it was more of a translation error?

Us old folks sometimes make typing errors which are not spelling errors, but rather, writing one word when we really mean a different word.

For example, I should have written "We old folks" instead of "Us old folks." :)

Changed "r" to "R*". Regarding affecting range the manual is correct - the power of your spell affects range. With more experience range increases for some spells.
