A level 0 arcane spell
from the Dungeons and Dragons roleplaying game
, which works suspiciously like Star Wars
' Force Pull
ability. Mage hand
allows the caster
to lift and move one object from a distance. Said object may weigh no more than 5 lbs
The most common use of mage hand is to pick up objects that are otherwise out of reach. Tied up in lock and chains and can't reach the key? No problem! Mage hand will bring it to you! Alternatively, use your ability to move random objects through the air - scare the local magic-skeptic villagers into thinking that you're some kind of devil or satan-worshipping witch!
This spell is similar to the ability far hand, which allows the user to pick up items at a distance. Nerdy fanboys who play too much D&D and Playstation games will suggest that this is also the ability used by Soul Reaver's Raziel to tear those extra-pointy sticks from the wall for use as weapons.
