A tiny silver pellet shoots from the caster’s pointed finger, dealing 1d6 damage to the opponent struck. The caster must make a successful ranged touch to hit. For every two caster levels above 1st, the pellet deals an additional 1d6 damage to the opponent struck, to a maximum of 5d6 at 9th level.

This spell has an additional effect against creatures with a weakness to silver - lycanthropes, vampires and the like. Against such creatures, the spell deals an extra point of damage per bullet (1d6+1) and the save DC is increased by +1. This spell was created by wizards whose homeland was plagued by werewolves, and they now use this spell almost entirely as a replacement for magic missile.

Material component: A silver piece.
