Is it a bug, or is it deliberate?

Dec 09, 2008
Has anyone else noticed that the NPC's (monsters) can cast two and three pip spells and it only costs them one pip? And not even a power pip. I had quite a few hits from spells that would cost me two pips to cast, and it only cost the NPC one for the same spell. Or even one pip spells that didn't cost them anything. And every single battle, my first spell always fizzles. I even had a zero pip wand spell fizzle. Is Malistaire up to dirty tricks again? Or am I just having an especially unlucky streak?

there are spells that can make other spells fizzle, such as black mantle (-50% accuracy on next spell)
