Syntax: cast 'hone weapon' <weapon>

Even an apprentice mage of earth eventually garners substantial knowledge
in the working of raw physical matter, a fact evident in the hone weapon
spell among others. With these magics such a scholar may both repair and
improve a weapon, albeit temporarily. The points and edges of piercing and
slashing weapons will be honed by this spell, resulting in a small boost to
damroll; bashing weapons will be rebalanced, improving their hitroll.
Weapons which do not deal physical damage lie outside the purview of such
basic earth magics, and thus cannot be honed. Facility with the forgemaster
skill will slightly improve this working.

Primary Attributes: Wisdom, Dexterity
