new skill idea (in General)

Ok, this just floated into my brain, and since the space there is limited I had to let it out.
DD spells cast once per round right? How about a trainable skill (call it Master Mage) that allows for a chance at your spell casting ... TWICE per round. Similar to the multiple hits per round of high DX (and or PTH). I know, this could be much too much. I'm not much of a numbers thinker..." the math" makes my head hurt as some of you may recall, but the idea struck me as interesting. You could not only related the chance of a double hit to the skill level but also the resulting damage so it wouldn't be automatically a double hit of some massive damage just because of a huge spell level. Just a thought to share with my wonderful and supportive and non confrontational CB family.

Now props to you for posting this. I'm surprised flaks are not flying yet. Very controversial idea of course, but it is balancable. For example, make it 2 hits of 60% damage linearly scaled blah blah 2 hits of 50% at based. Pro: you get 20% more damage. Con: you are more vulnerable to ToE and RoBF threshold reductions. The training cost has to be less than 20% of dd of course. Otherwise, we'll just go ahead and train DD.

Now whether this is desirable is another question entirely. I'm all for choices in mage skill though :)

I say uncapped. for every 80% of xp in master mage (MM for short), you get another hit of full power. and partial XP you get another hit of proportional power.

mage seekers would so own this skill
