from the wiki under the spell description for cone of cold we have this as the first sentece: "The canonical direct damage spell."
what exactly does canonical mean in this context? this has perplexed me now for six years!
conical = in a cone shape

Canonical is an adjective derived from canon
yes, i know what conical means but that is not what it says. it says canonical which usually means: in its simplest form.
i guess the better question is why is cone of cold considered direct damage in its simplest form over fireball or magic missile? i would assume there is some d & d lore involved here and that is what i wanted to know actually.
It's the Ubuntu DD spell..
