Shooting Lightning from the Hands
While we’re still on the subject of wizards, their ability to fire bolts of pure lightning from their hands is also steeped in science... sort of. In order to emit electricity, our wizard would need to have a negative charge resulting from excess electrons. Next, he needs a conductor to transfer these electrons—like, say, the positively charged metal armor of marauding goblins. Coming into contact with the wizard’s electrons, the ugly guys get the shock of a lifetime. Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an overstatement when an irritating jolt would be more accurate.
