Zomben,

I was finally able to buy Magic World at DriveThruRPG. Why did it take Chaosium so long to post the PDF on that site?

Anyway, I could not find any spot rule, or other rule, dealing with missile fire into melee. Was this an oversight?

I have no idea.

Yeah, looks like that was forgotten. There are various ways to do it in BRP games. The version I've used is simply make the character use the rules for Aiming to hit a specific target in the melee. If the archer's attack fails, then have him make a Luck roll. Success means he hit -something- in the mob. Have all potential targets make a Luck roll and the one who fails by the greatest margin takes the hit.
Please note I do not actually work for Chaosium; I just do the occasional freelance editing work for them.
