The spellbook of psi bolt, in GruntHack, contains the spell psi bolt, derived from the vanilla monster spell of the same name.

It is essentially a one-square-range immediate magic missile, dealing (xplev/2+1)d6 damage (halved when used against magic-resistant targets); higher-level spellcasters can therefore deal significant damage with this spell - a level 30 character deals 16d6 damage with magic missile, averaging 56 damage per hit. This spell's damage is doubled for Knights by carrying the Magic Mirror of Merlin.
