All packet attacks are delivered by throwing a packet or by touching a packet to a target. This includes spells, gas globes, and attacks using pure elemental forces. The packet only needs to touch the target or any possession of the target to take effect. When using any Packet delivery, the full call must be made before releasing the packet. “Say, then throw” is a good reminder of the proper order. Poison attacks (whether through alchemy or from a monster) are represented by orange packets. Arrows and bolts are represented by blue packets. Spell packets, therefore, can never be orange or blue.
