Multi-fire is a combat maneuver that allows an archer to fire multiple arrows in a single volley.

To fire at multiple targets, use CMAN MFIRE with no target after the verb. CMAN MFIRE <target> will shoot multiple arrows at one target.

Many people find it quicker to fire individual shots than to use mfire; a GameMaster has said it's a fact that the skill is lacking, reflecting the opinion of the general population of players.
